Elon Musk’s Plan for Humanity

We talk about Elon Musk and his companies, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity all the time, but what is Musk’s longterm plan? How do the companies fit together and, should Musk manage to create a reusable rocket or launch an array of internet-providing satellites, what happens then? Radio Motherboard talks to Ashlee Vance, author of a new biography about Musk, about how you write a book about one of the most fascinating (and busy) humans on Earth. We even try to give Musk a call.
