Kevin Rose sits down with Elon Musk at the Tesla Factory to discuss how his life has led him from co-founding Paypal to revolutionizing the electric car industry and sending the first private spacecraft to the International space station.
South Africa-born entrepreneur Elon Musk joins Kevin Rose in an interview shot at Tesla Motors' Factory, the groundbreaking electric car company he co-founded. Born and raised in South Africa, Musk explains visiting the United States at an early age, his interest in comics and technology and how it all led to him striking out on his own back to the United States to chase opportunity. Musk continues to explain his experiences co-founding Paypal, Tesla, and SpaceX. Tesla is widely recognized for designing and shipping the first electric cars of the modern era. SpaceX is the first commercial company to launch a rocket delivering a spacecraft to dock with the International Space Station. Finally, Musk provides fresh details about his "Hyperloop" project, a new mode of transportation "kind of like a ground based Concord" that would take passengers from San Francisco to Los Angeles in just 30 minutes.
