Elon Musk: Mars test flights in 2019

'More dangerous than nukes': Elon Musk still firm on regulatory oversight of AI

It's easy to be skeptical about the early 2019 target, and not just because of Musk's historically overambitious schedules. It learned by playing itself and can play basically any game after it's fed the rules.

About an hour into the presentation, a third chair was brought on stage and Kimbal Musk, Elon's brother and an entrepreneur in the food-access space, joined in - wearing a cowboy hat and with a guitar in tow.

"The rate of improvement is really dramatic, but we have to figure out some way to ensure that the advent of digital super intelligence is one which is symbiotic with humanity".

He cautioned that the first people to head to Mars would face situations "far more dangerous" than past settlement efforts, with a "good chance you'll die". "It kind of reads like (Ernest) Shackleton's ad for Antarctic explorers: hard, dangerous, good chance you'll die".

When the first Falcon Heavy launch has happened, the rocket was the most powerful one that has ever been launched. And while it won't be capable of getting anyone to Mars just yet, he said it would be able to do short up and down flights and have a liftoff thrust twice that of a Saturn 5, the NASA rocket at the heart of the Apollo program.

"I think that's the best outcome - I hope so, if anyone's got better ideas, I'd love to hear it". They depicted the preparations for the launch, reaction and jubilation of the audience, the launch of a rocket into space and video footage of flying in space auto the Tesla Roadster with a dummy behind the wheel.

"I think it's unlikely that we'll never have a world war again", he said.

"But life can not just be about solving one miserable thing after another", he added.
