Elon Musk is unquestionably the most interesting businessman in Silicon Valley - arguably the world - thanks to his nearly single-handed reignition of the space race. Doors open at 10:30AM, and the talk begins at 12:00PM CT / 1:00PM ET.
He also discussed his desire to create excitement around space exploration again within the public consciousness and revealed that before launching SpaceX, his initial plan was to find a way to gain more funding for NASA.
"But life can not just be about solving one miserable thing after another", he added.
"The only way I know how to share [the Falcon Heavy launch] is a trailer", Nolan said. In just two minutes, anyone who watched the launch live (whether via the livestream or in-person near the Cape Canaveral area) is transported back to where they were for the event.
"There are a lot of bad things happening all over the world, all the time".
Today's conversation ranged over all things Musk - from SpaceX and Tesla, to The Boring Company, Neuralink and the billionaire's concerns about artificial superintelligence.
"Wishful thinking for sure is a source of many problems in many walks of life, wishful thinking causes a lot of trouble", he lamented. He said that while many people may view Martian expeditions as an "escape hatch for the rich", in fact, it's more like what Ernest Shackleton promised his Antarctic explorers: "It'll be hard, dangerous, and there's a good chance you'll die".
"This guy called Tsiolkovsky, one of the early Russian rocket scientists, had a great saying".
Elon Musk released a attractive new short video about launching the Tesla Roadster driven by "Starman", a dummy equipped with a spacesuit, in space on the Falcon Heavy, SpaceX's latest rocket. Eventually, the AI-driven hosts remember the trauma they've endured.
