The Axel Springer Award ceremony took place in Berlin last night. It is given to individuals who innovate, change markets, shape culture and take on social responsibility. This year Elon Musk received the Axel Springer Award.
During his speech at the awards, Elon Musk shared some interesting thoughts, including about SpaceX’s plans to conquer Mars. Elon said that man would land on Mars within the next six years. And if you’re lucky, it will happen in four years. For this mission, SpaceX is building the Starship and a rocket of the same name.
By the way, Musk’s timing at the Axel Springer Award coincides with his statement about Mars in 2016. Then he said that a person could land on the red planet within 10 years.
