Ilon Mask is determined in the near future to conquer the Red Planet, thereby entering his name forever in world history. Moreover, he is going to personally participate in the expedition. American inventor names specific dates for the implementation of their great tasks. Nathan Eismont, who is a leading researcher at the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, commented on the words of SpaceX, noting the main obstacle in the implementation of such a complex mission.
“Mask’s words are purely his style. The rhetoric of this format contributes to a certain extent to the development of its business, but there is one more favorable moment in this. Such statements make us not forget all of us that the dream of mankind to fly to Mars is still alive. But in 10 or even 20 years the long-awaited flight is unlikely to come true. There are a number of difficulties that even Musk is not yet able to cope with, ”said Nathan Eismont.
According to the expert, many colleagues agree with him, the main obstacle lies in the monstrous cosmic radiation, of which there is no reliable protection from yet. Before a long-distance expedition to Mars, you need to be as confident as possible that the astronauts will safely reach the desired point and return to their home planet.
