Travel is one of the greatest joys in life. What could be better than exploring a new place? You get to learn about an entirely new culture, perhaps try out a new language, and taste so much delicious food. It's pretty obvious why so many people advise traveling to new and exciting locales.
But you know what's not so great about travel? Well...the part where you actually have to do the traveling. Spending ten hours on a plane? No thank you. Layovers and delays? Ick. So unsurprisingly, people have been clamoring for better, faster ways to get where they want to go (no matter how amazing our current technology is).
Enter our boy Elon Musk. If anyone has a vision for faster travel, it's this guy. And his claims about what his SpaceX rocket Starship will be able to do in the next ten years go beyond impressive. They seem almost unbelievable. But you'll have to decide for yourself how much you believe.
Long plane rides are the absolute worst.There's no two ways around it.
Between the weird people you meet...and the lack of personal space?
Plus the inevitable awkwardness of trying to get to the bathroom...Any plane ride over an hour is not something that I'm super into.
But travel is great!I'm willing to suffer some hours on a plane in order to sunbathe on a beautiful beach.
But what if we didn't have to?That's truly the dream.
Enter Elon Musk.
