“I have a design for a plane,” said Elon Musk in a wide-ranging interview for the Joe Rogan Experience podcast broadcast live Thursday night on YouTube.
Musk thinks his electric airplane would be better than current planes, capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and supersonic flight at high altitudes.
“Electric cars are important, solar energy is important, stationary storage of energy is important,” said Musk.
Musk then became visibly emotional in describing our addiction to fossil fuels, calling it the “the dumbest experiment in human history.”.
Musk quickly conceded, however, that he has more important things on his plate that prevent him from taking his electric plane design further.
