A reminder that Elon Musk is scheduled to appear tonight (Wednesday, 09 September) here in the US on CBS's "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert".

Hopefully a video of the segment will be available after the show airs that can be appended here.

Oh, just the nuking of Mars.

Yup, Stephen called EM a super villain 2 or 3 times. :smile:

Stephen is still getting his balance after his long hiatus, IMHO, hope things improve on his show.

No mention at all in televised portion that I viewed of MX or M3. :crying:

Man Elon is such a badass that has the biggest balls and has taken the biggest risks and succeeded but he's still socially shy!

At least he's genuine though and not the typical CEO.

Then probably we spend to much time here and with Elon's interviews. This man can't reinvent oneself every week.

Time to relax and take a TM-Break?[emoji6]

I'm not criticizing Elon, or Colbert. Just that late show interviews always talk about Tony Stark, that he wants to colonize Mars, that he's the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, etc. There's never any really interesting questions in there that probe much beyond that.

My point is that the man is truly interesting, yet the questions are always the same. At this point Elon's a bit of a celebrity and lots of people know him (look at the autographs he signed after the show, for instance). Would be nice to hear something more.

It's kind of like watching Bjorn's videos....I mean how many times can we watch him drive from one end of Norway to the other.

Interviews like this would be nerve wracking, most people are nervous.
