„There’s likely to be another Dark Ages,” Elon Musk (SpaceX) said in an interview at South by Southwest in Austin. The three most important global threats are: climate change, malevolent artificial super-intelligences and a third world war. „We want to make sure that there’s enough of a seed of human civilization somewhere else so that we can bring civilization back and shorten the length of the dark ages.” Planning a Mars mission, a global telecommunications network for inexpensive internet service and creating an interplanetary hedge against World War Three isn’t cheap, so it’s no wonder that SpaceX is closing on $500 million in new cash through a financing round led by Fidelity.
