Elon Musk's Plans To Take Futuristic Noah's Ark To Mars ( Pics) by Gospelpreacher1: 9:14pm On Dec 14, 2021
Noah's Ark : Musk told the magazine he intended on taking 'a futuristic Noah's Ark' to Mars

Elon Musk's plan to take a 'futuristic Noah's Ark' to Mars has been ridiculed by scientists who say the claim is little more than 'a brilliant sound bite' and the reality is centuries off and would be incredibly difficult to achieve.

Musk, 50, told Time magazine on Monday that he had big plans for the next phase of space exploration after SpaceX's Starship rockets land on Mars within the next five years.

'The next really big thing is to build a self-sustaining city on Mars and bring the animals and creatures of Earth there,' he said.

'Sort of like a futuristic Noah's ark. We'll bring more than two, though - it's a little weird if there's only two.'

Musk has repeatedly said that he hopes to help humans colonize Mars as Earth's resources dwindle and climate change gets worse.

'The goal overall has been to make life multi-planetary and enable humanity to become a spacefaring civilization,' Musk said in the Time interview, where he explained he's bring animals and plants to the Red Planet.


But experts remain skeptical and were quick to point out the huge challenges in raising livestock on a planet without oxygen.

Others said the plan was hundreds of years away from fruition.

Roger Wiens, a scientist based at Los Alamos in New Mexico, who is currently leading the SuperCam laser instrument on the Perseverance rover on Mars, told DailyMail.com the idea was 'a brilliant sound bite.'

'Mars, with its CO2 atmosphere, might be a good place to grow plants if they are kept warm and watered, but it would be a terrible place to drop off animals, who need oxygen to breathe,' he said.

'Humans might be smart enough to don oxygen breathing systems, but would an animal be smart enough to adjust such a system if it was falling off its face? I don't think so. We would end up with a lot of dead animals. Let's try botanical gardens first.'

Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, was equally skeptical.

He told DailyMail.com it would likely take 'multiple centuries' until man was able to raise animals on Mars.

The World is Scared and Baffled by the Disaters and Calamities rocking the earth.

Man, in his limited knowledge is now looking for a place of Safety like a sort of " Noah ark"

The "Noah's ark" of today is the LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS Christ. HE alone is the Only means and way to be Saved from the Calamities and Disaters that is set to rain down on the Earth.

Mr. Musk, there is no safety in Mars, Jupiter, Europe, Asia, America etc. The Noah's ark of today is JESUS Christ. Come in quickly because the Door is about to be Shut.

Sigh! Another ridiculous talk!!
Noah's ark used in this context is not literally a similar model of the one Noah from the bible used; Elon simply used 'Noah's ark' as a descriptive phrase in a figurative context to say he plans to make humans, plants and animals exist on Mars. He is not saying he is running to planet mars to escape any sorts of destruction that God wants to bring on planet earth!
You shouldn't even be the one dissing Elon Musk or acting like you're smarter/better than him. Elon's limitless ideas have all been based on the advancement of Humanity. Elon's contributions to renewable energy alone has saved millions of lives. Elon has launched rockets to space, but the only thing you pastors keep launching is offering box and new ways to collect money. Elon has come up with ideas that changed humanity, but the only thing that you pastors have come up with is different types of holy water.

flamingREED:

He actually did say he wants to escape the calamity about to befall earth. Musk did express dissatisfaction about Earth's depleting resources.
True! There's so many things going wrong with our Planet. Who no go want commot before?
Global warming alone is a huge problem, especially for a continent like Africa with a very hot climate.
Elon musk is building cars that use electricity, so we wouldn't have to use fuel that causes smoke which affects the ozone layer, affects human health and also contributes to the depletion of the earth.
Elon musk is heavily invested in solar energy, and he and his company have provided solar power to millions of people. Instead of someone like Oga righteousness to appreciate Elon; he will rather switch on his generator after drawing it like 12 times (same generator will emit smoke that will also contribute to depleting the ozone layer and planet earth) to come online to criticize people like Elon.

Humans are not limited in their ability to acquire knowledge.

If we humans obey the command to ask and knock and seek with all our hearts and souls and minds and beings and all our numerous other senses, greater things than these will we humans do.

Lol, na so we see am. All he does is copy and paste scientific threads that he does not even understand, rather than letting those that understand to contribute and discuss; he'll instead use his other moniker to condemn it and relate it to end time. Even fellow Christians are tired of his ridiculous style of preaching. So mentally exhausting!
It's like we need people that worship sango, obatala, Ogun, amadioha, Ifa, etc to come to Nairaland and also start flooding threads with their own beliefs

You make mockery of the Most High and you think you will not be punished.

If you like go to Pluto, you will still be cast down.

Obadiah 1:4
[4]Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith YAHUAH

Isaiah 14:13-15
[13]For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
[14]I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
[15]Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.

Dear Elon Musk,

If you ever get to see this, I mean this wholeheartedly. I can volunteer to leave this planet forever to be part of a pioneering movement, 95% because I love science, 5% because Nigeria don show me shege. Also, as delicious as this planet is, as long as women with big yansh from Africa and South America are there with me on Mars, I can abandon it and volunteer my testicles to populate mars with sexy nerds as my extraterrestrial offspring. Genghis Khan ain't got nothing on me.

Modified.
The big yansh comes with big brains too. No be yansh wey love camera pass her future.

Sometimes you don't need to bring Religion into everything because you might sound stu.pid at the end..

Let Science do their stuff and when it's time for religion we will face it.. Anytime you find a post you must try to find a fault and add that your religion stuff.. Abeg zukwanu ike
