An association of men with means co-founded by American businessman Elon Musk, who has been described as the richest man in the world, has announced the launch of a competition to search for the best ideas and programs to build the first perfect city on Mars.
According to the Monte Carlo radio website, today, Monday, the association believes that life on Mars is possible, and that building a city there is not impossible.
Based on this vision, the association says that it will be necessary to build housing and institutions for work, study, and entertainment as well as establish farms and other facilities necessary for life on the surface of Mars (which is known also as the Red Planet).
The association recognizes that life on Mars faces a set of difficulties, such as the difference in the climate from the Earth’s climate, and the lack of good things as is the case on Earth.
The competition, which is the first of its kind in the world, takes into account all the difficulties that exist in the Martian environment, which made it a requirement for the participating projects to include a vision of how to overcome these obstacles.
The projects should also include ways that could be undertaken so that the planet can accommodate about one million people.
The most important condition for the competition, in the winning project, is that it includes ideas that enable the proposed city to provide the highest level of self-sufficiency in resources.
American billionaire and businessman Elon Musk said he was a “aliens”, during a conversation on Twitter with Indian businessman Kunal Shah.
The founder of the “CRED” application, touched upon the issue of Musk’s management of companies operating in different sectors of the business, as he said in a question addressed to the American entrepreneur: “How do you run companies whose value of assets exceeds $ 500 billion at one time? How do you do this?”
Musk, owner of the electric car maker Tesla, joked: “I am an alien,” the Economic Times website reported.
