Spacy Elon Musk Aims Higher and Higher

Elon Musk, founder, CEO, and lead designer of SpaceX, has identified the person slated for the company's initial private passenger flight around the moon. Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa said he plans to invite six to eight creative people to accompany him on this first-ever private commercial trip to the moon.

According to an Associated Press article by Christopher Weber, "Musk said the entrepreneur, founder of Japan's largest retail website and one the country's richest people, will pay 'a lot of money' for the trip, but declined to disclose the exact amount."

During an earlier podcast interview, the AP article says, Musk "took a hit off an apparent marijuana-tobacco joint ..."

Then, with no apparent recognition of the irony, Weber follows up with, "Two high executives announced departures from [Musk company] Tesla ..."

Probably unintentional ... but maybe Mr. Weber has a dark sense of humor.
