In a 1953 publication, a German scientist predicted that a guy named “Elon” will lead humanity to Mars.
A SCIENTIST predicted that a guy named “Elon” would take humanity to Mars 70 years ago.
Wernher Von Braun’s book The Mars Project seemed to foreshadow billionaire Elon Musk’s rise to power – and his multi-planetary ambitions. In 1953, a German rocket scientist and space architect predicted that Mars’ leader will be named ‘Elon.’
“The most influential book on planning human expeditions to Mars,” according to the nonfiction, scientific work.
In December 2020, while responding to one of Elon Musk’s comments regarding destiny, Twitter user Toby Li raised notice to the strange forecast.
“Speaking of destiny, did you know that Von Braun’s 1953 book ‘Mars Project,’ addressed a guy named Elon who would transport humanity to Mars?” Mr Li tweeted, alongside a photo of the non-fiction scientific book. “Absolutely insane.”
Last October, Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX and Tesla, stated that he hoped to launch a manned mission to Mars in 2024.
Mr Musk has also stated that he would like to be buried on Mars, telling an audience in December, “Listen, we’re all going to die sometime.”
“So, if you’re going to die someday, do you want to be buried on Mars or on Earth?” I’m thinking, Mars seems interesting! “I was born on Earth and died on Mars.”
SpaceX successfully landed its Starship SN15 prototype for the first time yesterday, marking a significant step forward in space flight.
The prototype rocket flew more than six miles into the sky in a flying test before reorienting and landing vertically on Earth.
The previous four prototypes have all been blasted to bits upon landing, so this newest achievement is a major step forward for Mr Musk.
Another Twitter user, Pranay Pathole, confirmed the forecast by tweeting the English-translated website that references Elon.
His data, however, implies that Elon is a title rather than a name.
Mr Musk responded to the unusual prognosis by tweeting, “Are we sure this is real?”
“Yeah, it’s real,” Mr Pathole replied. This is the same book’s English translation.
“However, in the book, Von Braun refers to ‘Elon,’ which is the name of the office, something akin to an elected meritocratic president.”
“The Martian Government was directed by ten individuals, the chief of whom was elected for five years by universal vote and named ‘Elon’,” according to the book.
