Elon Musk said that tickets to Mars will be able to buy “almost everyone.” At the same time, he names the conditional price of $100,000. And if you do not have such an amount, then you can take a loan.
In a recent interview, Musk was asked about the cost of such a trip. Musk said the price will be driven in part by economics, as well as the need to make travel to Mars affordable enough to attract the nearly a million people needed to build a city on Mars.
If it costs about $100,000 to move to Mars, then I think almost anyone can work and save and end up with $100,000 and be able to go to Mars if they want to. We want to make the price affordable for anyone who wants to go to Mars.
The source suggests that Musk means selling a house and other property for people who are going to fly to Mars and not return. In an interview, Musk mentioned other possible sources of funding, such as government sponsorship or a loan.
In 2020, Musk said he hopes to build 1,000 SpaceX spacecraft over 10 years to send 1 million people to Mars to build a city by 2050. He later stated that the first human would set foot on the surface of Mars in 2029.
