Elon Musk on the Colbert Report

0

Elon Musk appeared on the Colbert Report to discuss Space X’s reusable rockets for trips to Mars and the International Space Station, the future of Tesla’s Model S software and, of course, jet-pack technology.

Musk perfectly summed up his view of the world after being prodded by Colbert on his decision to allow companies to use Tesla’s patents.

“If we’re all in a ship together and there are some holes in the ship and we’re sort of bailing water around and we have a great design for a bucket – even if we’re bailing out way better than everybody else – we should probably still share the bucket design — cause we’re all going to sink.”
