And for what, to say SpaceX was first? Without an imminent threat to our existence, what’s the rush? Perhaps Musk has some secret technology that’ll protect Starship and its inhabitants from the space radiation.[?] But it seems unlikely, given the necessity for peer review in such endeavors. Four years seems like a ridiculously short time frame to send humans on an interplanetary mission. And radiation isn’t the only problem to solve before we embark. Our current technology makes his plan look like nothing more than a suicide mission, and that doesn’t help us spread our consciousness. Funny article began with the opening line, "Musk is a cancer" in reference to his astrological birth date.
