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.
Here’s the video
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.
This is one sweet looking car! It’s hard to believe you never have to put gas in it and that its free to charge up while you take it across the country! I spoke with the owner he was really cool!
Free Charging !!!

ArtPrize 2014 living art
I had planned on launching a Kickstarter Campaign. Apparently Art and an Art Exhibit is by their rules not considered something that can “be completed” or “shared with others”. I believe it was a blessing though because Indiegogo was way easier to use and was a breeze to set up! Check out my project@ http://igg.me/at/redplanetgreendragons
It will definitely be a value to advertise on the Tesla project car! I will be an Uber Driver for a minimum of 5 years. I also will be at ArtPrize 2015 with typical attendance of 250,000+ as well as repeat visits totaling 400,000 visits. Continue reading

Welcome to the Indiegogo Project Green Dragons Site. Thank you for coming and checking into what I’m trying to accomplish with your help. Last week was National Drive Electric Week. This week is the start of ArtPrize 2014. New York also had a great turn out (hundreds of thousands!) to last weeks climate march. This project aims to accomplish a ton. Here is a quick list and low down of what we will make happen:
- Order a Tesla Model S – Tesla Owners I could use your help with your pledge of a tank or two gas equivalent ($49-$149)
- Apply Artwork to the Hood – Apply Sponsor Logo’s to the car
- Become a Grand Rapids Uber Driver for a 5 year period
- Enter the car into Grand Rapids ArtPrize 2015 – Featuring Mars Exhibit, Space X Dragon Capsule (pending Approval from Mr Musk)
- Un-tethered Virtual Reality becomes part of the ArtPrize Exhibit, bringing attendees on a Virtual Trip to Mars on Dragon Space Capsule!!!
- Install Renewable Energy 14kw-20kw Solar Panel System to power Home Base+Car/Cars (Model X will make an appearance dressed in Dragon Capsule Attire!)
The minimum goal will bring about numbers 1-3, the stretch goals will make 5&6 a reality! (There is also some secret stretch goals to be announced as the project moves forward!)
