Elon Musk says that it would take about 1000 rockets and 20 years to set up a city on Mars


Elon Reeve Musk is a technology entrepreneur, engineer, and investor. The 48-year entrepreneur holds the citizenship of South Africa, Canada, and the USA. He is the founder of SpaceX and has a net worth of 2370 crores USD.

Now recently he said in a tweet said that it would take us about 1000 rockets and more than 20 years to build a city on Mars. Elon Musk is pretty smart to have calculated such a thing in his mind. He has an IQ of about 155, which is based primarily upon his earlier aptitude tests and applies to the technical information and his ability to use his numbers to make process change unique in the history of a complicated industry. Elon Musk is a beast when it comes to his IQ.

He seems to have a look at the future of the World. The entrepreneur might have something in his mind. He maybe wants to look upon his tweet as a mission. If there were to be a city on Mars then how it would be? People want to know how those things could be possible. It is quite a good reason for the people to think about it because we all know what will be the situation of Earth by the next thirty years. Elon Musk can or could have the capability to give an exact figure of how long it would take to shift everything from Earth to Mars.

In a series of his tweets, Elon Musk threw away a few more figures about how many rockets will have to bring the necessary amount of cargo to properly set up a base in Mars. These are some futuristic talks that need to be discussed upon. Elon Musk also gave an estimated cost that would take to transport from Earth to Mars. He said that it will cost about $2 million to launch SpaceX’s passenger reusable rocket design. Now, here we must say Elon Musk can do anything with the numbers. It is such a strange topic to discuss yet a very effective one.

People could live on Earth itself. We just need to take care of our surroundings and that is all that has to be considered. It does not seem good when big scientists or engineers are talking about shifting the whole planet to others. Elon Musk could spend his time and effort to rather build a better place on Earth than planning to go to Mars with the entire population. After all, it is their job to think and predict the future.

The theory has a little scientific grounding, however. A study published in Nature found there is unlikely to be enough carbon dioxide in Mars icecaps to engineer the desired greenhouse effect and, even if there were, Mars’ atmosphere is constantly leaking into deep space so the gas would gradually disappear.
