Today I listened to one of my favorite scientists: Elon Musk. I am a huge fan. He is doing so much (not only in terms of exploration to space), but right here on our very own planet. His effort to send a rocket ship to Mars is definitely interesting. The rocket ship will be called Starship, and it will be capable of carrying 100 people to the red planet. Here is an article about it: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-55564448 On this podcast Lex and Elon talk about things like potential civilization on Mars, what a government would be like, currency, and how many people would possibly stay. They also talk about Elon’s driverless cars through Tesla and discussed that product in length along with his Neuralink company. Neuralink is aimed at curing diseases such as Alzheimer’s and many other brain diseases where messages from the brain to the spinal cord are damaged. They also talk about the “Tesla Bot” a concept for a sleek, 125-pound humanlike robot that will incorporate Tesla’s automotive artificial intelligence technology. It will plan and follow routes, navigate traffic—in this case, pedestrians—and avoid obstacles. It will be built for our safety. It will also do many jobs that humans don’t want to do. There could be millions of them one day! Here is the link to the video in case you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxREm3s1scA

Elon has always seemed to me like he traveled back in time to earth from 150 years in the future.
It’s fun to hear him talk about almost anything.
