People's last words stick with us for a long time, memory fades, but the stone doesn't. It is the last opportunity to leave a mark on those who drop by for a visit. Tesla boss Elon Musk has also revealed the words he would want to be written on his gravestone and just to warn the weak-hearted it involves-humour.
The electric car innovator, hoping that his contributions to the automobile industry will remain etched throughout the ages, or however long gravestones last, took to Twitter and expressed his hope that his invention of an alternate the fuel-powered car would be mentioned in his epitaph.
Earlier, Musk said there is a "70 percent" chance he'll go to Mars. There have been a "recent number of breakthroughs" that have made it possible, he said. And as he hinted before, it'd likely be a one-way trip ad he expects to "move there."
“I know exactly what to do,” the billionaire Tesla founder said. “I’m talking about moving there.”
Should he succeed in landing on Mars, he expects to work “nonstop to build the base”. There will, he said, be “not much time for leisure. And even after doing all this, it’s a very harsh environment. So, there’s a good chance you die there. We think you can come back but we’re not sure. Now, does that sound like an escape hatch for rich people?”
“Your probability of dying on Mars is much higher than on Earth,” he said, adding: “It’s gonna be hard. There’s a good chance of death, going in a little can through deep space.”
