No. Not by a long shot.The main reason is that no-one, no humanu2023 on the face of this planet right now has any reasonable or believable idea of what the total resource cost will be, might be, or is going to be. - As of today.And you can guarantee that whatever resource estimate someone might calculate (lets say Mr. Musk and his u2023 planet sized brainu2023 can actually build a spreadsheet with all the details in it)u2026everyone who lays eyes on it knows that itu2019s going to be wildly inaccurate & error prone by a very large %u2026because no person in the history of humanity has ever built a colony off planet Earth.The resources needed is not a compute-able quantity in advance.Any answer proposed cannot be believed.A simple fact to put things into perspectiveu2026building a rocket to get you there & back, probably isnu2019t even 1% of the resource cost. And that statement is probably off by a factor of 200%.Yes, but we have some experience. Right?Building a self sustaining research station on Antarctica or in the Atacama desert, or inside the Arctic circle is one thing; and we have quite a lot of historical experience doing that - today (after 100 years of trying & failing & lots of people dying). Extrapolating all that hard earned experience & understanding of resourcing such effortsu2026then translating that into a resource plan for a Martian colony on a planet where there is no oxygen, no atmosphere, only 38% of Earths gravity, deadly radiation pouring down on you every second, no native energy sources, no food, no plant lifeu2026its almost impossible to estimate in advance.Below is Scott Base, Antarctica.And Thule Airbase in the Arctic.And the Atacama desert in Chile (on this planet).In-fact, its such an insanely difficult exercise to do that before you start estimating the resources needed, you know in-your-heart that youu2019ve already got it wrong. Youu2019ll never get the resource estimate right, So you throw away your spreadsheet and basicallyu2026you realize that you need to go in with a blank check. - Thatu2019s how governments approach territorial colonization. Itu2019s a religious, political & national commitment.Which is why Countries, Nations & Sovereign States engage in colonization, establish & create territorial colonies. Corporations and businesses do not.Humanity used to do colonization in concert with corporations 300 years ago. The concept of a business corporation was actually created (by Holland and England) to assist those governments with the Herculean efforts of expanding the empire and colonizing unclaimed remote territories and managing the immense financial & resources heavy burden of building an empire. Great examples of this model are the infamous & legendary colonization corporations likeu2026u201cDutch East India Company (the VOC)u201dWhich was an early 17th Century Mega-Corporation. A government-backed military-commercial enterprise, formed from a government-directed amalgamation of several rival Dutch trading companies. The VOC possessed quasi-governmental powers, including the ability to wage war, imprison and execute convicts, negotiate treaties, strike its own coins, and establish colonies. Through its technology, investment & commerce the company famously raised the commercial & industrial potential of many underdeveloped & undeveloped regions of the world. This seems like a model that might work for SpaceX. But lets not forget that the VOC was dissolved in 1799. All assets were taken over by the government, with all the VOC territories becoming Dutch government coloniesu2026and that the VOC engaged in monopolistic policies, exploitation, colonialism, violence, and slavery. - Corporations donu2019t legally do these things in 2019.East India Company (EIC) of Britain. So famousu2026that is was simply known all over the word as u201cThe Companyu201d. - Now thatu2019s a brand!u2018The Companyu2019, was formed & Royally charted by the Queen of England on 31 Dec, 1600. and was so successful that it rose to account for half of the world's trade !!!The EIC ended up seizing control over large parts of the Indian subcontinent, colonized large parts of Southeast Asia (the region), and colonized (basically owned) all of Hong Kong. By 1803, at the height of its rule in India, the British East India company had a private army of about 260,000u2014twice the size of the British Army. It exercised military power, claimed territories and assumed full administrative functions over them. Through its technology, investment & commerce it too famously raised the commercial & industrial potential of many underdeveloped & undeveloped regions around the world.Humanity doesnu2019t do Corporate Colonization & territorial expansionism like this anymore!! - It doesn't work.I donu2019t see Earthu2019s governments stepping back into the dark 1600u2019s and blessing SpaceX with a Royal Government Monopolistic charter to engage in Territorial Planetary Colonialismu2026for the sole benefit of Elon Musku2019s personally, his bank account, his company, his net-worth, his investors and his gigantic ego. - Thatu2019s just not going to happen.Also, thereu2019s an entire United Nations Space Treaty legal framework in place that prevents any Earth corporate entity from getting anywhere near colonizing a planet (or part of it), a dwarf planet, a moon, an asteroid or a zone of non-earth space as its own u2018private corporate mega assetu2019.The Outer Space TreatyOuter Space Treaty - WikipediaSo lets not use silly language likeu2026u201cSpaceX Colonizing Marsu201d. Thatu2019s just Elon Musk, SpaceX obsessive-religious fanboy language.Itu2019s not even legal for a corporate entity that is not recognized by the United Nations as a Sovereign State to legally create & own a colony as a business asset. So IMO, SpaceX will never legally Colonize Mars. SpaceX may be a business vendor that supplies services to some Sovereign state (or a alliance of countries) who will legally colonize Marsu2026but SpaceX (the Corporation) will likely never legally Colonize Mars, or anything. - thatu2019s just nonsense & fantasy.Net-net:Itu2019s nearly impossible (as of today) to estimate the resources needed in advance. A real colony basically requires a blank check. - Which ironically is easy to estimate.No human has any experience or capacity to draft an estimate and have the answer be received as credible or believable.No VC Mega Syndicate is going to privately fund SpaceX with a blank check to go colonize Mars, especially when people are definitely going to die.Itu2019s not legal for a corporation to colonize anything (on or off Earth). Again, what VC Mega Syndicate would fund an effort with that much unknown legal risk, where youu2019d be fighting governments & the UN and a UN treaty that was signed & ratified 52 years ago.Humanity hasnu2019t even accomplished Colonizing the Moon . In-fact, after 50 years, Humanity hasnu2019t even started that job yet. - Talking about doing it on Mars is ludicrous. Humanity needs another 50 years just to figure out how to actually attempt building a real off-planet colony.Therefore, No. SpaceX does not have the resources to colonize a Mars. It couldn't even attempt that on the Moon.
