Comments

IdioticProgramming : Man you really disrespected SpaceX there. Making it seem like every second launch blows up, when they've had 58 of 60 successful launches since 2010

DC9848 : Number of Teslas that have ignited are a 0.01% compared to petrol car fires even when taking into consideration the number of total vehicles.

Dheeman Rajkhowa : You call SpaceX's 59 successful missions of which 28 falcon 9 1st stages landed safely, 15 which were reflown, 16 successful Dragon spacecraft launches AND testing the world's current most powerful Rocket AND giving America access to space again instead of piggybacking on Soyuz rockets by beating the Russians at their own game JUST as "few successes"? WOW !!! Way to to go downplaying genuine stellar achievements NYT .

2LegHumanist : "A Tesla car that was orbiting space." <- Time to put some science modules into that Journalism degree.

Happy Predator : Well Elon’s lows are higher than my highs.

AMADEUZ Connected : Who did his hair transplant? Interview that guy

Nils Smith : Can’t imagine the pressure he is always under! Love how he is constantly pushing the limits of innovation!

snowtaku1 : SpaceX's Falcon 9 is the number one space launcher in the world and they're the only company to reuse their rockets, you forgot to mention those details amongst others in your very biaised video!

Arthur van der Wal : NYT proving once again what crappy 'journalism' is all about

Stratos H D : Will always support Elon. He is great and it’s changing the world for the better.

oxed brox : They will be talking about him long in the future like we talk about Einstein and Darwin now. This guy is shaping the world.

Lily Ruby : Did she just say “orbiting space”?

Mill Burray : He really is something for sure who has guts to proceed regardless of all the pessimists out there.

Tom : He can make much more money by selling his hair regrow technology.

Blue : i love musk he truly is an inspiration! its people like him who will lead us to the future

Rafael Hernandez : No highs were really spoken off such as the model 3 and the reuseability and contracts for falcon 9. The majority of these lows mark decade old problems. Smh

Seanwxyz1 : Elon Musk is a true visionary. He does what he does not for the money but for the advancement of science and technology as he sees them. I wish him well.

pokeshark : SpaceX only had recent success? it had over 50 successful launches since 2010, undercutting all the big players in the aerospace industry (Roscosmos, ULA, ESA..)

Green Green : If he can colonize Mars, like he colonized his head with hair, we will have a grand time on the red planet.

King Cobra : to succeed you must fail sometimes.

LORDE 2729 : the media will try their hardest to him down by writing and making videos and articles cuz musk dared to call them out on their cartel like behavior on shaping popular opinions.

jk1289 : disappointed, one of the poorer quality videos from nyt

RPDBY : All the best to you, Elon, you are doing more good to this world than any other living mammal.

fento r : Incoming hairline jokes, get your brushes ready, Elon just announced a new company, will be called hairsla

Michael Morrow : Just like the NY Times to show a SpaceX rocket from 2013 blowing up. They've had no recent failures and LAND the booster rocket; something NASA couldn't do and saving millions of $. WHY does the Times have to be so negative about emerging companies that are pushing boundaries

antonio volpe : the ny times sux

Tathagata Derek : Why can't NYT be a bit positive?

VY MaJoris : I have a startup company myself and I hope I don’t run into the issue he is currently facing: Trying to please investors while simultaneously working towards his cool visions.

DeadTroperSociety : A hundred years drom now, Elon Musk will be remembered as the second Tesla. I imagine there will be a monument to him in Mars once we start colonizing it. Heck, I will not even be surprised if the first city in Mars will be called Elon City.

happy feet : The guy who will be taking us to Mars😊

Djamal Dg. : Give him all money he wants I would blindly trust this guy

I'm freaking awesome : nobody is worried about costs with space X it's the cheapest in the world

R Smith : @2:00 how does one orbit space?

Antares 555 : The negative connotation of this clip is a disgrace, to say the least. Highlighting so heavily the actual minimal percentage of " lows" in Elon's achievements makes me think twice about the NYT journalism

Purple Bird : Greatest man of our time, this article sounded like it was written by someone who read other peoples news and new little of the situation however.

Bill H. : Other companies have recalls and problems all the time and have been making cars for almost a century (in general).

rahul nandan singh : brave and innovative man

Abhay Sharma : Elon should invest on fussion energy and that can ultimately make him a trillionaire because all we want is to have abundant supply of energy for ever.

Rd Fi : *G O A T*

Manolo Pinto : yeah dont show the two rocket boosters landing simultaneously while talking over the success of space X...would be way to positive

double OT : Greatest car ever? Wtf

Jaume Genaro : "orbiting space" You mean orbiting the earth or orbiting in space

Speranza Sempre : And judging by this video, the NYT have been flirting with incompetency and bad journalism! Well done 👍

made on Earth : Elon Musk for President!

Mike Fleagle : My favorite quote is, "but SpaceX has had recent successes". The reporter is straight-up wrong. They've been the cheapest reliable launch provider for several years, arguably five, at least. Hailing the company's track record as successful only "recently", taking into account their price/reliability/innovation/market-pressure, is akin to announcing the internet a success in the 2000's. To whoever it was at the NYT's that stumbled their way through this story: Did you have any idea what you were talking about? Did you realize that they literally changed the course of history when they landed the majority of an orbital class rocket capable of carrying a significant payload? Did you recognize they were the cheapest launch provider from day one, or that the reason they weren't as "reliable" initially was that they were pushing the envelope so much? (Or that the overriding reason that the Falcon 9's benchmark, the Atlas V, is so "reliable" is that they fixed all the issues with the Atlas 1 through 4 with tax payer funds?) Nope! You just glossed over it. Now that they're doing really well and have the market entirely cornered, SpaceX magically became successful overnight. Good reporting. If you want a decent, "in-the-know" aerospace commentator, give me a call...

Binesh Thoppil : Is anyone else mildly frustrated by the car " orbiting space ".

Dalton : I wish i could use my mind and share my creative ideas that I can't shut down at night everday and work with him Elon musk to change the world

Dontsay Moore : The Times is now a high school work project. But Elon rocks!

sujin raja : Genious for next generation. Love U Elon Don’t care about fake media
