Thanks to Elon Musk, society won’t have to begin from square one

„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.
