The South African-born billionaire businessman and engineer Elon Musk is one of the world’s leading innovators in space travel. His company SpaceX works on the creation of low-cost and energy-efficient spacecraft. It’s possible that those spacecrafts will bring the first humans to Mars in the following decade. If SpaceX succeeds in its pioneering mission, the name “Elon” will undoubtedly become forever associated with Mars.

To get to Mars, aiming for a cost of around $200,000 per person, Musk said, would require four main technologies: reusable rockets, in-orbit refueling of spaceships, Mars-based propellant production, and the right propellant.

The reusable rocket could return to earth in about 20 minutes, and it would take off three to five times to fill the tanks of the Mars-bound spaceship in orbit. Once flights started—and he’s envisioning fleets of ships headed out—each could have at least hundred people on it and eventually 200 or more.

He estimated that it would take 40 to 100 years to create a fully self-sustaining city on Mars, and that ultimately, trips to Mars could take as little as 30 days.

In 1952, Wernher von Braun wrote a book called The Mars Project which imagined that civilization on Mars would be led by a person called “Elon.”

According to a post in The Daily Grail, the former Nazi and NASA rocket engineer wrote a novel about a massive 1980s project to colonize Mars which discovered that Mars was already inhabited by an advanced civilization and the leader of the Martian government was given the title: Elon.

In the book, during a 1980s project to colonize Mars, the characters discover that the planet was already inhabited by an advanced civilization.

The Martian government was ruled by a group of ten men with an elected leader having the title “Elon.” In the present day, investor, engineer, and inventor, Elon Musk is the CEO of the company SpaceX which seeks to make human colonization of Mars possible.
