“People seem to want to forget the ongoing civil war in Yemen and other countries, which has claimed millions of lives and caused long-term instability, food shortages and refugee crises,” said Musk, when asked about the war in Ukraine.
The millionaire and probably the next first billionaire in the world, Elon Musk in an interview with BusinessInsider boasted that his company Starlink, can launch satellites for the Internet in space faster than Russia could shoot them down, writes Futurism . Musk is known for calling Russian President Vladimir Putin to a duel on Twitter, and even Twitter is not enough for him, so he is considering opening his own social network.
– If you try to remove Starlink, it is not easy because there are 2,000 satellites. That means a lot of anti-satellite missiles. “I hope we do not have to put this to the test, but I think we can launch satellites faster than they (the Russians) can launch rockets to shoot down satellites,” said the richest man in the world.
In a “notorious” three-hour conversation with Matthias Dopfner, Musk acknowledged that he was helping Ukraine during Russia’s “violent occupation” of the country, adding that some parts of the country had no access to the Internet other than that of Starlink.
The war in Ukraine takes up quite a lot of Musk’s interview.
– It is surprising to see that nowadays. I thought for the most part we had moved away from such things (like war). “This is worrying,” he said.
“People seem to want to forget the ongoing civil war in Yemen and other countries, which has claimed millions of lives and caused long-term instability, food shortages and refugee crises,” Musk added.
For some, Elon Musk is just a media star, but the war seems to have made him think.
– I think I can be useful in conflicts. I am trying to take a set of actions that are likely to improve the likelihood that the future will be good. And obviously sometimes I make mistakes in this regard. I do everything I think is most likely to ensure that the future is good for humanity. “These are the activities I will take,” he told Dopfner.
