The number of millionaires worldwide is increasing rapidly.

The 80,000 number is the amount they plan on sending per year according to Musk. The total needed would be in the millions for a colony.

It's not old news when its a co-gov't venture. We see someone who is motivated enough that realistically could make it happen, then people take notice.

At $500K a seat, he's not going to get "millions" on Mars in any reasonable timeframe (less than decades.)
The more common the trips/tech become the more the price will come down.

But not to a level where average people can afford it, at least not within our lifetimes.
Five stars!
