Of course you will find Elon Musk among those we closely follow. Not because he called his main company TESLA - who we think is the greatest scientists of all time. We follow Musk because he is a visionary and a great entrepreneur! Join us in learning more about his road to success. And, of course, who else would be best to lead the journey other than ... Neil de Grasse Tyson.
=== On March 22nd, StarTalk show had an interesting episode about "The Future of Humanity with Elon Musk". In it Neil deGrasse Tyson explores the future of humanity with one of the men forging that future: billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and Tesla Motors.
Basically you can just listen to this "radio" interview – Tyson, Bill Nye, and Elon Musk.
Join us as Neil and Elon talk about NASA funding, getting humans excited for the colonization of Mars, and why Elon feels it’s important to not be stuck here on Earth. You’ll also find out why sustainable production and consumption of energy is critically important, but flying cars may not be such a good idea. Meanwhile, guest engineer Bill Nye schools Neil and Chuck Nice about SpaceX’s major innovations and how they’ve improved efficiency and lowered the cost of commercial space flight. They discuss the value of human exploration of space, life on Mars, and Bill’s next book about climate change, Unbounded.
Finally, you’ll discover why Elon, who was programming computers at the age of 9, is afraid of the consequences for mankind of developing an artificial super intelligence.
