Said it once and I'l say it again: SLAVES

I mean, are we surprised that the guy who's family fortunes were built on the backs of slavery would be openly advocating for its return in the form of indentured servitude in a colony on a planet un-bound by the laws of Earth?

Only at least in Australia you could breathe the air and raise livestock. There is literally nothing on Mars worth humans doing unless you're a scientist or something. Maybe a Mars Only Fans account?

I can't believe Musk thinks that he should be paid to send people live in what would be the most desolate location humans can occupy. The novelty is going to wear off really quick, like being in lockdown for the rest of your life. Enjoy the empty reddish expanse as far as the eye can see. That or the walls of your tiny pod.

Here you go. TL:DR, Spacex exaggerates their cost savings "per kilogram". Worth looking at.
