According to the publication, the plan for rapid colonization of Mars has been canceled. Elon Musk is no longer confident that he will complete the transfer of people to the Red Planet in five years. Before that, he planned to complete the colonization of Mars in a maximum of five years.
"At best, the first landing on Mars would take about five years, at worst ten years," he said. However, Musk does not talk about colonization and refers to a landing or research mission.
He explained that the most important thing in this matter is missile technology.
"We are building a completely new rocket. I mean the Starship - it's the most sophisticated rocket ever created," he said.
SpaceX regularly sends astronauts to the International Space Station, and Starship has already signed a deal with NASA to take the agency astronauts to the moon.
