Whether it’s The Boring Company, SpaceX, Tesla, Elon Musk is undeniably one of the biggest & brightest minds of our generation.

With the aim to build a large colony on Mars over the next decade, his passion for putting the human species on another planet is something truly incredible.

It’s no secret that we have a constantly increasing population on planet Earth. By the end of the century, it’s predicted that we will have over 10 billion people in the world. Therefore, natural resources are undoubtedly dwindling.
