...a girl from Mars
If Musk gets his skates on, he could offer the "Girl from Mars" a trip to Mars
She is fully in support of manned missions to Mars. And she herself would love to be on the maiden voyage.
“It won’t happen now, but if I was younger I’d do it in an instant,” she says. “I’d still love to go back up. It’s a wonderful thing.”
