Wait a minute, can humans really survive the trip to Mars?CNET's Claire Reilly talks you through your chances of surviving Elon Musk's expedition to Mars (TL,DR: It doesn't look great).
Elon Musk and SpaceX wanna start sending people to Mars. Can we talk about how they're all going to die? [MUSIC] SpaceX loves rockets but it hasn't actually sent anyone to space yet. Still, Musk wants to start sending humans to Mars by 2024. Humans who are essentially walking meat bags who love breathing oxygen and who love not being radiated. So Mars is an excellent choice. SpaceX wants to send its first cargo mission to Mars in 2022 before sending human sacrifice, crew two years later. To get there, they're gonna use a big freaking rocket, but it's cheaper than a regular rocket cuz it's reusable. So you're going to spend $200,000 on a ticket to mars just so you can fish someone else's peanuts out of your seat cushion. 6 months later you're on Mars, if you haven't succumb to cancer from months of space radiation on route. If you survive the landing, and anyone recon's you won't, you'll get to start setting up fueling stations on arid planet where temperatures drop to -180 degrees. and the only water is frozen underground. Still, Musk says he will melt that ice my nuking Mars first. You've got a ticket to Mars! Next minute you're working on a radio active gas station 34 million miles from earth. The future is awesome. I'm Claire Reilly for CNet and I'm keeping my meat bag safe here on planet earth.
