Christopher Columbus crossed the Atlantic Ocean long time ago and conquered the Americas. The Europeans founded a lot of nations here. Huge cities have been built on this part of the planet, we can mention New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, and more. The humans have advanced a lot in technology since those years, there have been a lot of innovations and improvements. The human race has decided to conquer the outer space, such a great goal! At first, it was mainly governments the ones that tried to go to the stars. The US and the Soviet Union competed for the conquest of the space.

But now, we can see that there are billionaires who have that goal in mind. Elon Musk wants to conquer Mars, how amazing it is! This is possible that in a not so far future we will see small human colonies on other planets and trips to the outer space will become more popular day after day. This is the beginning of a new era.

Technology has made distances shorter

Before Christ, the distances were really big because there were no cars, nor airplanes. Going from Greece to Egypt was a great adventure. Today, that is just a small trip. Even more, going to Australia isn't as spectacular as it was decades ago. The airplanes are no longer used by just a few, a huge number of people travel worldwide.

Many cities are no longer national cities, they have become global cities. This is real for New York, London, Toronto and more. We live in a global village. Conquering the space is part of this development.

Powerful companies emerge

Just try to imagine how powerful will be SpaceX, the company founded by Elon Musk. This will create a new frontier, a frontier open to mankind, not just to governments.

The importance and value of this company will grow exponentially, and this will be reflected in the markets. Traditional industries lose power year after year. We can see that General Motors isn't as powerful as it was in the past, there are new economic activities that have created powerful companies. Tesla will manufacture more electric vehicles and become more important.

This is a world of change

The mankind advances very fast, the companies innovate faster than in the past. Many countries that were poor and backward many decades ago, like South Korea or Singapore, have become rich today. Companies such as Tesla, SpaceX, Google and others are new but they grow fast. They are challenging the traditional way of life. Christopher Columbus reached the Americas many centuries ago, and now Elon Musk wants to conquer Mars.
