Elon Musk Says Flights to Mars Will Start in 2019

"This question of reusability is so fundamental to rocketry. We did for you", Elon Musk wrote. The company is still way behind on its production targets.

"I think it's unlikely that we'll never have a world war again", he said. He also predicted a utopian social model for the red planet, akin to the ancient Greek republics, without the slavery.

Yesterday, SpaceX has published on its official YouTube channel a new video which is dramatically reviewing the history of the Falcon Heavy launch, the most powerful rocket that has ever been launched from Earth, at the moment.

He commented that people would "vote directly on issues instead of going through representative government".

"If there's likely to be another Dark Ages, which my guess is that there probably will be at some point. particularly if there is a third world war, then we want to make sure that there's enough of a seed of human civilisation somewhere else to bring civilisation back and perhaps shorten the length of the Dark Ages", Musk said.

"This has been our pattern in the past".

Desmond, suffering from myopia and not seen anything from the back row, sat on one of the seats for whites and refused to leave. Canada's Finance Minister Bill Moreau and Bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz assisted Robson with the unveiling.

Mars will need pizza joints, and one day people will drink at a Mars Bar, he said - congratulating himself on the Dad joke. Yet Musk took his time in Austin to give the audience another wake-up call regarding a threat no amount of climate change measures or anti-war rhetoric can help. In the long-term, the billionaire space entrepreneur whose plans include making human life multi-planetary, intends to make Starlink a communication bridge between Earth and colonized Mars.

"Mark my words: AI is far more unsafe than nukes, by far, so why do we have no regulatory oversight, this is insane".

"I'm not normally an advocate of regulation and oversight", he added. This is extremely important. "There's lots of things that are miserable and kind of get you down".

The short film may have been a different angle for the Westworld team, but they showcased their ability to create an eclectic film portraying the time, effort and process of the Falcon Heavy launch as if we were involved ourselves - and let's face it, we wish we were.

"My point was AI is far more risky than nukes".
