Is this for real? Or does Musk just enjoy trolling people online?

Enigmatic Elon

When SpaceX’s Starship heads to Mars in 2022, its payload could include a Tesla Cybertruck. Maybe.

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk has been hinting that his companies might once again team up to send a car into space — and depending on how you interpret one of his latest tweets, it’s starting to look even more likely that a Cybertruck could be headed to the Red Planet.

Open to Interpretation

In November 2019, Musk declared via Twitter that a pressurized version of Tesla’s Cybertruck would be the “official truck of Mars.” The following month, he noted in another tweet that Starship would have the payload capacity for a Cybertruck.

Then, on December 29, a Twitter user straight up asked Musk if a Cybertruck will be on board the 2022 Starship mission. His response? A single emoji: 😎


None of this is exactly a definitive confirmation, but right now, it seems one of the following is certain: either SpaceX is seriously considering sending a Cybertruck into space, or Musk really enjoys trolling people with the idea.
