If the report between Elon Musk and the conquest of space goes back to yesterday, the head of SpaceX believes that man will be able to colonize Mars within 20 years. He confirms that the city thus created will be completely autonomous, and that a new civilization will thus be able to thrive on the planet, located 54.6 million km from Earth.
Elon Musk evoked it a few months ago: within ten years humanity will fly away to Mars. The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX still firmly believes in it and even explains ita civilization will be established within twenty years which will pass after the arrival of man on the red planet.
Recently, Elon Musk explained that the population of the red planet should grow very quickly. “20 or 30 years after the first human landing and according to an exponential growth in the number of launches, this assumes the deployment of 100,000 people with each launch and approx. 1 million people in total.”

Elon Musk wants to colonize Mars and build a self-sufficient city
The Tesla Owners Silicon Valley group (which doesn’t belong to the company, it’s simply a “club of enthusiasts”) sent out a tweet this Sunday, August 14, 2022, outlining Elon Musk’s space conquest project. In one of the two photos adorning the tweet, which dates from 2002, we see the billionaire entrepreneur dancing and playing maracas, surrounded by a few employees and musicians. In the second image, 20 years later, another image shows the launch of a SpaceX rocket.
The group of fans then ask about the progress of the project. To which Elon Musk replies: “I hope there will be a self-sufficient city on Mars within 20 years!“. If Elon Musk recently estimated that man could fly to Mars within 10 years, and that 20 or 30 years would be enough for him to colonize the planet, it seems that he is now shortening the deadlines.
Elon Musk, who firmly believes in his project, continues to speak very regularly about expeditions to the red planet. Thus, the richest man on the planet also tweeted a picture where we see a construction site and a gigantic device. Elon Musk explains that “it will be on Mars one day”.
