Илон Маск озвучил стоимость билета на Марс (2 фото) Mankind has practically stopped worrying about the technical possibility of flying to Mars, everyone knows that this is possible, and Martian travel is a matter of time. At this time, the most interesting is the price of the issue. Two and a half years ago, in September 2016, during the presentation of the Super Heavy rocket carrier and Starship interplanetary ship, Elon Musk assured that the colonization of the Red Planet could stretch for 40-100 years, while the flight of one person would cost no more than the average price of an American home (at that time it was about 200 thousand dollars). Answering a reader’s question on Twitter on February 11, 2019, Elon Musk brought a new price and approximately estimated the prospects for changing the cost of the flight. The reader asked how much the ticket price could decrease due to the reuse of launch vehicles and ships. What are the estimated costs for tickets to Moon / Mars accounting for reusability? – SPEXcast (@SPEXcast) February 11, 2019 Musk said that the specific price will be largely depend on the volume of traffic. At the same time, he noted that today this price is 500 thousand dollars (a return ticket is provided free of charge). At the same time, with the start of regular transportation to Mars, the price of a ticket for the colonizers can drop to $ 100 thousand. A resident of a developed country will be able to sell their housing and move to Mars.

However, they were always brought to their logical conclusion. The prices and dates provided by the Mask are still approximate estimates. The initial plans of the billionaire enthusiast included sending, until 2022, two cargo ships to Mars, necessary to create the material base for the first colonists, whose arrival is scheduled for 2024.
