Last month, Grimes, who began seeing Musk in 2018, said in an online Q&A that she wanted to relocate to Mars after she turns 50 to help erect a human colony there, The Sun reported.

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Elise Boucher, added of the ambitious move, ‘Manual labor until death most likely, but hopefully that can change.’

On Tuesday, SpaceX had another setback with its Starship project, as a prototype Mars rocket failed about six minutes into its test flight, according to the AP. 

After the stainless steel rocket shattered in Texas, Musk took the attempt in stride, tweeting, ‘At least the crater is in the right place!’

He noted that a ‘significant’ event took place before the landing sequence involving the engines.

‘Should know what it was once we can examine the bits later today,’ he said.

Musk said that he and his staff continue streamlining the design of the rocket, adding, ‘Hopefully, one of those improvements covers this problem.’

Musk said earlier this month that his company will touch their ships down on Mars ‘well before 2030,’ and the vexing overlying issue of the endeavor ‘is making Mars Base Alpha self-sustaining.’
