(Reuters) -Billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk on Thursday offered inventors $ 100 million in prize money to develop ways to fight global warming by removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or ocean. "Right now we've only got one planet," said Musk , CEO of electric carmaker Tesla Inc. "Even a 0.1% chance of disaster By 2050, some 10 billion tonnes of carbon capture may be needed, by some estimates. "I think this is one of those things that is going to take a while to figure out what the right solution is," Musk said. "And especially to figure out what the best economics are for CO 2 removal."

"And especially to figure out what the best economics are for CO 2 removal." Musk 's $ 100 million XPRIZE Carbon Removal is aimed at finding a viable solution for taking 1,000

Tech billionaire Elon Musk was on Thursday in a live stream for his competition "Xprize Carbon Removal" competition see. Musk has loved a prize money of $ 100 million for technology projects to help remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere. Thus, climate change should be stopped by high carbon dioxide emissions.

To win, the teams must demonstrate the removal of CO2 in the scale of 1,000 tonnes per year, modeling the cost of a million tonnes per year (megatonna) and present a plan to in the future sustainably the scale of gigatonna per year To achieve, it is called in the guidelines of the competition.

Musk appeared barefoot and with a new haircut. In his appearance, he chatted with Xprize chairman Peter Diamandis in Cape Canaveral, Florida, but not only on competition, but answered questions of spectators. So he spoke that in the existing market economy there was a "mistake at the prices". Side effects, such as carbon dioxide emissions or waste disposal, would not yet be priced. He therefore advocates a CO2 tax, which should not be "aggressive" or "unfair" to low earners.

Satellite network to find carbon super-emitters

Elon Musk , the world’s richest man, is donating $ 100 million toward a prize for the “best carbon capture technology.” Carbon capture is, in fact, a broad mix of technologies with the same aim: collecting carbon dioxide so it doesn’t escape into the atmosphere and contribute to global warming. Musk , who heads Tesla Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corp., said he’ll unveil details of the prize next week. But his past statements suggest that one of his key goals is to lower the price of direct-air carbon capture so it can feasibly be used to make synthetic rocket fuel, replacing the fossil fuels

(Reuters) - Tesla Inc chief and billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk on Thursday took to Twitter to promise a $ 100 million prize for development of the "best" technology to capture carbon dioxide emissions. "Am donating 0M towards a prize for best carbon capture technology," Musk wrote in a tweet, followed by a second tweet that promised " Details next week." Tesla officials did not immediately respond to a request for additional information. Musk , who co-founded and sold Internet payments company PayPal Holdings Inc, now leads some of the most futuristic companies in the world.

Musk also spoke about his space travel program to Mars. With his company Spacex he wants to transport people to Mars and colonize the planet.

Musk denies the question of whether Spacex is a kind of escape route for rich people. He warns that "a pile of people are likely to die" at the beginning of Mars expeditions, but compared with every previous danger, which was associated with discoveries and pioneering trips.

The Elon Musk Foundation, Musks relatively new philanthropic arm, sponsors the project,. The prize money of $ 100 million will be the biggest sum that has given the organization so far. Since the criticism of its modest philanthropic efforts as one of the richest people in the world, Musk has invested money in a number of organizations.

NASA's $85million Mars helicopter takes off on the Red Planet

  NASA's $85million Mars helicopter takes off on the Red Planet Taking off earlier this morning, Ingenuity flew for just under 40 seconds, travelling up 10ft into the Martian atmosphere before landing successfully back on the surface.Taking off at exactly 08:34 BST, it climbed up to 10ft in the air, maintained a stable hover for 30 seconds before descending and touching back down on the surface of Mars. It spent 39.1 seconds in flight, NASA said.

Elon Musk says he is "confident" moving to Mars will "one day" cost less than 0,000 and "maybe even" cost below $ 100 ,000. While the final cost is "very dependent on [the] volume" of travelers, Musk said the cost of moving to Mars will be "low enough that most people in advanced economies could sell their home on Earth [and] move to Mars if they want." The "aspirational goal" for SpaceX is to send the first rocket to Mars (with cargo only ) in 2022, according to SpaceX's website. The second mission, which will take more cargo and crew, is aiming to go in 2024.

On Monday, Musk revealed the further details he’d promised. The Musk Foundation would be donating $ 100 million to distribute three main prizes and 15 “milestone” prizes for carbon capture technology. The grand prize winner, able to demonstrate a “rigorous, validated scale model of their carbon removal solution” and also demonstrate the ability to economically scale that solution to gigaton levels, will earn million, according to the XPRIZE website. The second -place team will earn million, and third-place will win million. Additionally, the top 15 most promising teams 18 months
