Elon Musk would surely find out if this is true, thus a potential client for his red planet colonization is no other than Leonardo Dicaprio. Though following Elon Musk's speech last week, Dicaprio's joke may have been well misunderstood to be true. At least, he is still in his right mind.
Many may have been amazed by the mars colonization development. But leaving the earth, paying $200,000 for it and traveling for 30 days with uncertainties of going back alive is something like of Dicaprio's movie Titanic. The keywords for this scenario would be tragic and expensive.
It is an event by Whitehouse called South by South Lawn summit where Leonardo Dicaprio and Dr. Katharine Hayhoe were among President Obama's guest. On this, YAHOO! recently reported that they are discussing the reality of climate change and its effects in relation to Dicaprio's documentary "Before the Flood".
While Dr. Hayhoe said, "The reality of it is, if you're a human living on this planet - which most of us are, yeah?" She then joked, "As long as we haven't signed up for the trip to Mars. I don't want to know if anyone has - I think you're crazy." And instantly, Dicaprio answered, "I did." With that, President Obama injected another joke saying, "I think you'll acknowledge he's crazy."
With the recent hot issues of debates in the US and all, this one can surely extinguish it, as one news source USATODAY suggested to do in a case of an impending election. The said discussion is definitely a serious matter, as climate change and global warming would definitely affect the next generations to come. But with the presence of Leonardo Dicaprio, one has to listen beyond the real meaning of what they are implying.
For one thing, actor Leonardo Dicaprio may just want to inspire in a reversed way to stay on earth and care for it. Surely, it is an eye-opener to do it now or least to wait for the next transport system of Elon Musk going to Mars.
