if elon musk has billions $$$ to spend sending people to mars, why doesn't he just simulate it here on earth?
he could build a biosphere out in the desert and have the same experience living in it at a fraction of the cost without the life-threatening risks.

same reason as to why people travel to known destination. as time goes by we will be able to travel to mars. also, going to the movies, showing us what life would be like on mars, is a better idea than wasting money on a bio-sphere.

Eh. Exploration is more fun than simulation. You learn new things, and you might discover or invent something along the way to benefit mankind.

Already done that and not very popular or cost effective. Biosphere 2 was quite a flop.

It gets rid of a bunch of people admittedly at a high cost.

Because that wouldn't make him famous. It's already been done ("biosphere 2")

The point is to go to another planet, explore it, and live on it.
Columbus and the pilgrims could have started a village in Europe but they crossed the ocean to settle in a new place.

Maybe he just doesn't like the people he is sending to Mars?
If I had that kind of money there are a few people I would like to send there.

Simulation means fake
Fake means ConspiracySource(s): Eclipse for our Flat Earth friends
