A few weeks ago, U.S. president Donald Trump received a fair share of mocking after tweeting that the moon is a part of Mars.
Now, Elon Musk has made a similar blunder — or has he?
On Monday, Musk tweeted an image of the “Blood moon,” taken during the lunar eclipse in July 2018, alongside a sign that said “Occupy Mars.”
After someone pointed out the apparent error, Musk replied with a couple of smilies and a quick follow-up: “Moon too.”
Some of Musk’s followers took the opportunity to mock him for mistaking Mars and the moon.
But given that Musk is a CEO of a fairly well-known company that sends things and people into space, it’s unlikely that he actually made this error. Was he mocking Trump and his recent blunder?
Trump’s warped everyone’s brain. The moon isn’t mars.

We may never know the real truth, but we must always remember Musk’s recent admission that his Twitter feed is “complete nonsense.”
