Asked how likely it would have been that Mars had flown to Axis in the HBO chain where he was a guest, Musk replied with confidence: "70%." "I know exactly what to do, I'm talking about the movement there," said the businessman.
The billionaire said his flight could take about seven years, when the ticket price to Mars would be "about two hundred thousand dollars."
Meanwhile, Musk rejected the journalist's objection that, for the rich, a trip to Mars could be considered a sort of escape from the problems on this planet.
"No, because the probability of dying on Mars is much higher than on Earth," he said, explaining that there is a great threat to human life when traveling through so-called "deep space."
In addition, Space X founder added that even if you manage to land on the red planet, "you have to build the base."
"There are many people climbing mountains, people die on Mount Everest all the time, he likes to do it because of the challenge," Musk explained in comparison.
