In a tweet posted this Sunday, February 10, 2019 and spotted by Business Insider, he said that moving to Mars "will cost less than $ 500,000 a day or maybe even less than $ 100,000":

Very dependent on volume, but I'm confident moving to Mars (return ticket is free) will be less than $ 500k & maybe even below $ 100k. Low enough that they are more likely to be able to sell their home on Earth.

" The founder of SpaceX also said that if someone realized that he or she did not like Mars, a "free return ticket" would be offered by SpaceX.

Elon Musk will rely primarily on one thing to make the journey to Mars affordable: minimize the cost of manufacturing and launching the Starship. "It may seem implausible, but I think there is a way to build a Starship / Super Heavy for less than the Falcon 9 rocket," Elon Musk said.

Indeed, to reduce the cost of manufacturing the Starship, SpaceX has made a radical change, asking its engineers to use stainless steel alloys instead of carbon fiber. The boss of SpaceX …
