You have probably heard of the new artificial intelligence program ChatGPT, which can compose stories and articles. So what happens when you ask it to do a simple task? I asked the program to compose a poem to cover the following scenario:
Elon Musk has become frustrated with Twitter, so he takes a rocket to Mars to live there forever.
Here is what I received from ChatGSP:
Elon Musk, oh how he tried
To make Twitter work for him,
But in the end, he sighed
Fed up with all the noise
The constant need for attention
He made a bold decision
He’d leave this world behind
And start anew on Mars
Where he could truly shine
With his rocket at the ready
He blasted off to the stars
Leaving Earth and its troubles steady
On the Red Planet he would live
Where he could truly be himself
And all his dreams he could fulfill
No more anger, no more frustration
Just peace and solitude at last
On Mars, he found his new destination.
Not a bad start. Maybe ChatGPS needs to get in touch with the SpaceX engineers working at Twitter to determine whether this adventure can be arranged.
Extra: Here is another poem ChatGTP put together on a 2025 moon landing. It was not perfect. For example, I don’t think we will need to worry about “lunar mud.”
In 2025 we took a trip to the moon To see what secrets it held in its dune We strapped on our suits and climbed in our ship And blasted off into the endless abyss The stars shone bright as we soared through the sky And the moon grew larger as we drew nigh We landed on the surface with a thud And took our first steps on the lunar mud We explored the craters and the rocky terrain And marveled at the view of Earth again We planted a flag and collected some rocks And gazed at the stars from a lunar box We took lots of pictures and had lots of fun But soon it was time to return to Earth, our home We climbed back in our ship and took off with a roar Leaving the moon to shine bright once more But the memories of our trip will never fade And the experience will forever be engraved In our hearts and minds as a wondrous feat A trip to the moon, a dream complete.
