It was just a few years back when I realised how difficult travelling to Mars and surviving there could possibly be; thanks to Ridley Scott, Director of the Hollywood flick The Martian. The movie was largely based on science fiction and may be far from reality, until unless something has changed drastically in the last 3 years; Or, wait, probably it has!

Elon Musk has just revealed how much a ticket to Mars could cost if a person decides to migrate to the Red Planet. Undoubtedly, there is no one better than Elon who could be closer to reality when it comes to travelling to Mars. All credit goes to his other venture – besides Tesla – SpaceX.

But, before you get excited and may reach your credit card to book a ticket to Mars, it’s important to enlighten yourself with some hard reality as well.

Ticket To Mars: Elon Could Be The First One To Book

In 2016, when Elon Musk first revealed his plan to have colonies on Mars, there were very few takers. Experts at NASA has also ruled out any possibility of having making Mars habitat for humans anytime in the next decade or so.

Giving def ears to all his critics, Elon once again reiterated his plan of colonizing Mars in 2017. He revealed how exactly life on Mars could possibly be. Besides, he also outlines numerous reasons and advantages people could enjoy just by moving to Mars.

“Given that Mars would have a labour shortage for a long time, jobs would not be in short supply,” Musk pointed out.

In November last year, Musk surprised the world by revealing that his company SpaceX has made a lot of advancements in the last couple of years, and there is 70% chance that he may head to Red Planet – as Mars is famously addressed – himself by 2028.

“We’ve recently made a number of breakthroughs that I am just really fired up about,” Musk said, who added he’s considering moving to there.

Since then Musk made people curious about travelling to Mars. Now, in his recent tweet, Musk has revealed that ticket to Mars could possibly cost people less than $500,000. However, he also added that it could be much lesser as well, quite considerable for people to sell their house on Earth and move to Mars.

For many, it’s difficult to challenge his claim as there are very few ones who have been working on Mars-bound mission for such a long time, barring NASA.

Indeed $100,000 or $500,000 for a ticket to migrate to another planet is not something that most of the people on Earth could easily afford to. On the other hand, the exorbitant price is very much under the reach of millions of rich people who may think of migrating if there are enough confidence and guarantee of quality of life on Mars.

If you are among the ones who are highly influenced by Musk’s vision and have a strong belief in his thought processes, you must also pay attention to one of his statement he made revealing the dark side of living on Mars. Musk left many shocked and stunned when he revealed that the probability of people dying on Mars is much higher than Earth.

At this stage, anything and everything looks possible and equally impossible. We are in the era of wireless communication and robotics – which were appearing distant dreams just a decade ago.
