Elon Musk, the founder of TESLA and SpaceX, has been working for a long time to get humans to Mars.
Now he tells us how long humans can set foot on Earth’s neighboring red planet.
Well, at first they wanted to take humans to Mars by 2024, but now they’ve stepped up and said that this could happen by the end of this decade.
In 2016, the founder of SpaceX announced plans to build a city on Mars and hoped that the manned mission would reach the Red Planet by 2024.
Since then, the company has made significant progress in building the Mars rocket, but not enough to meet the 2024 target.
In a tweet, Elon Musk said that he thinks 2029 is the closest year that humans could take the first step on Mars.

That is, 60 years will be completed this year when humans first set foot on the moon.
Earlier, in December 2020, Elon Musk had vowed to send humans to Mars by 2026.
SpaceX has designed a starship to take NASA astronauts to the moon and then to Mars, which has just completed some test flights but has not yet been sent into space.
Elon Musk has also complained that federal launch regulations have slowed the process of reaching Merck.
By the way, know that it takes a lot of planning to go to Mars because our neighboring planet revolves around the sun along with the earth, during which they sometimes come closer to each other and sometimes farther away.
With that in mind, planning missions on specific days is required.
That is why Elon Musk first gave the date 2024, 2026, and then 2029.
In 2018, Elon Musk said that if you plan to go to Mars, think that the chances of dying there are much higher than on Earth.
“The chances of death on Mars are much higher than on Earth,” he said in an interview.
Elon Musk said that when you travel in space, the chances of death will increase, even if you travel to Mars safely, people will have to work non-stop to build a residential base there.
And severe weather conditions on the red planet can also increase the risk of early death.
However, Elon Musk said: “There are a lot of people out there who climb the peaks. People die all the time on Mount Everest, but they like challenges.”
The founder of SpaceX believed that there was a 70% chance that he would leave Earth and move to Mars.
