Best 45 minutes spent watching something in a LONG time. WATCH ET. (If you're even remotely interested in anything to do with #Engineering
, the #environment

- It's AMAZINGLY inspirational. #Musk
poured all his final funds (40M) from his #PayPal

hit and how he managed to pull himself out of multiple concurrent spirals to doom (including being divorced twice w/ 5 children, and all 3 of his companies coming close to bankruptcy), despite people (Including #TopGear
) constantly turning him down. He also migrated from South Africa to the US and now provides a lifetime of free power to the Tesla network of #cars
- 2050: Australia gets its first Tesla car, US: we're on Mars, Yippee yo yay!
- The Director of #IronMan
(True fact). :) (#Elon actually appears for a few seconds in Iron Man 2 just before the race track scene).
- Reminds me of #SteveJobs
' quote of 'You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.

Props to Elon Musk and his teams making a significant global difference from essentially nothing but the desire to learn fast and read as a child. Kind of reminds me of Google of the mech eng world. Hopefully one day we'll have Cold Fusion reactors.bit.ly/1Dj90CB #SpaceX #SolarCity #TeslaMotors #Solar #Power #Electricity #ClimateChange #GlobalWarming
