So what, what advice do I have
for college graduates?

Certainly, I do want you to apply for a
job at solar city or Tesla or SpaceX

and
if not then, if that doesn't
work for whatever reason then

apply to jobs at other
companies in that arena or

try starting a company.
If you study engineering and you
figure out how to design new things

then it's relatively easy to start a company
you just need to get a few like-minded people
with you.
I have to say that the space business is quite
it's quite hard to start a
company in space business

because it's such a capital intensive business
So it may be better to do
something in Solar power

or if you're gonna do it in cars
do it in, as kind of a component supplier
for cars or something like that.

Musk has college degrees
in business and physics

but SpaceX is his first venture in aerospace.
How did you get the expertise to be the chief
technology officer of a rocket ship company?

Well, I do have a physics background,
that's helpful as a foundation

and then I read a lot of books and
talked to a lot of, lot of smart people.

don't just follow the trend
you may have heard me say
that it's good to think in terms of the
physics approach of first principles

which is rather than reasoning by analogy
you boil things down to the most
fundamental truths you can imagine

and you reason up from there
and this is a good way to figure out if
if something really makes sense
or if it's just what everybody else is doing
and it's hard to think that way, you can't
think- think that way about everything

it takes a lot of effort
but if you're trying to do something
new it's the best way to think

and that framework was
developed by physicists

to figure out counterintuitive
things like quantum mechanics.

So it's really a powerful
powerful method.

And I want to know what is the one thing
that has surprised you about your life?

Well, I simply I'm surprised
about the whole thing honestly

I certainly didn't expect to be, to be, for any
of these things to happen, honestly

Yeah, I just you know, I know I wanted
to be involved in technology

and
in fact the only reason I
started a company back in 95

an internet company was
because I couldn't get it

there were only a few internet companies
and I couldn’t get a job at any of them

I tried to get a job at at
Netscape and I sent my resume

and I tried hanging out in the lobby,
but I was too shy to talk to anyone

and it was like okay, well I guess
I'll have to start a company

cause I can't get a job anywhere.
thank you
I wouldn't say I'm fearless
in fact I I think I fear,
I feel fear quite strongly

but I
if the
if what we're doing isn't
if what I'm doing I think is important
enough then I just override the fear

so, but it's not as though I don't fear, I feel
fear like more stronger than I would like.

I think also people tend to
overweight risk on a personal level

it's one thing if you've got you know
a mortgage to pay and kids to support

and that if you were to deviate from your job
than well, how are you going to feed
your family and pay the rent?

Okay, that's understandable
but let's say you're young and
you're just coming out of college

or coming out of high school or whatever
What do you- What do you risk?
You know you're not gonna starve, I mean...
It's really, certainly not in
any kind of modern economy

It's so easy to earn enough money
just to live somewhere and eat food.

I don’t know what other people- what they are afraid of
they are mostly afraid of failure I think.
People should be less risk-averse
when there's not much at risk.

What is education like?
you're basically downloading data
and algorithms into your brain

and
it's it's actually amazingly
bad in conventional education

It's like it shouldn't be like this huge chore
like the more you can gamify the
process of learning the better.

I always had sort of a slight existential crisis
because I was trying to figure
out what does it all mean?

like what's the purpose of things?
and I came to the conclusion that if we can
advance the the knowledge of the world

if we can do things that expand the
scope and and scale of consciousness

Then we're better able to
ask the right questions

and become more enlightened
and that's really the only way forward.
What drives you?
what what is it that when
you wake up in the morning

do you see a problem and you want to solve it?
The thing that drives me is that I want
to be able to think about the future

and feel good about that
so that, you know we're doing what we can to
have the future be, be as good as possible
to be inspired by what is likely to happen
and to look forward to the next day.
So that's that's what
really really drives me

is trying to figure out how do we, how
do we make sure that things are great?

I'm gonna be so and
that's the unlined principle
behind Tesla and SpaceX

is that, I think it's pretty important
that we accelerate the transition
to sustainable generation

and consumption of energy.
It's inevitable, but it's- it matters if, if it happens sooner or later
And then SpaceX is about helping
make life multi-planetary

and doing what we can to
continue the dream of Apollo

and ultimately make contribution
to life becoming multi-planetary.

Let's talk a little more about that
I think everyone is very interested that
when you say making life multi-planetary

yeah
that's exciting
it is exciting
So what's your vision there?
You know, I think
particularly for Americans

you know, like if you think about it
America is a nation of explorers.

People came here from
other parts of the world

that you know chose to give up the
known in favor of the unknown.

So I think exploration like the United States is a
distillation of the human spirit of exploration

and
So that's why it appeals
to Americans so much

you know
you can see this when
there was a shuttle tragedy
and seven people died

and that's that's terrible but, you know a
lot of people die all the time

but why do we care so much?
because it was the dream of exploration
that was dying along with those people

that's why.
I mean I thought both Tesla and
SpaceX would fail at the beginning

You thought?
Yeah, sure
really?
of course
nevertheless you put all your money in them
I expected to lose it, and well
technically what I thought was

well I'll take half the money from PayPal
and if I lose half of it that's okay

but then of course the companies
encounter difficulties

and then, I have a choice of
either like let the company die

or put you know all the
money into the companies

and so
I really don’t want the companies to die
so I put all the money in the companies

yeah
and then I had to borrow money form
friends to pay living expenses

yes
you know just looking just for
evidence of exceptional ability

and if there's a track record
of exceptional achievement

then it's likely that that
will continue into the future.

Well, it really depends on the stakes
if the stakes are high, if it's really important
then one should, then I, you know
overcome the fear and just do it anyway

I essentially
I mean I just
drive overrides fear, but I feel the fear
It's kind of annoying, I wish I didn't
I wish I felt it less.
