On 22 April, we celebrate our gorgeous and mysterious Earth for the 51st annual Earth Day, which promotes environmental protection as we look at the wonders that Earth holds. However, others who fancy other worlds, such as Mars, was trolled before the special day.
SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk, was recently trolled with a giant billboard placed outside of SpaceX headquarters. The billboard read "Mars Sucks" ahead of Earth Day. The billionaire entrepreneur has not hidden his fascination and desire to reach Mars. As we all know, the CEO is currently developing Starship for interplanetary exploration.
Musk added that he hopes to land on the Red Planet by the end of the decade. He also hopes to establish a self-sustaining colony on Mars by 2050.
The space company is working hard on reaching its goal of landing on Mars. Although, each Starship test flight has so far still ended in spectacular explosions. However, the company remains positive and plans on carrying out an orbital Starship flight by July.

What doesn't suck? #earth But the way we treat it frankly, sucks. And then, you dream of #mars. A hellhole. A barren, desolate, wasteland you can’t set foot on fast enough. Great, we got to Mars.

The "Mars Sucks" advert was placed on a billboard outside the SpaceX campus in Hawthorne, California, by Los Angeles creative agency, Activista.
