Less than 14 months after publicly declaring that she would retire to Mars with hubby Elon Musk, it looks like British actress Talulah Riley will be spending her golden years right here on Earth.

Yep, the marriage of the 26-year-old Riley and her 40-year-old SpaceX CEO has gone kaput. Alan Boyle of Cosmic Log broke the sad news today.

It was the second marriage for Musk, the first for Riley. Musk has five children with sci-fi novelist Justine Musk.
