Everybody has been extremely interested in what Elon Musk’s next prediction will be. The most recent one that makes the subject of this article has to do with one of his biggest ambitions: sending the first humans to Mars. 

NASA and SpaceX are generally pretty optimistic when it comes to humanity’s potential to land a crewed mission to the Red Planet. Some astronomers even see the hypothetical mission as a crucial one for the future of mankind. Once again, Elon Musk brings a prediction for when he thinks humans will land on Mars.

We must wait 20-30 years more for the first astronauts to land on Mars

According to FOXBusiness, the famous billionaire Elon Musk says that a Mars human landing is 20 to 30 years away. And who are we to contradict him?

User @PPathole asked Musk via Twitter about what the billionaire believes is the estimated timeframe to develop a civilization on Mars that can sustain itself. The user asked as FOXBusiness quotes:

20 years? Self-sustaining meaning not relying/[dependent] on Earth for supplies.

SpaceX CEO replied, as the same source quotes:

20 to 30 years from first human landing if launch rate growth is exponential,

Assumes transferring ~100k each rendezvous and ~1M total people needed.

Elon Musk brought plenty of interesting predictions in the past regarding science. We can remember, for instance, when the SpaceX CEO said that Neuralink might cure Tinnitus one day. For those unaware, Tinnitus is a condition that can be described as a persistent sound of low volume that everybody has, usually when there’s no other sound manifesting. When that low sound becomes too loud, that’s when Tinnitus becomes a problem. In other words, everybody has a level of Tinnitus.

Elon Musk even considered the possibility of creating sex robots, igniting the imagination of many once again.
