Elon Musk has mentioned his plans of taking humans to Mars for a while and he finally has a timeline for it.
Elon Musk appeared on the exclusive audio-only Clubhouse app Sunday night, joining The Good Time Show and talked all things Mars, memes and monkeys playing video-games.
Musk has mentioned a time-line to get humans on the red planet. Five and a half years, Musk told hosts Sriram Krishnan and Aarthi Ramamurthy at the beginning of the show.
It's not a hard deadline and Musk listed a number of caveats, there's a raft of technological advances that must be made in the intervening years. The important thing is that he will establish Mars as a self-sustaining civilization.
Musk said, Over time you can make Mars Earth like by terraforming the planet by warming it up.
When asked if he would allow his children to go to Mars on a future rocket trip he said 'if we're talking about the third or fourth set of landings on Mars I'd be ok with that, so far none of them are jumping to go to Mars.
