Elon Musk’s staggering year of private jet flights in bizarre video

 

This hypnotic video shows the Tesla CEO traveling the equivalent of six times around the world in a $99 million private jet during his “excruciating” past year.

The tech entrepreneur logged more than 241,400km flying around the United States, Asia and Europe in the corporate jet, a $98.7 million Gulfstream G650ER in 2018, according to flight records obtained by The Washington Post.

There were 250 flights both for business and leisure, which added up to the equivalent of about six trips around the world.

And as the video shows, most of the action was seen in California, where Mr Musk lives in a mansion in Bel Air, Los Angeles.

“How do you like that, @elonmusk?” meme

Elon Musk has finally responded to Russia’s “How do you like that, @elonmusk?” meme over a year after it took Twitter by storm.

The memorable phrase was born after Musk launched a red Tesla Roadster on his rocket toward Mars on Feb. 6, 2018. Russian social media users reacted to the tech entrepreneur’s achievements with a touch of irony, tweeting photoshopped images claiming to show Russia’s technological supremacy over Musk.

 

Russia’s state-funded NTV news channel tagged Musk’s Twitter handle this week when it posted a video of a remodeled Soviet car nicknamed “Zhiguli” being driven backward.

 

“[H]aha ofigenno,” Musk tweeted in Russian on Wednesday, using the Russian slang word for “awesome.”

How much is a ticket to Mars?

Elon Musk’s ambitious space plans are no secret, even as his company aims to send humans into space. In a usual Twitter chatter, however, Mr Musk revealed how much a ticket to Mars could cost when ’s mission goes live.

 

In a response to a tweet asking the estimated costs for tickets to Moon or Mars accounting for reusability, Mr Musk replied that the costs are dependent on volume.

However, he said he was confident that moving to Mars will one day would cost less than $500,000 or even lesser than $100,000, inclusive of a return ticket.

Mr Musk considers this cost low enough for people in advanced economies to sell their home on Earth and move to the Red Planet, if they so wish.

Elon Musk’s former L.A. home is on sale for $4.5 million

A Los Angeles home that billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk bought in 2014 and transferred to his ex-wife is now on the market for roughly $4.5 million.

The home is listed by real estate agency Hilton & Hyland, which describes it as a “sleek, stylish” mid-century modern home in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood. The house features floor-to-ceiling windows, a saltwater pool and spa, as well as views of the Pacific Ocean and the city.
