Re: Spacex CEO wants to co-build and fund huge Mars colony effort
Old news. We've known all along that Musk wanted to get to Mars. And philanthropist? really? He's hoping to charge $500,000 per seat.
Actually you're right, I should have said techno-philanthropist/techno-entrepreneur..the new breed we are seeing who are bypassing the old ways of getting things done, that are accelerating our ideas of what is possible. I would never have suggested that these people didn't want to make any money at all!
It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
