A US billionaire and co-founder of PayPal, Elon Musk, has made plans to build a settlement for 80,000 people on Mars
Musk plans to take it a few steps further by building a city for 80,000 space explorers. The new city would use sustainable technology and send people to space on a rocket powered by liquid oxygen and methane. The billionaire’s estate and prominence in the space industry could make his plans feasible, but the California-based engineer has not left behind his personal ideologies: Musk will only allow vegetarians to live in his settlement.
At a cost of $500,000, vegetarians could choose to travel to the faraway settlement, although Musk did not clarify whether payments could be made using PayPal.

With the proper breeding techniques and a ratio of say, ten females to each male, I would guess that they could then work their way to the Earth's Gross National Product within say, twenty years - The women will have to be selected for their sexual characteristics which will have to be of a highly stimulating nature...

Oh, yes, but this is more feasible ...The age of space tourism might be closer than you think. In fact, if you have an extra $1 million lying around, five years from now you could be one of the first off-world adventurers to stay for five days in this orbiting hotel built by Russian company Orbital Technologies .

I was at Hatfield Primary school, Pretoria, South Africa with Elon in 1976/77 (Have a class photo somewhere).
He was a very strange, very introverted little guy and I was one of the few kids who was friends with him...I wonder if he'll remember me and take me with him?
