Having pioneered Nazi Germany's rocket technology before being recruited to work for the Americans at the end of World War II, Wernher von Braun remains a prominent figure in the history of the space race and the development of the technology that would one day take us to the Moon.
In response to a Tweet by Musk about destiny, one user - Toby li - noted:
"Speaking about destiny, did you know that Von Braun's 1953 book 'Mars Project,' referenced a person named Elon that would bring humans to Mars? Pretty nuts."
"Two houses of Parliament enacted the laws to be administered by the Elon and his cabinet."
Seeing the funny side, Musk responded by Tweeting:
"Technoking of Tesla, Imperator of Mars."
