On April 28, 2016 Time gobbled up SpaceX lies.
…you should pay attention to the April 27 announcement from Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX, that he intends to launch his first unmanned Mars mission in just two years and will beat NASA’s goal of putting astronauts on the surface in the 2030s by up to a decade.
Pay attention everyone, a know-nothing loud-mouthed CEO rocked straight up to NASA to tell all the scientists and experts he has two thumbs and really knows how to science.
The far-off 2030 NASA timeline was made to look ridiculous by a rich racist white kid holding big dirty bags of ill-gotten money. He said his daddy told him to stomp a go button and make unmanned missions on Mars reality in just two years.
2018 unmanned landing on Mars! Men walking on Mars by 2020!
Believe him because this guy, who hasn’t done anything, can do anything!
SpaceX literally thought thinly disguised fascism would make rockets better and promoted a fantasy multiple times — with minimal or no hesitation — that they alone could put people on Mars earlier than 2025.
Then on September 29, 2017 CNN gobbled up some new SpaceX lies that somehow immediately cast doubt on 2018.
The hard-charging tech mogul said his rocket company, SpaceX, aims to land at least two cargo ships on the Red Planet in 2022 in order to place power, mining and life support systems there for future flights. That’s just five years from now. “That’s not a typo — although it is aspirational,” Musk said Friday…
Hard charging in reverse? Record scratch. 2022?
What happened to our 2018 let alone 2020? Was it all just fraud?
*Me checks calendar for typos. Hmmm, can it really be almost the end of 2023 already? Where are the cargo ships on Mars sent to make democracy look bad?
By 2020… oh, surely by now you get the slick talking big city con man routine.
You’d think there would be serious doubts cast on the SpaceX circus act by 2020 but CNBC eagerly gobbled up more SpaceX lies.
SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said he is “highly confident” that the company will land humans on Mars in “about six years from now. If we get lucky, maybe four years,” Musk said…
That’s what real-world space programs run on, just like clowns and trapeze artists.
No wonder SpaceX told the world they would have people on Mars by 2020, 2024, 2025… with a high confidence that they really, really meant by 2026.
Kids, make sure you study how to get lucky so you can build a rocket out of rotting potatoes and expired ketchup that goes a bazillion miles per hour to safely land 100 people on Mars four years from now. Oh and ask the government (your parents) for millions so you can call it your “business”.
In 2022 Business Insider said SpaceX had some big new circus act with lies and they wanted to help spread the word.
Elon Musk thinks people will land on Mars in 2029.
Step right up! Now, wait just a minute. 2029?
In 2016 SpaceX tried to go after NASA predictions of landing on Mars 2030 as far too slow, studious and bureaucratic for fascism.
How can the original discredited NASA predictions have been so accurately accurate instead of like the growing dumpster fire of SpaceX lies?
Seriously, why didn’t everyone in journalism slap down SpaceX immediately as garbage?
It’s almost like SpaceX will next announce that they were telling the truth the whole time because by 2050 a time machine will be completed that allows them to reach Mars in 2018.
If they’re lucky.
What a business.
spaceflights do trigger grief and sadness… felt like a funeral and all he felt was sadness
On a related note, the same SpaceX guy in 2016 barked at the press he funded creation of the safest cars on the road. Yeah, well, lies. They have turned out to have the lowest quality and be the least safe.
That’s a lot of funerals.
