Still, Musk admitted the first humans to dare make the trip will be risking a lot.
"Obviously, we've got a lot of problems on this planet, but one of the attractive things about space flight is that it's all of us working together". Perhaps not surprisingly, it was put together by Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan of HBO's Westworld. "There needs to be things that inspire you, that make you glad to wake up in the morning and be part of humanity", Musk addressed the Austin, Texas crowd. He made a two-day stop at SXSW to talk about his work.
It was certainly not how anyone would have possibly guessed that the panel on "Westworld" would have ended, but like the show itself, it was a panel filled with unexpected plot twists. Instead, and perhaps even more appropriately, it's the sweeping "Life on Mars", from 1971's Hunky Dory.
"Mars will need everything from iron foundries to pizza joints to nightclubs". He had to borrow money from friends to keep going. In addition, the video shows the moment of the collapse of the Central accelerator of the first stage of the carrier rocket Falcon Heavy, which failed to land on the floating platform, collapsed into the waters of the Atlantic ocean at speeds exceeding 480 kilometers per hour and crashed.

The big focus right now, thought, is just building the spaceship - code named the BFR.
There's also the topic of artificial intelligence.
"AI scares the hell out of me", he said, telling Nolan that while he's not typically a fan of regulation, he feels AI is more risky than nuclear weapons and it's not like we let just anyone build nukes.
Whether an AI-induced third World War is what drives us off the planet, he didn't say.
