Elon Musk tweeted a Japanese image called 'Space Ark' ala Noah's Ark and captioned it: 'Starship takes beings of Earth to Mars'.

Elon Musk has now given his Mars colonisation plans some kind of Biblical significance. He likened SpaceX’s Red Planet-bound rocket Starship to Noah’s Ark, implying that it would save Earth’s beings from a metaphorical drowning planet and transport them to Mars. He shared a 1968 image called ‘Space Ark’ by Japanese artist Shigeru Komatsuzaki, where pairs of animals are seen boarding a rocket called ‘Ark of Space’ ala Noah’s Ark.

“Starship takes beings of Earth to Mars," the new Twitter boss wrote in the caption. Many people, however, had doubts regarding the human beings who seem to be held back at gunpoint from the saviour ship in the image.

Starship’s orbital flight test is unlikely to happen before 2023, reported Independent. Starship would initially aim to transport people and cargo to the Moon and once a Moon base has been constructed, it would aim to jet off to Mars.

Meanwhile, Musk’s Neuralink, that would purportedly allow people to communicate directly with a computer through their thoughts, using a device implanted in their brains, is also getting ready for human transplant.

“We’ve submitted I think most of our paperwork to the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and we think probably in about six months we should be able to have our first Neuralink in a human," Musk said earlier this month.

He added, “We’ve been working hard to be ready for our first human (implant), and obviously we want to be extremely careful and certain that it will work well before putting a device in a human."
