70 years ago a scientist and sci-fi author predicted a man named "ELON" would colonize Mars 😳

May 8th

Yep, really happened:

Pioneering aerospace engineer and science-fiction writer Wernher von Braun may have predicted Elon Musk's plan to colonize other worlds nearly 70 years ago when he described a man named "Elon" ruling over Mars.

Von Braun created the character "Elon" in his 1952 science fiction novel "Project Mars" — a space fantasy about a mission to Mars, according to a report.

Von Braun, one of the most important scientists in the development of rocket technology, describes a Martian government led by ten men, who worked under a leader "elected by universal suffrage for five years under the name or title of Elon."

How is this even possible?

What are the odds?

Between Elon going to Mars and Dogecoin going to the moon, I'm beginning to think Musk might not be entirely human.
