It's a pretty slow news day so here's some fresh Elon Musk news. In an interview with HBO's new Axios program, Musk said there's a 70 percent chance he'll personally travel to Mars. Musk acknowledged there are still a lot of difficulties, and noted there's a good chance of death. Still, he believes Mars holds a lot of appeal.
“You might land successfully, and once you land successfully, you’ll be working non-stop to build the base,” he suggested. “So, you know, 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.”

Still, Musk said that advancements in technology may allow for a flight to Mars within as soon as seven years, with a ticket price of “around a couple of hundred thousand dollars.”

And despite the risks, Musk asserted that he would go without hesitation.
