Musk went on to say the colony would need basic living fundamentals before it officially becomes a colony, hinting at things like glass domes and power stations. The presentation included a stock audience-participation question: How many people would go?

Musk's ventures, electric auto maker Tesla and rocket transport outfit SpaceX, are designed specifically to help stave off these dangers, and in a worst case scenario, provide humanity the tools to escape them.

"Mark my words: AI is far more unsafe than nukes, by far, so why do we have no regulatory oversight, this is insane".

Musk previously stated that the race for AI could start World War III.

The ultimate goal of the mission, of course, is a Mars colony.

Government to reveal policy paper on abortion if 8th amendment is repealed
According to RTE, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said: "On my first day as Taoiseach I committed to holding a referendum this year". A woman will be obliged to wait 48-72 hours before a termination can take place.

Once Musk figures out how to get to Mars, the real work will begin, as humans will have to build everything they need to survive in the planet. Musk pointed out the upcoming giant BFR rocket which is 100% reusable and will bring down the cost of space travel within the range of what Falcon 1 (first flight by SpaceX) cost i.e. between $5 to $6 million Dollars. On Mars, Musk expects people will vote directly on issues.

When Nolan asked what his fans could contribute to making those Martian dreams a reality, Musk replied that their "general support and encouragement, and goodwill" was enough for now - something that the cheering SXSW crowd had in abundance. He mocked the Republican tax bill passed in December 2017 whose length exceeded 1,000 pages after including conference committee report and other details by saying that the bills passed on Mars will not be longer than "Lord of the Rings".

Musk urged future colonizers to "keep laws short", so that people can easily read and digest the bills before voting on them. But besides the seriousness of some of his remarks, Musk did talk about some of his past ventures, including his Boring Company.

He also raised eyebrows when asked the source of his inspiration, citing iconic entertainer Fred Astaire and irascible hip-hop artist Kanye West. The one thing that SpaceX has going for it is the experience it has than it did a few years ago.

Speaking during a Q&A at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, on Sunday, the SpaceX founder addressed his plans to colonize Mars and what it will be like for those early pioneers on the red frontier.
