We are going to Mars! President Trump Signs New $19.5 Billion NASA Bill; and Elon Musk’s Vision to Colonize Mars?


LISTEN NOW! (Or Watch Full Program!) Considering how many people are traveling throughout the world right now, can you imagine traveling beyond the confines of our globe, past the Moon, and traveling to Mars? With the President’s recent decision to fund a $19.5 Billion NASA Bill, there are new possibilities and horizons for space exploration.
Surrounded by Senator Cruz, Senator Nelson, co-authors of the Bill, as well as many other governmental leaders, and representatives from NASA, President Trump comments on the impact of this new Bill. “With this legislation, we support NASA’s scientists, engineers, astronauts, and their pursuit of discovery. We support jobs, it’s about jobs also. This bill calls for ongoing medical monitoring and treatment of our heroic astronauts for health conditions that result from their service.” He continues, “…It advances space science by maintaining a balanced set of missions and activities to explore our solar system and the entire universe. And it ensures that through NASA’s astronauts and aeronautics research, the United States will remain a total leader in aviation.”
Amazing advancements, inventions, and discoveries have taken place since man has entered into space exploration. There have only been 12 people to walk on the Moon. But, can you imagine walking on Mars? Elon Musk, the co-founder of Paypal, CEO of Tesla, has plans to not only reach Mars, but to colonize Mars. Musk is also the founder of SpaceX, which created the ability to re-use rockets that are able to exit Earth’s atmosphere and return to the launch pad. Musk recently spoke about his vision to colonize Mars.
After the vision of a rocket landing on Mars shows what this would look like, he then begins to describe the two paths that are in our future. “One path is that we stay on Earth forever and then there will be some eventual extinction event. I don’t have an immediate doomsday prophecy…history suggests there will be some doomsday event.” With this in mind, he then proposes an alternative. “…the alternative is to become a space-faring civilization and a multi-planet species which I hope you would agree that is the right way to go.” His goal is to make the cost of traveling to Mars equal the “median cost of a house in the United States”. As he states this to be about $200,000, he adds, “I think the probability of establishing a self-sustaining civilization is very high…”

Musk talks about a “eventual extinction event”. This is true. This will eventually happen. It happens when the last Trumpet sounds and the last Bowl is poured out upon the Earth. Revelation 21:1 highlights, “Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” Our hope is not in Mars, but in Eternity, with Jesus Christ.
