San Francisco (Daily Pakistan Online) Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, has said that he is not interested in traveling to Mars, but will spend his money on helping people on Earth and paying for vaccines.
In an interview with the BBC, Bill Gates, 67, was asked directly about SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and philanthropy. “Would you encourage him (Elon Musk) to join your club of mega-philanthropists?”
To this Bill Gates said “I think Elon Musk will be a great philanthropist someday, things like Tesla are making a positive impact without the philanthropic aspect. Besides going to Mars a few times, which has a little The cost may come, he doesn’t believe that the CEO of SpaceX will spend most of his wealth on himself. So yes, someday I think he will be among the philanthropists.”
Further when asked specifically if he thought going to Mars would be “a good use of money”, the Microsoft co-founder said “I don’t think so”. Bill Gates said “Going to Mars is actually quite expensive. You can buy a measles vaccine and spend a thousand dollars for every life saved, so don’t go to Mars.”
