A Los Angeles creative agency, Activista, placed a poster in front of SpaceX’s California headquarters, which reads “Mars Sucks.” He criticizes Musk’s plans for colonizing Mars and notes that priority should be given to the earth.
- A creative agency Activista placed a billboard that said, “Mars sucks” outside Space X in California.
- So far, the Starship test flights have witnessed explosions, but Musk says SpaceX plans to make an orbital flight by July.
- A self-sustaining colony on Mars is SpaceX’s vision for the next 50-100 years.
Space X and Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s plans to colonize Mars are not unknown to his followers. In 2016, Musk told a conference that the planned interplanetary transport (ITS) system will be made to carry at least 100 people on Mars in flight. A self-sustaining colony on Mars is SpaceX’s vision for the next 50-100 years. So far, the Starship test flights have witnessed explosions, but Musk says SpaceX plans to make an orbital flight by July. Starships are reusable spacecraft built by the company in South Texas. Earlier this month, Musk wrote on Twitter: “Make life multi-planetary! #Mars.”
Not everyone seems to agree with Musk’s interplanetary plans and would prefer to focus on saving the earth. A Los Angeles creative agency, Activista, placed a poster in front of SpaceX’s California headquarters, which reads “Mars Sucks.” “What doesn’t suck?” Earth. But the way we treat him honestly sucks, ”the company explained on Twitter. “And then you dream of Mars. A hole in hell. A barren, desolate wasteland you can’t put in fast enough. Great, we’re on Mars. Now let’s prioritize the earth. ”
The billboard was placed off the Space X campus before Earth Day, 2021, and expresses disappointment with Musk’s focus on Mars, rather than the restoration of Earth. Musk believes that the Earth will lose its ability to get used to humans due to climate change, asteroids or other calamities, and that humans should be able to survive on Earth. Colonizing Mars will help humans last, according to Musk. “About half of my money is used to help Earth’s problems and half to help establish a self-sufficient city on Mars to ensure the continuation of life (of all species) in case the Earth is hit by a meteor like dinosaurs or WW3 it happens and we destroy ourselves “, he had written on Twitter in 2018.
Musk has also had his share of criticism when it comes to his plans to colonize Mars. Earlier this year, US Senator Bernie Sanders said: “Space travel is an interesting idea, but right now, we need to focus on Earth and create a progressive tax system so that children are not hungry, people are hungry. do not remain homeless and all Americans have medical care. The level of inequality in America is obscene and a threat to our democracy. ” Musk responded to Sanders by saying, “I now have the resources to help transform life on more planets and extend the light of consciousness to the stars.”
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said in a podcast interview that he is not a man on Mars and that he will rather spend his money on vaccines and address “the greatest challenges of humanity” directly. He had also noticed that he was not eager to buy a space ticket. “No, I’m not a person on Mars. I know a lot of people on Mars. I don’t think rockets are the solution. But maybe I’m missing something there,” Gates said.
