¬†Elon’s plan was always to make the human race a multi-planetary species as he has said in multiple interviews. The timeline Musk gave was; two cargo landers would land on Mars in 2022, with four vehicles launching in 2024. Two of those 2024 ships would be crewed, meaning, in Musk’s timeline, humans could walk on Mars in just seven years.

 Interesting things are coming to Planet Mars in 2022!
