Elon Musk, founder and CEO of SpaceX, estimates that the first humans will not reach Mars for seven years, in 2029.
The prediction was made by Musk, on the social network Twitter, in response to a question posed by another Internet user. The businessman’s answer was simple: “2029”.
For several years, Elon Musk has displayed his desire to colonize the “red planet”, plans delayed for various reasons. In 2016, the businessman said that the human species will land on Mars in 2025. In 2020, he was talking about 2026. Now the forecast is delayed for a few more years.
