Elon Musk is sending people around the Moon for only 153NZD/km. That makes it for a total of 100k NZD for one passenger. Expensive? The Guardian explains how much we pay when we take the British Underground: 25NZD/ km, this is, according to them, by far the most expensive ticket known to man. Bus is next expensive with 19NZD/km which beats by far the most expensive airliner ticket (the Etihad’s penthouse) which costs only 3NZD/km.
The mission, according to USA today
“presents an opportunity for humans to return to deep space for the first time in 45 years, and they will travel faster and farther into the solar system than any before them”
And should the world be wary of Elon Musk’s space race?
Professor Kathy Campbell, University of Auckland discussed this with Duncan Garner on Radio Live.
