I'm more interested in, you know, SpaceX and Tesla, what's going to happen with our intergalactic possibilities.— Lana Del Rey
Tremendous Spacex quotations
We have a strict 'no a-hole policy' at SpaceX.
And we fire people they are. I mean, we give them a little bit of warning. But if they continue to be an a-hole, then they're fired.
To our knowledge, life exists on only one planet, Earth.
If something bad happens, it's gone. I think we should establish life on another planet-Mars in particular-but we 're not making very good progress. SpaceX is intended to make that happen.
SpaceX is only 12 years old now. Between now and 2040, the company's lifespan will have tripled. If we have linear improvement in technology, as opposed to logarithmic, then we should have a significant base on Mars, perhaps with thousands or tens of thousands of people.
It is true that SpaceX is partially a government contractor, but it would be unfair to say that SpaceX is entirely a government contractor.
On one of the SpaceX flights, we had a secret payload: a wheel of cheese.
We flew to orbit and brought it back, so it was the world's first 'space cheese.' It was, in part, a tribute to Monty Python.
The pace of progress on Mars depends upon the pace of progress of SpaceX.
I feel very strongly that SpaceX would not have been able to get started, nor would we have made the progress that we have, without the help of NASA.
I'm trying to construct a world that maximises the probability that SpaceX continues its mission without me.
SpaceX has the potential of saving the U.
S. government $1 billion a year. We are opposed to creating an entrenched monopoly with no realistic means for anyone to compete.
I started SpaceX with the expectation of failure.
I want to make rockets 100 times, if not 1,000 times better.
The ultimate objective is to make humanity a multiplanet species. Thirty years from now, there'll be a base on the moon and on Mars, and people will be going back and forth on SpaceX rockets.
