SpaceX & Tesla Founder On Supersonic Planes

Tue Jul 17, 2012 3:27 am

I have a sort of fascination with Elon Musk and what he is doing with SpaceX and Tesla, (he originally founded Paypal) so I was watching an interview with him and he mentioned that one of his other goals/dreams/ideas is to build an electric supersonic aircraft with vertical takeoff/landing. He says it's not something he'll be doing in the near term, but perhaps look into it more in a "few years."

Talks about it for a few minutes here:

60 minutes video on Elon Musk and what he's doing, incase you had doubts about his abilities:
