Billionaire Elon Musk recently gave an interview to Peter Diamandis, founder of the X Prize Foundation. One of the topics of the conversation was the colonization of Mars. SpaceX founder admitted that it will not be an easy task - participation in the mission will have to be paid for with various inconveniences, and some people will probably pay with their lives.
"You might die… and you probably won't have good food and all these things. It's an arduous and dangerous journey where you may not come back alive. (...) I mean, honestly, a bunch of people probably will die in the beginning," Musk stated, while adding that it will be an amazing adventure and a great experience.
