    The Colbert Show announced the gusts for next week (look who's scheduled on Thursday) :)

    The Colbert Report
    9 hours ago




    This week's guests:

    ► MONDAY: Nancy Pelosi
    ► WEDNESDAY: Mary Mazzio & Oscar Vazquez
    ► THURSDAY: Elon Musk

    Colbert is usually very sharp, I wonder what question he'll be asking Elon. The first one of course will be: Are you Tony Stark?

    The new thread was merged with the old one from several years ago. It's a bit confusing if you start reading the thread from the beginning.

    Maybe the thread title can be changed to reflect that its a new show?

    I really do not understand why a notice of tonight's show would be merged into a thread giving notice of a show four years ago. That creates confusion. I simply assumed the original poster was mistaken until others made comments. I then checked the date the thread was started.

    The moderator made a mistake I think. Merging threads into a post started years ago should rarely be done...

    Video clip is available at this time for the interview... Rather short and all about Mars. But funny and worth a watch!

    Elon on Stephen Colbert - 7/24/2014

    A couple of not-very-exciting reveals:

    1. The next major version of Model S software will allow you to name your car. Elon's is called Old Faithful.
    2. Stephen Colbert owns a Model S (I don't think I've seen that in the celeb thread) and clearly loves it
    3. Elon sees people going to the international space station via Dragon 2 in '2 - 3 years'
    4. No plans to release a jetpack

    You're right, I blame the dogs acting like asses in front of the TV. Just replayed the segment and updated point 3.

    Yeah, nothing exciting. Though I didn't know the timeline for manned flights so that was new to me. He did mention in a previous episode that he drives a Model S, though there's never been a picture of it so never posted in celeb thread.

    Yes it does. Right now SpaceX is only sending satellite and cargo to the ISS, not transporting people. In a few years SpaceX will be sending astronauts to the ISS in the next generation Dragon capsule that was revealed recently.

    Indeed. Pete and his dogs changed history on me. We were headed for Mars earlier in 2-3 years :)

    Went back to watch the interview from 4 years ago; a much more haggard-looking Elon seemed to have a jolly good time back then.

    This Colbert segment isn't worth chasing down if you missed it. Good for Elon about the free PR, but that's about it.

    That is probably true about most interviews with him... At least for us here. This is because we generally already know what's coming so there is nothing new. The joys of being part of a very active community that is well knowledged.
