In a recent interview, SpaceX founder and eccentric billionaire Elon Musk said that there is a high probability he will be one of the brave pioneers to colonize Mars – and die there.
The 47-year-old entrepreneur told Axios on HBO that there is a 70 percent chance he will personally use a SpaceX rocket to fly to Mars. And he’s not just planning a visit to the Red Planet, whose surface temperature averages at -80 degrees C (-112 F), he plans to move there. Musk gave the figure without missing a beat, confident despite the fact that his company has yet to launch a manned space flight, let alone a 250mn mile journey with as-of-yet undeveloped colonization equipment.
==============================
I'd say that Elon should lay off the ganja.

I admire his dream, but I don't take it seriously.

Dream? He sounds delusional. I'd offer a non-professional diagnosis of bipolar syndrome. He was in the manic phase during this interview.
