Elon Musk Wants To Put A Million People On Mars. Here’s Why

Mars – Red planet

Musk mentioned in a video interview that today it would cost a trillion dollars to go to Mars.  In today’s article we need 100,000 trips to get a million people with necessary supplies there.  So if we started flying there today,  it would cost 1 trillion x 100,000. What number is that? I do have to say he mentioned we need to get the cost down to half a million,  so $500,000 x 100,000 trips seems a little more realistic.

Oh, but Tesla Has Changed the world Already!

So I read this article titled “Elon Musk’s Tesla Is Awesome, But It’s Not Going To Change The World”, and I would have to say I disagree with the author/article.

I mainly disagree with his logic behind “And it captures less than 1% of the global auto market.”

For instance if you take the Wright brothers as an example,  they made flight a reality.  How long did it take after they took flight for mass commercial flight to come into effect?
With the authors mentality and reasoning it would be safe to say that the Wright brothers did not change the world.

I believe they did.  Pioneers and visionaries change the world and it’s not only quantified by market share or penetration.
