As I said last year, there is 0% that SpaceX will land people on Mars IMO.

Sigh... Would you be willing to bet your $10 000 against my $10?

@Skyt3ch Would you take a bet where you get $10 if Trump is not re-elected and pay out $200 if he is re-elected?

In a [similar question concerning NASA](https://www.metaculus.com/questions/1476/will-nasa-land-people-on-mars-prior-to-2030/) word "branded" seems to be synonymous with a particular level of financial contribution: >The question will resolve positively even if the NASA-branded mission makes use of SpaceX transport system, under the condition that the main funding for the mission comes from USA budget. also, from the comment section: >>what if a multinational effort with NASA a major but not over 50% contributor? >If not over 50%, then NASA would nee...

I think this question should be added to Elon Musk related timeline. [edit: also these questions [1] [2] [3]

@(randomuser2323)This comment gives the impression that the planned uncrewed mission in 2018 and crewed in 2024 was meant to be performed with the same vehicle which it wasn't - it's important to note that 2018 mission was planned with [Red Dragon](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SpaceX_Red_Dragon) in mind, not Starship. >In April 2016, SpaceX announced that they had signed an unfunded Space Act Agreement with NASA, providing technical support, for a launch no earlier than 2018. In February 2017, SpaceX noted this launch date was delayed to no earlier than...


Note: this question mirrors an existing question, extending the scale to the 1-8B range. Make sure your prediction is consistent across both questions.


There's no NYT policy that prohibits using pseudonyms.

Can you provide a source for that claim?

What if team developing AI announce that their agent defeated high-rank Starcraft 2 player months ago? I mean situation similar to [AlphaGo vs Fan Hui](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AlphaGo_versus_Fan_Hui): >AlphaGo versus Fan Hui was a five-game Go match between European champion Fan Hui, a 2-dan (out of 9 dan possible) professional, and AlphaGo, a computer Go program developed by DeepMind, held at DeepMind's headquarters in London in October 2015. AlphaGo won all the five games. This was the first time a computer Go program had beaten a professional h...

Tesla delivers first $35,000 Model 3s to a happy few customers

Now several buyers have reached out to Electrek to confirm that they have taken delivery of the ‘Model 3 Standard Range’.

So it seems that question resolves positive.

@Jgalt I agree. When I posted my comment I was half-seriously referring to ETA below question.


Targeted Test Flight Dates:

Boeing Orbital Flight Test (uncrewed): August 2018

Boeing Crew Flight Test (crewed): November 2018

SpaceX Demonstration Mission 1 (uncrewed): August 2018

SpaceX Demonstration Mission 2 (crewed): December 2018

I think it would be helpful to explicitly disambiguate that (as I judge by these comments [[1]](https://www.metaculus.com/questions/1673/will-spacex-start-testing-a-starship-bfs-before-2020/#comment-11446) [[2]](https://www.metaculus.com/questions/1673/will-spacex-start-testing-a-starship-bfs-before-2020/#comment-11459) ) both "Starhopper" (currently built in Boca Chica and recently damaged by wind) and orbital Starship prototype (aimed to debut in June 2019) count for resolution criteria, so that users don't have to dig in the comment section to find th...
