Musk, who has just praised China for successfully launching its first Mars exploration mission, has also said he wants to land a human mission on Mars earlier than China, and is expected to have a drink on Mars. On July 23, China successfully launched its first Mars exploration mission, the Tianqiao-1 probe, taking the first step in our planet exploration.
Musk, who has been pursuing Mars migrants, said when asked if China would send humans to Mars earlier than he would, saying, “The game starts!” He also said he would go to Mars in 2026.
After the successful launch of Tianq 1, Zhou Xing, founder of Pandaily, an English-language media outlet that introduces China’s technology industry overseas, mentioned the issue in an e-mail to Musk, who replied, “The game is on!” “。
Musk has said at the International Astronautical Assembly that he plans to send humans to Mars by 2024. His Mars migration program hopes to send 100,000 people to Mars in 40 to 100 years at a low cost of $100,000 per person, creating a self-sufficient Martian city.
However, some experts believe that SpaceX’s plan is too aggressive, living on Mars 225 million kilometers away from Earth, is a huge budget-driven project. NASA’s previous plan was to send the first humans to Mars in the mid-1930s.
But he’s “fully committed to Mars and Earth” and sells his mansion, and he’s full of hot pillows on Mars. On the 23rd, Musk congratulated the launch via Twitter and Weibo, saying, “China successfully launched its first Mars exploration mission, Tianq 1, today, which is very exciting.” “
