"So many children dream of fast cars and rocket ships, but few actually grow up to build them -- and change the world in the process. Scott Pelley profiles Elon Musk, who at 42 years old is a billionaire Silicon Valley entrepreneur."
Though you may not know the name, you may know his invention (PayPal) which you use every day. Now he wants you to drive forever for FREE on sunlight with a full Zombie-appocolyse award and highest government safety rating.
His sister told us "It's like he traveled into the future and came back to tell us ll about it. "Stepping into a Tesla is like using an iPhone whereas before you only had a desk phone."
"Musk feels the need to recolonize mankind on Mars because the Earth is finished.It's his calling. Someone's got to do it.

In the interview Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk tells Scott Pelley about paying back a loan from U.S. taxpayers early and with interest
In case you were out cold the past month or so, here’s news: Jimmy Fallon is now the host of the Tonight Show. And, if you've heard of Tesla, the electric car company, Elon Musk is its founder – plus the founder of a rocket ship company, SpaceX.
Jimmy Fallon was born in 1974. I was born the same year. Elon Musk was born in 1971. So, I connected to both in one way -- we are GenXers. Or, as I like to say, the lost generation.
Generation X has just 46 million members, sandwiched between 80 million baby boomers and 78 million Millennials, making it a dark-horse demographic "condemned by numbers alone to nicheville" according to Jeff Gordinier, author of X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything from Sucking. We are old enough to remember typing classes and knowledgeable enough to track changes in Microsoft Word.
But, one thing is clear. We are no longer 20-somethings, or 30-somethings (at least Fallon and I will turn 40 this year). So, what is clear is that the future – at least for the next decade or so is really up to us.
We always bring back and make convenient the best parts. Enjoy- (link inc a see embedded video doesn't appear on whatever device yo are trying from)
