Feeling that this is of utmost importance to humanity, Musk explains: Do we want a future when we’re forever confined to one planet until some eventual extinction event… Or do we want to become a multi-planet species?
Musk votes a hearty “Yes!” for the latter. He intends to personally visit the International
