Elon Musk Says 'Occupy Mars' But Uses Picture of the Moon Instead

You'd think Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, and astronomical genius, would be a little better at identifying planets, but apparently not.

Elon Musk Says 'Occupy Mars' But Uses Picture of the Moon Instead
You'd think Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, and astronomical genius, would be a little better at identifying planets, but apparently not.

Elon Musk is back in the news and no, this time he didn't tweet that he was deleting his Twitter account.

He did tweet something else entirely bizarre though: He tweeted 'Occupy Mars.'

This isn't out of tune with the kind of stuff you'd expect from Musk: He's always been very open with his support of more things in space, irrespective if those 'more things' are satellites, or people or Mars. In fact, Musk has always been advocating for more people to go and start a settler colony on Mars.

So tweeting, 'Occupy Mars' isn't the bizarre bit. Along with the quote, instead of a picture of Mars, he tweeted a picture of the moon.

You'd think Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, and astronomical genius, would be a little better at identifying planets, but apparently not. The picture of 'Mars' is a blood moon July 2018.

People on Twitter were quick to point this out.

Some had some advice, and quick fixes for him.

Musk did admit his mistake, and as redemption answered all interplanetary questions, especially if you actually were to 'Occupy the Moon.'
