Elon Musk has been considering sending humans to Mars for a very long time and although no concrete plans have ever been announced, the Tesla CEO keeps talking about the possibilities. The company is already creating spacecraft that will theoretically be able to take people and goods to the moon and beyond and it is the technology that Musk says will be the saving grace for humanity. Musk tweeted on Monday that his space company SpaceX aims to build more than 1,000 spacecraft to carry life to Mars and likened them to the biblical “Noah’s Ark.” Musk went on to say that spacecraft would be “modern Noah’s arks”, capable of saving “life from calamity on Earth”.
“Making life multiplanetary expands the scope and scale of consciousness. It also allows us to safeguard the biosphere, protecting all life as we know it from calamity on Earth,” he tweeted.

“Humanity is the steward of life, because no other species can transport life to Mars. We cannot let them down,” he added.
A user asked him about his future plans regarding the topic to which Musk replied – “Building 1000+ spaceships to carry life to Mars. Basically (very) modern Noah’s Arks.”
Making life multi-planetary expands the scope and scale of consciousness.
It also allows us to safeguard the biosphere, protecting all life as we know it from calamity on Earth.
Humanity is the steward of life, as no other species can transport life to Mars. We cannot let them down.

This has been a constant topic of interest for Musk who has also stated that deep space exploration can actually lead to lower costs for human beings. The Starship has already been deemed an asset by NASA, and a green signal from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) can bring Musk even closer to realizing his dreams.
Meanwhile, Musk has made headlines for his attempted takeover of Twitter and he also said Tesla may have job cuts in the future as he has a ‘super bad feeling’ about the economy. .
