    "Estimated development cost for BFR is about 5 billion dollars."
    "Next question?"
    "How much will BFR cost to develop?"
    I swear these journalists need to pay attention or think about their questions. Or both.

    Been working and living in Japan for a while now... A week ago no one knew Elon Musk, his name, or SpaceX. Now I think the entire country knows his name, and he's on TV every damn night. Way to punch your way through to Japan Elon, he was a great choice.

    The Japanese guy is not bad. He was actually clear as can be for a non-english speaking dude. He must have practised hard for that decent presentation.

    This is one of the most beautiful things to be announced ever in my lifetime. To see a person, not part of any government related or funded mission/adventure, pay to take some of the most beautiful minds, in his eyes, is awe inspiring. I hope we see a trend in flashy space travel.

    These journalists are obsessed with money. Who cares how much he's paying?

    Elon is so cute, you can actually tell when he gets physically excited talking about certain topics, he turns into a small boy for a moment, talking and dreaming about SpAce, and sPaCeSHeepss! Shows the adorable human side of him! 1:40:12min He came a long way from dreaming as a boy, now he's actually living out his dreams.. Awww..

    Maybe flat-earthers are saying the earth is flat so they could hitch a ride on the BFR.

    Elon seems like such a genuine guy. In his video with MKBHD, he seemed so excited to share the inner workings of his Tesla car factories. And here, it seems like he's pretty nervous in his presentation. It makes me feel like Musk is just a successful nerd.

    I always find it amusing how uncomfortable Elon is answering all the news reporters, but the moment Everyday Astronaut asks about the engine change and the reasons for it, you can see just how easily Elon slides right back into his comfort zone.
