Elon Musk on The Colbert Report (VIDEO)
July 26th, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
Elon Musk was recently interviewed by Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report. It’s a nearly 10-minute interview, and as you can imagine, both hilarious and informative. Some of the highlights from the interview are featured as bullet points below the video.
- Tesla Model S owners will soon be able to name their cars. Like, really name them — birth certificate and all (scratch that — I’m getting a telepathic message from Elon that no birth certificate is included).
- Elon has named his Model S “Old Faithful” (he has the advanced software in his car already, of course…)
- SpaceX aims to make rockets reusable (currently, we basically just have single-use rockets).
- Elon hasn’t worked on a jetpack of its own.
Fun stuff, even if most of it wasn’t about cleantech this time around.
