Elon Musk and the dream of building an integrated city on Mars.

Elon Musk’s net worth reached $ 195 billion at the end of last Thursday’s trading, an increase of $ 10 billion over Bezos’s. Elon Musk’s fortune increased by more than $ 150 billion during the past 2020, thanks to the high price of Tesla’s share, which rose by 743% in the year 2020. Shares of electric car maker Tesla rose about 8% on Thursday.

In 2018, the tech billionaire who outdid Jeff Bezos last Thursday to become the world's richest person commented on Twitter explaining what he plans to do with his money. “Nearly half of my money goes to help solve problems on Earth and half of it is to help create a self-sufficient city. On Mars to ensure the continuation of life if the Earth is hit by a meteorite or the third world war occurs.

As SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, he has already made significant progress toward sending the first humans to Mars - a goal he claims can be achieved as early as 2024 SpaceX plans to eventually build thousands of Starship vehicles at a rate. 100 vehicles a year for transporting crews and goods around the solar system, with each vehicle carrying up to 100 people. On December 30, Musk tweeted, “Production is difficult, prototypes are easy. Our mission is to build nearly 1,000 spacecraft to create a self-sufficient city. On Mars.
Elon Musk is perhaps the boldest businessman on the planet right now. After helping to revolutionize online payments as the founder of PayPay, Elon Musk now runs three companies: Tesla electric cars, Xspace space exploration and tourism, and Solar City for Solar Energy. In a wonderful interview with Kevin Rose, Musk explains one of the key philosophies that guided him throughout his bold entrepreneurial ventures.
I think it's important to think from first principles rather than an analogy. The natural way in which we conduct our lives is to think about the analogy. When inferring by analogy, we do this because it is like something else that has been done or is similar to what other people are doing.

The first principles are a physical way of looking at the world. You summarize things into the basic facts and say, What are we sure to be true? '... then he concluded from there.
For example, anyone can buy really expensive batteries and this is how they always will be. Historically, they cost $ 600 per kilowatt-hour. It won't be much better than that in the future.
The first principles say, “What are the basic components of batteries? What is the value of these individual components in the market?
The battery contains cobalt, nickel, aluminum, carbon, some polymers for separation, and a leakproof case. Buy these items separately from the London Metal Market. The cost will be $ 80 per kilowatt-hour. So you just need to think of clever ways to take that material and incorporate it into the form of a battery cell and you can have batteries that are much cheaper than anyone realizes.

Despite the strangeness of Elon Musk's ideas, in the beginning, he enjoys a degree of credibility with the public, as is evident. Even when he tweeted a sentence of two words, he used "Signal" about the Signal application against the backdrop of the new privacy conditions for WhatsApp, Signal's shares rose by 1100% in one day and received The application has more than 100 thousand new user
