What business would you build on Mars?

Business is one of these things that you need to be there and be on the ground to figure out what the actual business is and what you are going to call it. But let's just say the stepping stone to that before we'd get there is probably to contact Elon Musk and ask him if we could give away a Tesla or something that we could use on Mars, similar to a Tesla.

Love the brand that Tesla created obviously. It has great prestige. Use that as a magnet to get people to enter a unique experience. So be driven around in Tesla, around Mars and all the people that enter - we're going to get their database and data. So every single product that’s sold once people arrive you know, you're going to be the commercial point there towards launching a lot of conversations.
