  1. It is great that Tim got Elon to reflect, to see progress, but stay focused on reaching orbit first. There have been many seemingly impossible problems solve to get Falcon 9 now it’s the Starships time.

  2. I myself hope it ALL FAILS, just because you humans aren’t worth spit! I’m thinking the rest of the universe already has it’s eyes out for the annihilation of the stupid humans. I hate the humans, the earth and life! Get me out of here never to return!

  3. I like that even Elon is surprised at how beautiful it is at the top; and starts taking pictures himself. 🙂

  4. I think I caught a glimpse of Yi long for a second

    I have no doubt he is going to get humanity there to mars whether or not we stay initially for long-term is up for debate, but he will get us there for sure in the next 20 years. What I’d love to see is to have you sit down with others that will create the infrastructure to live on mars. It’d be awesome to see Elons input on this topic. Getting there is seeming more and more realistic even as we look at it now but I’m still so curious how life support will work on the planet.
