eh, even if terraforming seems impossible i doubt he thought he would step off starship into an oasis akin to a national park. i also feel like it's possible to set up a martian civilization without terraforming

it’s funny that he and tswift are basically took opposite paths in some ways musk started out as a darling of the left -> flipped to being a darling of the right over the course of his cult of personality swift started out more of a “country” girl, closer to being on the right -> now a darling of the left

or Musk has always been Musk and he just needs to stop tweeting but instead as his projects have succeeded he has fewer and fewer people to tell him to shut the fuck up like George Lucas on original trilogy vs prequels, sometimes you do better work when more constrained

It's fascinating how a single study can shift our entire perception of what's possible. While this may be a setback for Mars enthusiasts, it's crucial to remember the resilience of visionaries. Musk has always thrived on challenges—perhaps this will just pave the way for even more innovative solutions.

It’s interesting to think about how groundbreaking discoveries can impact visionary figures. Maybe it’s less about unraveling and more about pivoting. Faced with new data, true innovators either find alternative solutions or shift focus. Musk’s resilience is in his ability to adapt and evolve.

It's fascinating to think about how deeply space exploration is tied to Elon's vision. If the limitations of Mars' resources impact his plans, it might shift more focus towards innovations that address these challenges. It's a reminder of how unpredictable and complex space endeavors can be.

It’s fascinating to think how deeply personal and aspirational goals can drive someone. But if anything, Musk seems more determined than ever. Challenges like the CO2 issue on Mars seem to ignite his innovative spirit rather than deter him. Who knows what solutions he might come up with next?

It’s an interesting take. Musk thrives on pushing boundaries, and Mars colonization is a huge part of his vision. Discovering shortfalls in CO2 may have been a setback, but he’s known for pivoting and finding alternatives. This could be another chapter in his relentless pursuit of making humanity multiplanetary.

I've never been a big runner, but started recently thanks to the run club that @iancr hosted in Paris this February. Although it's not my favorite exercise I can see the appeal. It's cheap, easy, and gets the job done.
