The CEO of SpaceX, Elon Musk craves to set up a base on Mars and has indicated that the first resident on the planet could be Artificial Intelligence. Commenting on what his thoughts were on the first Martian being an intelligent machine rather than a human, Musk responded 30 percent chance.
As per the news reports that considers how Musk came up with this percentage endures a mystery, though, several folks are wondering what this AI resident could look like. At present, manned Mars missions are completely hypothetical. The firms like SpaceX and scientific entities around the world have been running towards exploring technologies that enable humans to endeavor beyond earth’s moon but it could still take a decade or maybe more than a several decades before that is tried. In November last year, Musk stated that there is a 70 percent chance that he’ll go to Mars, regardless of a good chance of him not surviving either on the way or after landing.
It is barely very plausible that only a few people might be keen to join Musk in this journey, either because of the risk or the cost involved. The United States’ space agency NASA, this year, also firmed up its plans to return humans to the Moon and utilize its lunar experience to plan to send astronauts to Mars in the year 2030.
