Elon Musk Says There is a Good Chance He'll Die on Mars

In a recent interview, SpaceX founder and eccentric billionaire Elon Musk said that there is a high probability he will be one of the brave pioneers to colonize Mars – and die there.

The 47-year-old entrepreneur told Axios on HBO that there is a 70 percent chance he will personally use a SpaceX rocket to fly to Mars. And he’s not just planning a visit to the Red Planet, whose surface temperature averages at -80 degrees C (-112 F), he plans to move there. Musk gave the figure without missing a beat, confident despite the fact that his company has yet to launch a manned space flight, let alone a 250mn mile journey with as-of-yet undeveloped colonization equipment.

This is not some long-term plan contingent on certain breakthroughs, according to Musk, but a very real possibility that will happen within our lifetime for the ticket price of “a couple hundred thousand dollars.”
