Alison Van Diggelen Interviews Elon Musk

This lady is known for her interviewing skills. She seems to have done a little homework but not very much came out that was noticeably new or remarkable.. The last 6 minutes or so Elon talks about why private companies are good.

Now the first video is long. And boring. What got my interests were how the moderator kept asking disingenuous questions. If she has something to say please just say it and quit with all the politics. I don’t want to think about the work environment that has given rise to such people. Comments about subsidies, risks, and such with spin and innuendo turn my stomach. Fortunately SpaceX has 50 scheduled flights which only nine are for our government. SpaceX does not rely on government funding. And with SpaceX’s unprecedented level 2 redundancy there is little chance of setback.

Perhaps NASA must come to an end. Or at the very least step to the side and set the guidelines for those who can…

The second video clip appears to be SpaceX rockets being transported by standard railroad tracks and cars. By some amateur who happened to be next to the tracks as the cargo passed by. No wonder SpaceX can produce at such costs.
