Elon Musk Clubhouse: Talks about what will happen when humans move to Mars

Elon Musk Clubhouse: Talks about what will happen when humans move to Mars

During an Exclusive talk audio, Elon Musk Clubhouse, SpaceX and Tesla CEO appeared during the talk show over his dream of landing humans on Mars.

While he discussed his Twitter meme-ing and detailed some of the progress his team at Neuralink has made, Musk stated that he will take humans to the red planet.

When the hosts Sriram Krishnan and Aarthi Ramamurthy asked Elon Musk on the timeline to get humans on Mars he replied saying, “Five and a half years,”

Elon Musk has been known to put overly ambitious deadlines on his projects, from Tesla to SpaceX, but five-and-a-half years to get Starship off the ground and taking humans to another planet? That a whole other level of ambition.

According to Elon Musk, he said “The important thing is that we establish Mars as a self sustaining civilization,” he said.

He was asked if he believed in Aliens, he said there wasn’t a single piece of conclusive evidence for the existence of aliens, although it’s “quite possible” there is such a thing as Alien tech, at least at a “7/11” level, and a joked that they evidence so far suggests they might be at the “500 Megapixel camera” or “at least iPhone 6 level”.

MONKEY BRAIN

After Mars, Elon Musk got applause for his meme abilities, which he partly attributed to “meme dealers,” before a swerve to something a little more serious: Neuralink, the brain-implant startup he founded in 2016.

The last update, which came in August 2020, showed a “Fitbit-like” implant “working” in pigs, but we haven’t heard too much since — and there’s been no scientific papers published in the meantime. Musk said there would new videos showing progress would be released in a month or so.

“We have a monkey with a wireless implant in their skull who can play video games using his mind,” Musk said. Of course, there’s no evidence for this and it’s the second time we’ve heard Musk discuss it. “Can we have the monkeys play mind Pong with each other?” he mused.

Elon Musk pulled made it clear these were long-term goals for the brain-implant device.

The initial research focuses on how it might help those who have suffered brain and spine injuries.

“I want to be clear.” Musk said, “the early applications will really just be for people who have a serious brain injury, like, where, it’s like the value of the implant is just enormous.”
