The billionaire entrepreneur and founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk, has surprised the world by launching himself into orbit on board one of his own rockets. Musk said that he decided to take this bold step because he was bored of living on Earth and wanted to explore the final frontier.
Musk announced his plan on Twitter, where he posted a selfie of himself wearing a spacesuit and holding a sign that read “Bye Earth”. He also wrote that he had no intention of returning to the planet, and that he would use his Starlink satellites to communicate with his followers and fans. He added that he had left his Tesla car and his dogecoin wallet to his girlfriend, the singer Grimes.
Musk’s launch was not authorized by any space agency or government, and caused a lot of confusion and concern among the authorities and the public. Some praised him for his courage and vision, while others criticized him for his recklessness and egoism. Some also speculated that he might have a secret agenda or a hidden motive for leaving Earth.
Musk’s rocket, which was named Starship SN20, reached orbit successfully and deployed a small capsule with Musk inside. The capsule has a window, a camera, a microphone, and a speaker, which allow Musk to see, hear, and talk to the outside world. Musk said that he planned to orbit the Earth for a few days, and then head to Mars, where he hoped to establish a colony.
Musk’s departure from Earth has left many questions unanswered, such as what will happen to his companies, his projects, and his family. It is also unclear how he will survive in space, and what challenges he will face on his journey to Mars. Some experts doubt that he will be able to reach the red planet, or that he will be able to live there.
