There has been lots of controversy surrounding the billionaire Elon Musk, the second richest person on Earth after Jeff Bozo and I think he is a rather peculiar person, yet undoubtedly very smart. He's basically a rich geek. I have to give him credit for what he has achieved so far and if he actually manages to get humanity (publicly) to Mars then that would be quite the achievement. Mars has always somehow been a special dream of mine, not in the sense that I would want to live in the current environment of the planet, but there is just something so fascinating about it and about space travel too. If we humans imagine something great then surely we can turn that into reality. He is a billionaire and generally I think they should not exist, but he is actually trying to achieve something important and beneficial with his money. He has been focusing on clean energy too with his other companies, solar power, electric cars and such.
"There have to be reasons that you get up in the morning and you want to live. Why do you want to live? What's the point? What inspires you? What do you love about the future? If the future does not include being out there among the stars and being a multi-planet species, I find that incredibly depressing." ~ Elon Musk
In these videos he introduces his Starbase rocket factory in Texas. Any thoughts on this and his efforts?
