Coincidentally, A 1953 Book Once Said A Man Named Elon Would Lead Humans To Conquer Mars

Coincidentally, a 1953 book once said a man named Elon would lead humans to conquer Mars

The author of his book Wernher von Braun, a NASA scientist, is equally obsessed with Elon Musk's dream of exploring space and conquering Mars.
Sometimes there are strange coincidences in history.

Elon Musk, CEO and co-founder of reputable aerospace company SpaceX, is also known to be a fan of the plans to discover and send people to Mars by 2024. Other planets are the only way to save life on Earth. Even the SpaceX CEO has revealed that he wants to be buried on Mars.

A strange 1950s coincidence, in his science fiction novel, a NASA rocket scientist - one of the forerunners of spreading ambitions of space exploration and construction. human base on the Moon and Mars - Wernher von Braun mentioned a man named "Elon" who will lead the conquest of the Red Planet.

More precisely, "The Mars Project" reads: " The government on Mars is run by 10 people, with the head of which will be elected by the top popular votes every five years and are called "Elon." The two houses of Congress will be administered by Elon and his cabinet . "

"The Senate is known as the Council of the Elders and is limited to only 60 members, each of whom will be appointed for life by Elon when someone dies ."

With the leader known as "Elon", this name seems to honor the one who was at the forefront of conquering the planet (similar to what Western kings often call themselves Caesar).

In fact, this sci-fi work was never made public when it was rejected by 18 different publishers. Von Braun then publishes small pieces of it in magazines to illustrate his perspective on Mars conquest. It was not until 2006 that a complete manuscript of this work was printed into a book titled "Project Mars: A Technical Tale".

The book seemed to have fallen into oblivion until the end of last year when it was mentioned in a comment to Mr. Elon Musk's tweet about fate.

Mr. Musk's tweet said: " Destiny, destiny . And user Toby Li replied, " Speaking of fate, did you know that Von Braun's 1953 book" Mars Project "once mentioned a man named Elon who would send humans to Mars? crazy . "

This was also mentioned by a Reddit user u / sweetcuppingcakes three years before discovering an English manuscript of this work.

The original version of the work was written in German. That's because Mr. Wernher von Braun was one of the Nazi regime's rocket scientists at the end of World War II. At the end of the war, he and many other German scientists immigrated to the US and worked on the nation's space exploration program, eventually NASA.

Either way, this might just be one of the many strange coincidences of history. The name Elon can be derived from the Hebrew word "oak tree" - representing wisdom. It is not known exactly why Von Braun mentioned that name in his work when the scientist died in 1977, six years after Musk was born.
