Elon Musk wants to build a self-sufficient city on Mars before 'cataclysmic event' takes place on Earth (!)
Elon Musk has revealed plans to create a city on Mars that is entirely self-sufficient and not dependent on links to Earth for its survival.
He said projects to develop a Martian settlement were already underway but need to be complete before a cataclysmic event takes place on Earth.
He said such an eventuality could occur from a number of potential scenarios, giving examples of a comet hitting the Earth, a supervolcano erupting or even “nuclear Armageddon” on Earth.

Re: Elon Musk wants to build a self-sufficient city on Mars before 'cataclysmic event' takes place on Earth (!)
these, supposedly, were US Gov plans on surviving the pole shift, according to ZetaTalk:

Alternative 1 was about surviving the cataclysms in Deep Underground Bunkers, which were built under the pretext of nuclear threat during the Cold War years

Alternative 2 was about reducing the Earth's population by the spread of deadly diseases, possibly starting a pandemic, that would eliminate all those who will not be desired workforce - the old, weak, chronically sick etc. ( --> Ebola, AIDS, SARS, COVID-19)

Alternative 3 was the space program; it included 'Star Wars', where they considered nuking the passing planet to destroy it or to change its orbit and/or setting colonies on other planets for the elite to escape the cataclysm there, leaving most of humanity behind

Maybe he should go ahead and build the Starship Enterprise, a self-sufficient, self-contained space ship that can travel from one planet to the next in a never-ending quest of exploration of the unknown.

Mars is kind of a has-been. The people (more then one) who I've personally know who went there (true story) weren't all that impressed.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

Elon Mush is a lying dickhead, and anyone who pays the slightest bit of attention to his ravings needs their head examined!

From Wikipedia...

"The atmosphere of Mars is the layer of gases surrounding Mars. It is primarily composed of carbon dioxide (95.32%), molecular nitrogen (2.6%) and argon (1.9%).[2] It also contains trace levels of water vapor, oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen and other noble gases.[2][4][1] The atmosphere of Mars is much thinner than Earth's. The surface pressure is only about 610 pascals (0.088 psi) which is less than 1% of the Earth's value.[1] The currently thin Martian atmosphere prohibits the existence of liquid water at the surface of Mars, but many studies suggest that the Martian atmosphere was much thicker in the past.[3] The highest atmospheric density on Mars is equal to the density found 35 km above the Earth's surface."

Believing we're going to colonise Mars is exactly the same magical thinking as the mediaeval alchemists' search for the Philosopher's Stone.

Yea? You should read the Red Mars series by mister Kim Stanley Robinson.. an excellent technological novel about colonizing mars!

Also.. your wikipedia information is no longer quite accurate:

Two years ago, planetary scientists reported the discovery of a large saltwater lake under the ice at Mars’s south pole, a finding that was met with excitement and some scepticism. Now, researchers have confirmed the presence of that lake — and found three more.

Not that it will matter if the Chinese claim Mars first! A new space race is on but none of us in the West seem to care anymore lol:

A Chinese mission that is on its way to Mars might offer one way to check the claims. The Tianwen-1 mission will enter orbit in February 2021, and as well as deploying a rover onto the surface, the orbiter will carry a suite of scientific instruments.

So, you're justifying your insanity based on a Nebula Award winning novel?

Saltwater lakes under the ice at the south pole aren't at the surface, are they?

Salvation was about this.


"Darius Tanz,[9] a billionaire scientist who is the founder and CEO of Tanz Industries and a pivotal player in the United States' defense against the impending asteroid."

s01e04 The Human Strain

"Following the failed launch attempt to destroy the asteroid, Darius goes missing. The DoD raids his office building. He is later found at an airport and is arrested on suspicion of high treason. Jillian is tasked with assisting a team in a search to find the "perfect 160 people" needed in an attempt to colonize the planet Mars, which proves difficult. Malcolm attempts to rebuild the destroyed electromagnetic drive. In an interrogation room, Darius leaves Grace a clue which leads her and Liam to a compound found in the middle of the woods. In the compound they find a rocket ship named "Salvation", along with the missing uranium. In the back of an arcade game, Liam finds a motherboard, which when turned on connects the server to NASA. Liam disconnects the server and NASA regains control of the probe, proving Darius' innocence. However, with the probe traveling too close to Jupiter, it's lost due to gravitational pull. It is later revealed that Lazlow, Darius' Head of Security, was the one who performed the hack. Upon arriving to arrest him, he is found to have committed suicide. Meanwhile, Liam and Malcolm manage to get the electromagnetic drive prototype operational."

THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE SINGLE MOST RETARDED THING THIS GUY HAS EVER SAID.

LOOK AT MARS AND LOOK AT EARTH.

WHICH OF THE TWO WOULD YOU PICK FOR LONG TERM SURVIVAL?

WHAT IT WOULD TAKE TO MAKE MARS INHABITABLE- INCLUDING THE COST OF FERRYING PEOPLE AND SUPPLIES TO AN INHOSPITABLE PLANET WITHOUT AN ATMOSPHERE 55 MILLION MILES AWAY- IS SO FAR BEYOND REALITY IT ISN'T WORTH HAVING A DISCUSSION.

BUT SOME CHUBBY FACED CELEBRITY FUCKER SAYS IT, THEY RUN WITH THE STORY.
