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.

I agree that you shouldn't think negatively about Elon Musk. Of course, he makes a lot of money, but he also brought a lot of cool things into the world that benefit humanity.

The sole contribution to humanity Musk has ever made is incidentally financing some people with good ideas in his ongoing quest to pad his own ego. He is a bad human being who came out of unearned wealth and privilege on the back of an apartheid state, and has been the showcase example of someone consistently failing upward due to having no positive qualities except a substantial bank balance.
