Elon Musk recently announced that SpaceX will still try to hit their aggressive timeline of sending cargo to Mars in 2022 followed by a crewed mission in 2024 (same year NASA is set to return to the moon). Will Elon reach the Moon or Mars first?

Elon Musk was recently asked if he will still try to launch their first cargo mission to the red planet in 2022 followed by a crew mission in 2024, and he responded that is in fact still their goal. Elon Musk has a history of setting ambition timelines between all of his businesses that tend to be delayed, known as “Elon Time” Elon sets these high goals to keep his team motivated with something to work towards.

If Elon does hit their goal of these two important missions, the question rises, where will Elon be first, the Moon or Mars? In 2024 Elon is hoping to launch their lunar version of Starship on the Moon, same years as Mars. This would be without a doubt an amazing year for the space community and for the world as a whole. A return to the Moon and the first steps taken on another planet would truly be something unforgettable.
