Elon Musk

Founder, SpaceX

Emily Lakdawalla and Bill Nye take the week off so that we can present a special extended interview with the CEO and CTO of Space Exploration Technologies. NASA has just awarded Elon Musk's company a contract for resupply of the International Space Station. We talk with him about his huge Falcon rockets, the Dragon space capsule, and how he builds them to be so reliable and cheap. Bruce Betts is by the seaside for this week's edition of What's Up, featuring the oldest possible space trivia contest question.
