SpaceX’s headquarters in Hawthorne, California saw a surprising advertisement that was directed at founder and CEO Elon Musk. He mentioned that ‘Mars Sucks’, which appeared to be a dig into Musk’s plans to find life in it. Made by the Activist agency in Los Angeles, this creation was live for 30 hours on Earth Day and definitely honored the planet we live on.
In addition to posting the tweet, the company also moved forward in defining the idea with the caption: ‘What doesn’t suck? #land’. Here’s the full post in case you missed it.
What doesn’t suck? #land But the way we treat it, frankly, sucks. And then you dream of #Mars. A hell. A barren, desolate wasteland where you can’t set foot fast enough. Great, we made it to Mars. Now we are going to #prioritizeearth #marssucks #Earth day #Elon Musk pic.twitter.com/7bkybArErU

It appears that Activista went out of their way to detail how much the Earth matters to them by purchasing the domain marssucks.com. According to them, Mars will be an unfavorable environment to live with a temperature of -117 degrees C.
This also sparked a debate that netizens and researchers have been wrestling with for a few years. Is it really smart to spend time and resources inhabiting Mars? Rather, people feel that the same could be used to make Earth a more hospitable place to live. Like Musk, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, with his company Blue Origin, also wants to explore Moon as an option. However, he also feels that Earth is definitely the most suitable option.
For those of you wondering why Musk is thinking about Mars, consider this to be one of his goals. With that said, it’s also important to note that you’re not abandoning anything on Earth. With his company Tesla, he is now trying to shell out electric vehicles for years to come to make the planet a smart and sustainable destination.
What do you think of all the initiatives taken by Elon Musk?
