Elon Musk Keynote - Satellite 2020

Elon Musk delivered the keynote at Satellite 2020. These were my notes with some comments.

  • focus on achieving something soon, if the schedule is wrong, the design is wrong
  • the bigger the rocket the more affordable the service
  • learning is inherently accessible to everyone
