Clean up the future humanity it's gonna fundamentally by advocates in two directions -- life as we know it.
You it's gonna become of the planetary what's -- -- be -- -- one planets until some eventual extinction event.
But the go with SpaceX is here.
-- rocket technology and spacecraft technology.
And and keep keep improving it every year and so ultimately.
We're were able to send people to to -- just hellish.
Elon Musk founder of SpaceX.
-- wanted to colonize Mars mean who doesn't.
But Mars aside that is nothing compared to his announcement that Tesla is dramatically expanding its network of super chargers from New York to LA.
This same hand behind PayPal and SpaceX and so city so easy.
Or brilliant to ever -- You're leader Bill Nye the Science Guy and Jonas Max Ferris Max funds dot com co-founder great to have you -- Still my best science guy let me ask you first.
Are we gonna go colonized Morris is Sammy what is -- talking before he says -- you know we've got to go colonize Mars.
Before we become extent -- elected to.
Option -- do you see those as the two options.
Why don't seem as the two options and but nevertheless.
The word -- might be an extraordinary word and he might be talking about centuries hence I mean.
A thousand years from now to have a colony on Mars yeah sounds like a long time which a couple hundred years.
Here's the deal if you if you want to live on Mars adultery but he goes live and in larnaca for a couple years to see what you think not not near the coast.
Not near the ice sheet to I don't go to go to the dry valley where hasn't snowed for a couple hundred years yeah and it's twenty below at noon but that aside.
What SpaceX is doing that so.
It's so oh admirable and worthy great.
Is they're working hard to lower the cost of space exploration.
Know that that a lot of and I wanna I wanna stick to the first went just for one more second I mean it the idea is.
Eventually we're not going to be able to live here and we have to go find another planet do you agree with that -- disagree with that.
Well I mean that when the sun gets to be but it starts via red giant and it expands out of the -- orbited the earth yeah we will have to do something else now it is presumed based on evolution that we won't work.
Much as we do now but it is our dream.
Yeah as genetic organisms that are genes will be out there.
In several hundred year a hundred or maybe million years.
What when that happened that the suns can expand so much it's gonna just prior to the -- -- -- limits on the order of a couple billion years okay I'm listening to all this Jonas.
Does it make you feel good as an Elon Musk investor -- or does it make you nervous at investor in his.
In his previous genius I mean PayPal -- sold to eBay for one point five billion dollars SpaceX.
Not turning a profit as far as right now but you know doing some great stuff.
You -- lot absolutely on fire.
What do you think you feel good -- you get a little not -- Come along hasn't had a failure since he was like twelve when he wrote this -- game and sold for like 500 bucks so it's really hard to see a pattern of failure or any risk as a shelter bought at the same time.
He's a little crazy there -- really no question about it and I and I do think they kind of keeping quiet on -- some issues.
The kind of slips out any sort of interviews you like wow this -- really from another planet.
Yeah -- you know he he believes he's personal he's not talking about a going -- -- he talk in our lifetime moved out to Mars like.
Somehow that's gonna ever worked out with the fuel problems so far that is indeed it was gonna go in the -- gonna hit here like.
If it's because a lot of dot com billionaires.
Like scifi stuff he was yeah -- -- I -- to a fantasy -- on point and -- have billions of dollars that they could literally put these things and action and starts based companies and things and dot.
For example I think she's a novelist and insurance -- -- but it anywhere on out here is I'm that he also believes in something called hyper Libya which I keep thinking this is some fake thing on the Internet but he thinks there's a way to get.
From -- he doesn't like the bolstering the California does he thinks is a way to get consensus -- to LA and under thirty minutes.
That cost less than a bullet train at some sort of like rail gun -- it's totally -- So so bill -- assays science guy do you feel like you on mosque is a pioneer he's a visionary that he thinks outside the box.
Is he a little bit crazy is -- both those things I mean what is your real science and medical opinion here.
What he's a genius okay and here's what he's doing he is hiring the right people.
I say this all the time so.
He's got this idea see a lot of people want to send science experiments to Mars.
And so there's a commercial there is a a business model for this.
And he and his people many many of whom are former NASA employees.
Are working on a system to enter the martian atmosphere at a much less nominally much less complex.
Approach using retro rockets to create a big envelope of drag rather than the supersonic parachute -- sky crane and so on.
And the sounds extraordinary.
But if he's able to or his company his colleagues are able to lower the cost of getting to Mars.
To where it's on the order -- -- picking a number out of the air a billion dollars rather than forty billion dollars.
It could very well change the world's OK and by the way you say you know his company SpaceX is -- profitable but they are providing a service.
Yeah and in United States.
Everybody -- From both sides of the -- -- I want stress and privately wolf.
I hear you and I and I think it's just there's an irony right well there's an irony because the same people that what that insist on keeping.
NASA jobs in their districts.
Are -- people that would want -- the private -- really good or we go Jonas.
-- -- -- -- -- Doable it's just something that's being that's -- PayPal was once this -- take on -- group and now became this this little money thing was successful okay.
I think so much appreciate that was a lot of I know.
Are you thank you --
