Musk spoke in his interview that:

The universe appears to be about 8million years ago.

Earth is about half a billion old.

In the next half a billion years old, the sun will expand.

The expansion of the sun will evaporate the oceans thereby making life impossible on earth.

Assuming it has taken the consciousness 10% longer to evolve, it would never have evolved at all just 10% longer.

And I wonder how many dead one-planet civilizations are out there in the cosmos that never made it to the outer planet and then ultimately extinguish themselves or were destroyed by external factors probably a few.

Below is a video detailing what Elon Musk has to say regarding humans living on Mars.

Whether it is possible or not to live on Mars, Musk has actually pointed out some important reasons why we should be looking for alternatives ahead of the next 500 million years to come when it is believed that the closeness of the sun to the earth will cause the oceans to vaporize and intense heat will make life on earth impossible.

This is really a message to someone with good information about the cosmos. Inhabiting Mars is a great idea that offers hope to humans ahead of the upcoming calamities from Sun expansion in 500 million years.
