SPACE FANTASY #78: Elon Musk Tweet: Occupy Mars

Elon Musk ridiculed for using a picture of the MOON in a tweet about 'Occupy Mars' as he reveals SpaceX will ramp up Raptor Engine production to 'one every 12 hours'

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has announced that one of the company's most powerful engines will be produced at a rate of about one per every 12 hours by the end of the year in his quest to get a person on Mars. The massive production ramp-up was foreshadowed by a series of tweets posted early Monday morning, which began with a bold photo: an orange-tinted orb, with bold font reading, 'OCCUPY MARS.' But that orb was in fact a picture of an orange-tinted 'blood-moon', not of Mars. As Twitter followers rushed to point out the blunder, Musk eventually segued into more substantive - if speculative - news, shedding light on a huge leap in the company's production output. Source
