Elon Musk: The Scientist Behind the CEO (and How He Teaches Himself) Documentary

This mini documentary takes a look at how Elon Musk sees the world through a scientific and engineering mind - and how this fuels the businesses he has started. We will also take a look at how he taught himself about different industries: from banking (Paypal), to rocket engineering (SpaceX).

Elon Musk champions the use of physics as a way of thinking. And believes that more people should be innovating in manufacturing - to help build the city of the future. Rather than entering the finance, law, or internet based industries. This video also takes a look at the 'reasoning from first principles' framework - which will allow anyone to view their world, personal and business, just like Elon.

I'm 15 year old boy also from South Africa, and Elon Musk has shaped my views and ideology, because of him I'm working on creating a startup, and plan to use the funds from that to finance others, and help make humanity reach its true potential as a civilization I hope I get to work with him in the near future, I'm setting myself an ambitious goal of becoming the words youngest billionare, the current being Kylie Jenner at age 21

Edit: I made this comment after first being off some medicine I have been prescribed for a while, usually I wouldn't make a statement about my efforts and work but I wasn't in a solid place mentally

Myself afraid of the dark: running to my mom everyday for my entire childhood.

Elon afraid if the dark: "dark just means the absence of photons in the visible wavelength. It’s really silly to be afraid of a lack of photons. I am afraid of the dark anymore.”

WWeronko
WWeronko:
As an engineer with a manufacturing background I take a certain exception to your conclusion that rockets traditionally cost as much as they did (do) because of the supplier base profit needs. The space launch industry is relatively speaking, a small industry dominated by governments. For a variety of reasons, governments desire to have their own domestic launch industries. Because of the exceedingly small numbers of actual launches, for example the Ariane 5 had four launches in 2019, there is no incentive to make the rocket reusable, and little ability use the economy of scale to lower cost. Governments use their launch industries to supply jobs and tend to spread the facilities around the country in uneconomic ways. Moreover, cost plus contracts give incentive to increased expenses and delays. Private manufacturing must be profitable to survive. Government and their sponsored companies have no such mandates. Private manufacturing knows that no company has an expertise in everything and the way to success is to be the expert and supplier of your core processes. Ford tried total vertical integration from growing rubber plants and mining iron ore to the production of the final automobile. They failed in that endeavor. SpaceX has suppliers and always will. What they do manufacture with enormous agility is their core product, absorb anything relevant to the process that is new and find the world's best suppliers in noncritical parts they have no expertise in. SpaceX also inspires. The world's best engineers wish to work for Elon Musk. SpaceX gives young engineers enormous responsibility incredibly early and the opportunity to make a difference. Where a young engineer at Boeing works for an accountant CEO, is responsible for changing the copier printer ink cartridge and may become lead at developing a new window gasket. At SpaceX a young engineer can be instrumental ushering in the future.

I hope many people watch this and understand Elon for who he truly is: a visionary, a scientist, a engineer, a human wanting to propel humanity onto a better path into the future.

Too many conversations I’ve had with people thinking he’s the evil of all evils, or that he doesn’t do anything for SpaceX or Tesla but “bank roll” then. Too many lies and misunderstandings.

He’s not perfect and his personality might it be for everyone. But he’s earnest and endearing and wants the best for the planet and humanity. Whatever you think, he will go down in history as one of the greats (and I mean, he’s only just getting started!)

I think it is really intresting that each year my university and others do an event where students form groups and try to create the highestvalued buissness (just a game not a real buissness) in over a time of like 5 periodes. Each year alot of students compete and despide the guesses economics students aren't the best. It's the physicist.

Elon is clearly an INTJ who has the fortune of having the ability to assume great risk. Most INTJs are held back by their inherent rationality...Elon clearly does not as shown by his entrepreneurial pursuits in diverse industries.

He was blessed with genes that formed him into a blend of Newton and Leonardo da Vinci. We’re lucky to be able to witness it.
