Elon Musk has announced the date of the landing of man on Mars

Elon Musk used his Twitter account to predict when humans will finally land on Mars.

He responded to a Space Hub post asking him how soon this would happen in the 21st century.

"2029," he wrote in response to a meme that linked the prospect of humans to Mars with the historic landing of humans on the moon during NASA's Apollo missions in 1969.

Earlier, in December 2021, he told the magazineTime that it would be surprised if humans "don't land on Mars within five years." He also spoke in detail about the plans for the development of the Red Planet. For example, build a self-sustaining city that will use solar-powered hydroponic farms. They will support a permanent human settlement at a distance of 55 million km from Earth.

“The next really important task isbuild a self-sufficient city on Mars and relocate animals and terrestrial creatures there,” said the founder of SpaceX in an interview with Time. - It will be something like a futuristic Noah's Ark. But we, of course, will take more than two individuals.

Until then, SpaceX needs to completework on Starship, the next-generation interplanetary spacecraft that made its first successful landing after takeoff in May 2021. As Musk stated on Lex Friedman's podcast, "Starship is the most complex and advanced rocket ever built."
