Would you love to go to Mars? Maybe you would like to consider the idea. Elon Musk stated in a conversation with Peter H. Diamandis, founder of XPRIZE, that “a lot of people will probably die” on the first trips to the red planet.

The founder of Tesla and SpaceX explained that traveling to Mars would be dangerous and uncomfortable, also warning that you may not enjoy good food and not return alive. However, he added that it would be a glorious adventure and an incredible experience.

Musk said that the trip is not for everyone, precisely all those who will do it are volunteers, while Diamandis added that despite all the warnings that the tycoon had just made, he had “thousands if not millions of volunteers.”

Faced with that last comment, Elon Musk once again emphasized that they did not force anyone to go and that they were only volunteers.

Musk and Diamandis met with the objective of announcing and explaining the bases of a project related to carbon removal that is funded by Elon Musk through his foundation.
