Elon Musk Reveals Startling Plans to Die on Mars and Twitterati Is Dreaming
Elon Musk has never kept mum about his ambitions on social media and after acquiring Twitter, the tech billionaire has made several controversial decisions for which he received severe backlash. It now appears the netizens have been lowkey supportive of Musk’s ultimate dream, which is taking humanity to Mars. Recently, Musk left a puzzling reply to a tweet from @sterlingcrispin that included statistics on the number of Americans preparing for a doomsday scenario. It’s safe to say that the response has sparked people’s interest in his online antics once again.
Musk's outburst simply read: "I will die in America (or Mars if lucky)" Twitteratti was fast to post their reactions as soon as Musk's tweet reply caught their attention. Some questioned if "relocating to Mars is possible in our lifetime" while others called Musk's plans a "cheap gimmick" and "low-level space exploration" compared to NASA. But a few are still hopeful about Musk's grand plans of relocating to our neighboring planet.
I will die in America (or Mars if lucky)— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 1, 2023
The tweet on which Musk left a comment showed statistics whose source wasn’t mentioned. The stats claimed that 59% of American 18-24-year-olds are already making plans for doomsday. Crispin's tweet further read: "Theil and Sam Altman are prepped for the apocalypse, yet are investing and building the most advanced AI we've ever seen. This narrative conflict of growth and collapse has been a thread in my art for nearly ten years. This was the central theme of my 2020 exhibit Future Tense"
I want to hitch a ride on Haley’s Comet when it comes in July 2061. @ElonMusk any seats open for that?— Randell Hynes (@HynesForNevada) April 1, 2023
I had a dream recently that I was living in a plastic igloo thing on Mars.— Jeffrey Hamilton (@Jeffrey89530615) April 1, 2023
My cat was there too, and we weren’t wearing suits or anything, so I think there was atmosphere.
It had a New Mexico vibe.
What is the possibility of eating burger 🍔 on Mars 🤔— CryptoLord NE 📊📈 (@CryptoDefiLord) April 1, 2023
Mars would be pretty legendary— MrBanks💰 (@Mrbankstips) April 1, 2023
Musk's tweet reply has prompted his loyalists to band together praying for their favorite billionaire to "stay alive for as long as possible because the earth needs him." Even though some believe that "Mars would be pretty legendary," SpaceX and Musk still have a long way to go before they can ferry mankind to Mars.
According to CNBC, the SpaceX, and Twitter CEO is "highly confident" that the company will land humans on Mars in "about six years from now." "If we get lucky, maybe four years," Musk said while attending an award show webcast from Berlin, Germany. "We want to send an uncrewed vehicle there in two years." The Starship which SpaceX is developing in Boca Chica, Texas is moving rapidly but it’s not moving as fast as Musk hoped when he unveiled the first prototype rocket in September 2019 (he had even written a company-wide mail asking to accelerate progress “dramatically and immediately”), per the outlet. We also hope that someday Musk can pave the way to Mars.
