The world’s richest man, who is worth an estimated $181bn (£149bn), has since laid off half the company’s 7,500 workforce. Hundreds more staff are believed to have left, following an email saying that long hours and “hardcore” work would be required of those who remained. It has led some SpaceX fans to fear about the future of Musk’s long-mooted Mars plans, but the billionaire moved to ease those worries. Musk, 51, has previously said that his plan to establish a colony on Mars would allow humans to become not just multi-planetary but interstellar. It is hoped that a completely self-sufficient Mars colony could be set up by around 2050, though the SpaceX boss is yet to speak publicly about what comes after.
