Alibaba founder Jack Ma and Tesla CEO Elon Musk have offered their differing views about exploring Mars during the World AI Conference in Shanghai on Thursday.
Musk has shared his visions of Mars, as he said there is a probability at a certain point that some either external force or some internal unforced error causes civilization to be destroyed or sufficiently impaired such that it can no longer extend it to another planet.
However, Ma hasn’t shown much interest in outer space like Musk.“I'm not interested in Mars. I just came back from there though. I'm more interested in the earth, the things, what's going to happen here,” Ma joked. “I admire your courage for exploring Mars, but I admire a lot of people spending efforts on improving the earth.”
