Scientist predicted a man named ‘Elon’ would colonise Mars in book written 70 years ago
Writing in his 1952 science fiction novel "Project Mars", engineer Wernher von Braun described a man called "Elon" who ruled over the Red Planet.
One passage of the book – a fantasy blueprint for a human expedition to Mars – details that "a Martian government was created, led by ten men".
Those men worked under a leader "elected by universal suffrage for five years under the name or title of Elon."
Von Braun was one of the most influential scientists of the 20th century and a key figure in the development of rocket technology in Nazi Germany.
Following World War 2, he was secretly moved to the United States and became a pioneer of space technology for Nasa.
