These idiots from BBC only wish Musk were from the UK. They cant stand the fact that it is a South African once again leading the world in Technology. IE Dr Christiaan Barnard from Cape Town South Africa that did the first successful heart transplant in the world in the early 70's.

Well fellars and gals guess what you can't leave earth because there is no space. Sorry God is in control and you're in a dome and the only way out is death. Up to Heaven if you live for and belong to Jesus or down to Hell if you don't. No space, no planets you can live on. NO man never did and will never go to the moon. All lies straight from Hell.

Why can't we think of making this world a better place to live in rather than looking for other planets.. by caring more 'bout our environment and planet.. and fellow beings.. Sorry cuz my comment might seem a bit odd here but this is what a little girl had to say who is concerned about this wonderful beautiful planet earth .. seeing pollution and destruction reign .. Humanity mustn't be a curse but a boon for this beautiful ball of mud with a lots of complexity hidden inside
Suey (25 days ago)
Even if we don't kill ourselves with pollution and wars, we eventually will need leave Earth. Just imagine that some mass extintion happen other than sun dying or an asteroid... you will be greatefull to have another place to go to. Many mass extintions happened to earth and life somehow survive but humans won't, humans are a specie not the life it self so don't you want to keep humanity alive to keep colonizing other solar systems and spread? I would feel so bad if we extint without reaching that, I just think humanity is such a casuality in life's course and whatever comes after us probably won't escape earth never again.

Is he drunk Tony Stark or slightly evil Bruce Wayne, the destroyed world may never know.
Thomas Earl (30 days ago)
He is a vice lord that doesn't get enough sleep to keep himself out of trouble or putting others into. He may have steel balls, just don't throw them through his glass house, or truck windows.

Elon Musk came from South Africa with his mother and siblings with hardly any money.. Elon worked menial jobs to live and attend college .. he was surprised to be admitted to U Penn on a scholarship .. made extra money running parties at his house on weekends .. got accepted at Stanford grad school (also on a scholarship).. details of his story are entertaining/ fascinating, see this recent *very* unusual podcast https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxmO_QuD4Do
