Life in Mars: A courageous dream of Elon Musk

What do you dream of change in the world by the next decade or upcoming thirty years? The answer is variable for most of us. But, the key points remain the same. Most of us will want to develop a career, settle down in life, or go on a world tour. But, very few among us will dream of changing the world for a better tomorrow. Some people, like Elon Musk, will take the notch one grade higher. According to him, we can chase the universe in the next thirty years, so there is no point in holding it back in a city. This man took the first and most challenging step for space exploration and finding a new home.

The idea of Mars colonization

It is no secret that we, the human, destroyed the earth to the core almost. Overuse of natural resources, deforestation, assaulting wildlife, producing more carbon and toxic substances that our ozone layer can detoxify, and such acts of unconsciousness are the reason for disasters we are facing today. Global warming, drought, flood, newer disease breakout, and so many more that we can’t stop counting. According to most environmentalists, the earth is beyond the healing process now. So, it is high time we find another residence outside the earth or slowly wait for extinction.


The space exploration programs found Mars as the closest similar planet to our mother planet. Currently, it is the most suitable place for human colonization. The company that is leading in this process is SpaceX. It is the brainchild of Elon Musk.
