Tesla CEO, Chief Architect, and cofounder Elon Musk (also founder of SpaceX and Chairman of SolarCity) will reportedly be making an appearance on the popular American television program “The Big Bang Theory” on November 19th at 8PM eastern time (on CBS).

(Tip of the hat here to “iorchii” on the Tesla Motors Club forum for bringing this to our attention.)
