ELON MUSK’S REAL ESCAPE

on Twitter





R.I.P
“I would like to die on Mars. But not in the impact.”


WORK IN PROGRESS
“We need to have a big permanently occupied base on the moon, and then build a city on Mars and become a spacefaring civilization. We don’t want to be one of those single planet species, we want to be a multi-planetary species.” 


PLAN B
"If we make life multiplanetary, there may come a day when some plants and animals die out on Earth but are still alive on Mars," he tweeted. Bezos is also aiming to build extraterrestrial colonies, but in space rather than on Mars.”



MARS ONLY
“Mars is the only place in the solar system where it is possible for life to become multi-planetary.”


BIG FAIL
“If things are not failing, you are not innovating enough.”


BROKEN WORLD
"Any product that needs a manual to work is broken."


WISHES
“If humanity doesn’t land on Mars in my life time, I would be very disappointed”. 


EVEN IN LOVE
“Ad alcune persone non piace il cambiamento, ma è necessario abbracciare il cambiamento se l'alternativa è il disastro”.


STARTING POINT
“To make an embarrassing admission, I like video games. That's what got me into software engineering when I was a kid.
I wanted to make money so I could buy a better computer to play better video games - nothing like saving the world.”



@
“I do love email. Wherever possible I try to communicate asynchronously”.
