"Moon too", Musk said in a follow-up tweet.

The internet is mocking Elon Musk after he mixed up the moon and Mars.

SpaceX did announce new lunar plans past year. "That's no moon", wrote a Twitter user going by Space Pirate. The image was from the July 2018 lunar eclipse that was known as the blood moon because of the red hue. He responded to another user, "Moon 1st, as it's only 3 days away & u don't need interplanetary orbital synchronization".

But for Musk, there's some applicable context.

The 230-foot-tall rocket will carry 24 satellites for key customers, including the Department of Defence and NASA.

Musk's tweet came within hours of him saying that he is accelerating the development of Starship, a rocket that is created to go to Mars.

Mr Musk has long described the Falcon Heavy as a critical step in his long-running bid to send rockets and people to Mars someday.

Musk's rocket company SpaceX has been developing a launch site for reusable Mars rockets in Texas since 2014, Business Insider reported earlier this month.

On Sunday, Musk said he is accelerating the development of Starship and that people could start reserving their places to Mars after it returns from its first orbit around earth.

With all his talk about Mars you'd think Elon would know the difference between the two, and naturally Twitter has been quick to point out his latest failure to think about what he tweets.
