SpaceX founder Elon Musk said Sunday that he plans to send a rocket to Mars by 2019. He had to borrow money from friends to keep going.

Mars will need Glass domes, a power station and an assortment of basic living fundamentals, he told the crowd.

Getting to that point hasn't been easy - he said early on that SpaceX nearly didn't survive.

By this point, he only had about $40m left.

"And when you put your energy into building something, it's your baby, so I couldn't choose".

Needless to say, we have all the confidence that she'll fulfill her role as a royal quite well. She said people here complain about the weather, and I said my goodness, they don't know.

Musk said he only had around $30 to $40 million left by 2008 and needed to make a hard decision: put all the money into one company and let the other die, or split it between the two and risk them both failing.

The Musk's Tesla will fly in space at a maximum speed of 7 miles per second and will get at 250 miles away from the Earth. Musk says that he expects those other entities to eventually build interplanetary transport vehicles of their own.

Still, Musk admitted the first humans to dare make the trip will be risking a lot. "And something that I haven't felt in an awfully long time".

He also said his tunnelling firm, the Boring Company, was started as a joke because he thought the name was amusing, and although he tweets about it a lot, it actually only takes up about 2% of his time. Why send a auto into outer space?

He also said he didn't feel enough progress had been made in recent years on space travel.

'Where are the space hotels that were promised in 2001 the movie?' he asked.

"The genesis of SpaceX was not to create a company, but how do we get Nasa's budget to be bigger?"

In a wide-ranging series of remarks, Musk regaled the audience with anecdotes about several of his other ventures, including Tesla and the Boring Company, with the billionaire joking he tweets about the latter more than he actually spends time working on it. Less than 120 minutes later, SpaceX/Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the demo satellites - each measuring about the size of a mini-refrigerator and carrying computer, power, command and control, propulsion and Global Positioning System navigation equipment - had successfully deployed and begun communicating with Earth stations.

"Mars will need everything from iron foundries to pizza joints", he said.
