The thing i lover about this is @8:49 he says - were looking for any action that can improve our probability of success, and whether that comes from me or an intern - it doesn't matter. Want to know why Elon Muck is able to do what he does? That statement right there. You have to be run by ideas not hierarchy.

Mars would be better than any other option after the moon which is the jumping point. If the moon base doesn't work than mars won't be worth trying. The moon base will work. And so will mars. And evolution will take place at both. Pluto can work. Even Venus has a small sphere of influence that inspired life vast and expansive. Hopefully.
MyessYallyah Americus
I think mars is an incorrect name. It's the dh. A distant hope. Designated hitmaker.

You've kind of lost the everyday astronaut moniker at this point. You're kind of stage 3. Stage 1 is the general media. Stage 2 is an interesting relatively unexplored place where we get a load of widespread news the stage 3 guys assumed we'd read, and then there's stage 3. Personally I'm starting to really dislike phrases such as "You probably already know so I'll skip over it"" from stage 3 guys. We didn't!

Love Elon Musk!! He is such a unique soul and I would love to just have a conversation with him. I would actually learn something from someone, not the other way around. I have one specific question that I wanna ask him! That is all.

Dude: they should just make you the head of PR at NASA... What you do for the business model (educate people/get people excited about space, probably better than anybody out right now, which in turn, can, and should lead to a bigger budget for NASA..) is so valuable... You're probably one of the most important components of the whole structure... In any case: great video, and I hope you keep it up.. Best wishes... Keith..

@16:14 Being able to "MOVE" the "MOON OR MARS" if you choose too ( Astounding.... Mind blown ), via commercial means by SpaceX & NASA. I mean just being able to casually talk about it is absolutely mind blowing . But your wrong Elon it's not the dawn of a New ERA , Its the Dawn of Human Kind as Species . RIGHT NOW SpaceX & NASA are shaping the Foundations for the future which will ultimately change Human Civilization as we know it 50-100-200 years from now those people will look back AT THIS MOMENT IN TIME just as we do " Christopher Columbus" -"The Wright brothers" - "the invention of the Automobile" -"Going to the moon " any pivotal moment in history that's ultimately changed the entire foundation of Human Existence. And AGAIN we are living RIGHT NOW through one of those times between Self driving cars , underground self automated Car tunnels , going back to the moon & to Setting foot on mars to Ultimate have humans Colonize the moon & Mars . And SO SO SO many people don't seem to realize that it's just absolutely Amazing stuff that's going to change the way our great great grandchildren are going to be able to live there lives & the Evaluation of Mankind... quote " That's one Small step for man , One giant leap for mankind- Neil Armstrong July 20th 1969, American" And that pivotal saying in one Moment of time couldn't ring more true then it did then as it does today and Elon Musk will forever be known for having set that into motion.
