Via: The Sun:

ELON Musk’s plot to colonise other worlds may have been predicted by a German scientist 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.”
