"For the early people that go to Mars, it will be far more risky", Musk said.
Bolton and Berkley told the news outlet that they are launching a new "comedy project" but did not provide details on how Musk would be involved.
At South by Southwest, SpaceX Founder and CEO Elon Musk projected that his first Mars spaceship will be ready for short trips by the first half of next year.
But this nugget of information wasn't really unearthed until The Onion published a piece early February titled "Elon Musk Offering $1,2 Billion in Grants to Any Project That Promises to Make Him Feel Complete".
Not one to shy away from the odds, Musk seems to be well aware of not only the challenges presented by the concept of manned interplanetary space travel, but also the perceptions of those challenges around the world. Former Onion editor in chief Cole Bolton and executive editor Ben Berkley are both said to be involved with this project ever since they left the publication in 2017. Former members of The Onion, including editor-in-chief Cole Bolton and executive editor Ben Berkeley, jumped ship from the publication previous year, citing differences with the management.
According to a report from the Daily Beast, Musk has hired half a dozen editors with ties to The Onion as part of a secret project that may end up being a rival satirical humor site.
Keeping many of their friends and former colleagues in the dark, many have speculated that it could be another written satirical news website.
