Elon Musk says SpaceX will land a rocket on Mars within the next ten years – or sooner.

The billionaire tech entrepreneur recently tweeted that his company would reach Mars “well before 2030” and that Europe was “aiming too low” with its space program.

Musk has long talked about establishing permanent human colonies on both Mars and the Moon. His long-term plan is to send 1 million people to Mars aboard 1,000 SpaceX Starship rockets.

Do you think Musk is telling the truth, or overselling it? Is it even feasible to permanently send humans to Mars?
