Elon: Literally laying out the step by step of Star Trek shit thats happening right now. Audience: not applauding (hopefully) due to complete shock and awe.

Work instead on a meteor/asteroid defense system and the need to move to another planet would cease to exist. It would also be much cheaper and easier.

Hi future people, if you are reading this after Space X landed Start ship on Mars, then congratulation. as of today (17.Jun.2020) they are still trying to build Starship prototypes, they failed a lot but still trying to learn from the failures to improve future prototypes.

"A lot more is possible than u really think. U have to b very careful telling him that something is impossible that will be limited by the law of physics or u will end up looking stupid" Mark Hodak (Neuralink) on Elon Musk

Just imagine... We are living in the age when humanity is going to colonize another planet. For the first time after thousands of years. It drives me crazy.

Ok to sent a rocket to iss no big deal but to go on mars? I dont want to be negativ but its very hard mission and people who go there have to count on maybe they wont comme back. I think next 50 years it will happend for sure but not now in 2025 like I think.

I think it’s better to use mars and moon as dump yard .. we can dispose all our wastes.. rather than spending billions to make people stay there..

26:40 The brilliant quote "and often I'll be told 'but you could get more payload if you made it expendable'. I said 'yes, but you could also get more payload from an aircraft if you got rid of the landing gear and the flaps... and just parachuted out when you got to your destination." The second amazing bit is 25:30 when he compares *buying* a single engine turboprop plane (which is like current single-use rockets) to *chartering* a 747 plane (which is like having a fully reusable BFR). It's just a brilliant demonstration of the massive cost difference between single-use and reusable.

The launch cost chart at 25:36 is interesting, but does it account for the size of the payload of the rocket? Put another way, a small rocket might cost less than a big rocket, but if the big rocket delivers more payload, maybe that's better?

Musk has the innocence of a child with the mind of a genius. He imagines the outcome and plows ahead like a horse with blinders on, dragging the dream right along with him, trampling everything that gets in his way until he gets the job done. Then the seeds grow and multiply.

I have to wonder if he knows something the rest of us don't.. Its a proven fact the sun is getting old and hotter also that if it turns into a red giant earth will be cooked! Mars would be the best hope, did nasa share that with Elon? Elon isn't wasting any time getting there either.

he did not explain how humans would be able to sustain zero gravity for months, normal humans not perfect astronauts... also, how will normal people be able to withstand increased g-forces during ascend??

If we can get enough people on mars and start sustainable bases and then boost the population, then we might be able to save the human race. In all seriousness, Elon may be our only hope.
