Why? Because the air density of Mars is 1% of that of Earth. This simply translates into Mars offering a very low, almost negligible, air resistance to slow down any moving object. He further added that any sort of transportation on Mars will have to be electric. He said, “It would obviously have to be electric because there’s no oxygen. You have to have really fast electric cars or trains or things.”
