What is the actual cost of doing this? 1 million people... We have 7 billion now.. 1/7000 of our earth dwellers.. How much is the cost? Mars has like some really crazy stuff to ensure the survival of human kind? I am too dumb to understand..

By then I bet they'll have built a GIANT space only cargo ship and only have to use starships like loading a truck, then the truck takes everyone and supplies to mars and their starships unload.

Big hope for The Musk. He puts forth a really desirable, but a pretty crazy idea, generates mass hype, and for the most part, delivers. He's a catalyst, much like both world wars were. Even if Musk fails to put 1 million people on Mars by 2050, he'll certainly put humanity on the path halfway to anywhere.

I think mars could be a successful colony with 1000+ people by 2050, with 12-16 people per passenger starship. That’s still a lot of starships but they have already built a factory for them and price/speed of production has been taken into account for every part of its design

a few things you havent considered here. one is that the startships will fly back so that will need to be factored into your calculations. second is the earth mars transfer orbit only occurs every 2 years sure and that is the best time to send people due to the long travel time but there is nothing to stop you from sending cargo when ever you like. it may take a year in some cases but you will not need to wait 2 years. lastly im not sure why you would need 1000+ ships for refueling, they are reusable as well. you could probably do it with a max of 100 depending on how many starships are in orbit at any one time. i dont think they will make it to 100 million people by 2050 but jsut throwing out some thoughts.

Elon is stupidly optimistic as usual. My bet would be a permanent Moon base by 2040 and first humans on Mars by 2050, with a permanent base soon afterwards. But I am certain the whole population of Mars will stay below 1000 until the end of this century. There is just not that much reason to go there and living there will be absurdly expensive and will rely on ridiculously expensive supplies from Earth for decades. Even if it gets fully self sufficient before 2100, there is not much economic incentive to go there, which means it will always rely on funding from Earth with barely any return of investment.

We will be there. Either 2050 or a bit later. As long as we have someone like Elon who pushes the pace of technology development and working hard. He did a lot, I mean A LOT of things that people never thought were possible. but we are more capable then wie think.

@Paul Veenings Because the moon is much smaller, it has basically no atmosphere, and it's dangerous to build to much on it since how much Earth relies on it. Plus they are planning to build some stuff. Just not much.

I think this video overlooks several important facts, by being too Earth-centric. Trillions in costs isn't a problem if there are trillions in economic gain. We're not going to Mars for a vacation, we're going for business. Mining and industrial production without hurting the sensitive Earth ecology, for example. That also helps a lot when it comes to producing all the rockets, many of them could simply be built on Mars. All that said, I still agree that 1M people on Mars in 2050 seems very unlikely. But I think a lot of people will live there by then.

But, why sent people to Mars when we can stay on our planet? Well, I guess we will die from global warming, and all life with us, but why not focus on our planet more and make it better, stop polluting and cutting trees... That same thing will also happen on Mars, just because we think those type of things are unharmful when they really are.

Because humans can do both. Just because people are trying to establish spaceflight doesn't mean others just abandon Earth. Elon isn't the sole person who can help the planet. Plus it's not sustainable. Eventually resources will run out or overpopulation.

If Musk needs 15,000 space shuttles to put a million people on Mars by 2050 starting 2025, he needs to start building them at a rate of about 20 per week. This is assuming that none of them break down or get lost along the way. It's not including any babies born on Mars.

It would be to assume, that a lot of the first ships would be used themselves as building blocks for a base, not for actually travelling back to earth. Once things have been sort of setup to support human life, then slowly larger and larger groups of humans could be sent. Also mind the human nature: you don't actually need to send 1 million ppl for establishing a 1 million population (albeit I also expect a somewhat higher then usual death-rate at the beginning of things, with the odd spaceship blowing up or otherwise being lost to space; not to mention your regular slip and fall type of death, knocking a helmet off or whatnot) as it wouldn't be just men sent there, but likely also couples - they could procreate in situ.

Ok but why, though? We're just sending them to die, basically. And even if they got there, it's not like they could make Mars livable. They'd be completely dependent on us to survive. It'd be a massive waste of money for no pay-off at all.
