Elon Musk has debunked a misconception about the reason why he founded SpaceX and his massive fascination about going to Mars. He also revealed his stand on drinking coffee and having caffeine pumping in one's blood, and Musk is not that much of a fan.
The mission going to Mars is something that Musk would often talk about, especially as SpaceX will soon start on testing its full-stack launches of Super Heavy Booster and Starship, set this July.
Elon Musk: SpaceX Was Not Made as 'Private Escape Pod' from Earth
Musk was always known to entertain questions on Twitter and come up with hilarious or serious responses which explain a lot about his nature as a CEO. A user posted a screenshot from a satirical newspaper of "The Onion," where an article said that a spacecraft project is a "private escape pod" by wealthy people.
The user jokingly urged the CEO to admit if that was the reason for building SpaceX, to which Elon Musk did not directly answer, but presented a video link to his skit on SNL with Pete Davidson who played "Chad."
That is the impression that some have 🤣— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 8, 2021
Traveling to another planet & building a self-sustaining city is not for the faint of heart.
Consider the sad case of Chad (RIP) https://t.co/DhXGi65pKG
Musk said that traveling to Mars and outer space is "not for the faint of heart," and is not something you do out of randomness. For Musk, forming SpaceX was to fulfill his dream to go to space and help further its discoveries, not just something to escape the Earth because he can, as brought by his wealth and influences.
Musk is not a Coffee Lover
In addition to this, Musk replied to a meme, talking about drinking caffeine to get energized, but only ends up increasing one's heart rate but still feel tired.
Here, the CEO replied to a video link about debunking the myths of caffeine and what it does to the body, instead of the actual benefits or purpose it should bring to the one that consumes it. The excerpt is from "The Joe Rogan Experience," where Michael Pollan revealed the benefits of quitting caffeine for three months.
This shows that Musk is not much of an avid believer of the effects of caffeine, which suggests that he does not drink coffee or consume caffeine to stay awake, or to jump-start one's day.
Inside the Mind of the Multi-Tech CEO
The multi-tech CEO has revealed a lot about his perception of things with the recent answers to curious users that asked him earlier today. From caffeine belief to his real reason for starting SpaceX and going to Mars, Musk has revealed a lot about himself.
That is also shown with the satirical article he posted, which has a lot of oxymorons about a concept that can only be solved by the same thing that caused it (e.g. "Drugs Win Drug War").
