Slightly over a week ago, Elon Musk, Founder of SpaceX, tweeted his beliefs on the construction of the Egyptian Pyramids. Arguably one of the greatest minds of our generation, Musk has long had his eyes up at the stars. “Aliens built the pyramids obv” he wrote on his official Twitter page. He further continued his theory with subsequent tweets stating that the pyramids were the tallest structures built by humans for over 3800 years. Whether the tweets were in a joking manor or not is unclear. Musk does have a history of making outlandish statements in both person and on social media. The 49 year old CEO of Tesla set his ambitions to the stars officially in 2002 when he founded SpaceX, the first ever privately owned space company. SpaceX made history this year, almost exactly 18 years after it was founded by sending its first manned mission to the space station. Elon has always had the goal of colonizing Mars and this is a major step in an amazing direction. In our life time we could see the first human to ever step foot on the red planet and it will almost certainly be Elon Musk and SpaceXs doing! Rania al-Mashat, Egypts Minister of International Co-operation invited Musk to check out the pyramids and their means of construction in person. Whether Musk will take the ministers offer remains to be seen.
