Elon Musk: The City of the Future

From SpaceX and Tesla, to his own school (Ad Astra), Elon Musk is developing companies and ideas that look to bring humanity forward.

This mini documentary video takes a look at a number of Elon Musk's projects and ideas. And tries to envision what the city of the future will look like.

Such as how self driving electric cars will allow for smaller tunnels. Making way for The Boring Company to develop a mega network of underground tunnels.

Other topics covered include:
• How the future of self driving cars and transportation (Tesla Semi) will affect our daily lives and jobs (Universal Income)
• How all of humanity can go renewable with 100 Tesla Gigafactories
• If SpaceX can make space rockets as reusable as airplanes, we can fly people from 1 side of the world to the other in under an hour (Starship)
• Or how a better form of transportation would be the Hyperloop
• How Elon Musk's brother, Kimball Musk, is developing vertical farming in cities using shipping containers, and the tech could be used in colonizing Mars
• There being a global internet provided by a constellation of satellites (SpaceX Starlink)
• And how in the future, you won't be able to tell the difference between video games and reality (and asking if we are in a simulation)
• And that we need to keep up with artificial intelligence by connecting our brains to a computer (Neuralink)

Videos Mentioned in the Video

• The Future of Farming is in Our Cities

• Amazon's City of the Future

• Matrix Number Effect

Elon Musk’s prediction for the future of energy in Australia | 60 Minutes Australia

Subscribe here: Full Episodes here | Shock and poor (2017)

Who hasn’t been shocked by a recent electricity or gas bill? And who isn’t infuriated that power prices have risen so sharply? In a country as abundant with resources as ours it defies logic that there are now some Australians who can’t even pay for the electricity or gas to cook a simple meal. While federal – and state – politicians scramble to act, Elon Musk, the American billionaire with the brilliant mind, says he wants to help. In an exclusive interview with Liz Hayes, Musk says Australia’s energy emergency is easily fixable, and his construction of the world’s largest lithium ion battery at Jamestown in South Australia is proof.

This is Elon Musk’s key to Tesla’s future

Elon Musk's Gigafactory is arguably the most important thing that Tesla makes. The 1.9 million-square-foot factory in Sparks, Nevada, is only 30 percent complete, but it’s already on track to make 60 percent of the world’s lithium ion batteries — and Tesla plans to build more Gigafactories around the world. The Verge took a look inside.

It's Already Too Late - Elon Musk

Taken from an historic conversation on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast. Elon talks about the future of AI, our survival as a species, and the sombre reality of being in his shoes.

Superintelligence: Science or Fiction? | Elon Musk & Other Great Minds

Elon Musk, Stuart Russell, Ray Kurzweil, Demis Hassabis, Sam Harris, Nick Bostrom, David Chalmers, Bart Selman, and Jaan Tallinn discuss with Max Tegmark (moderator) what likely outcomes might be if we succeed in building human-level AGI, and also what we would like to happen.

The Beneficial AI 2017 Conference: In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI. We hosted a two-day workshop for our grant recipients and followed that with a 2.5-day conference, in which people from various AI-related fields hashed out opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we can take to ensure that the technology is beneficial.

Elon Musk's Million People Journey to Mars | 4K NASA Science Documentary | It WILL BE Done by 2042

Musk plans to send a SpaceX rocket to Mars, with cargo only, by 2022, according to the SpaceX website. A second mission, which would take more cargo and crew, is targeted for 2024. Musk has also said he'll send a million people to Mars by 2050.

Elon Musk Mars City by 2050

Elon Musk Mars City by 2050

Elon Musk is very keen to get us to Mars, really fast. Musk had a dream of Mars being colonized since he was probably in his teens, however he is only now able to materialize his dreams and ideas. The idea of Mars city might seem odd to some, especially knowing how difficult is to build a simple habitat on Mars, let alone the entire city!

Elon Musk has a plan, however his plan might take some doing. Yes, it will be possible to build a Mars city, well I wouldn’t call it a city, more of a tiny hamlet, but could be done. The Starship will be critical to Musk’s plans. The stainless steel ship is designed to send up to 100 people in space at once. Raptor engine that powers the Starship, uses liquid oxygen and methane and through simple chemical conversion it’ll be possible to convert Carbon Dioxide on Mars in to fuel, using fuel plants that could be integrated in to Starship or sent to Mars beforehand.

The orbital synchronizations Musk is referring to is the point when the Earth and Mars are in closest alignment, which occurs around every 26 months. That’s the ideal time for a launch, as the distance between the two is reduced to around 50-55 million kilometres. Because the two planets follow an egg-shaped orbit, not every alignment is equal.

Elon musk hoped take advantage of the upcoming synchronizations, due in 2022 and 2024. However, this timetable was somewhat optimistic, the plan was to send two unmanned Cargo Starships to Mars in 2022, with each one capable of carrying 100 tons of cargo ready for the first humans. The first manned mission would take place in the second synchronization, 2024, sending two manned Starships alongside two further cargo Starships. The six ships in total would carry around double the mass of the International Space Station.

Musk admitted himself his plan was a long shot. He has since announced plans to send Japanese billionaire Yukazu Maezawa, alongside six to eight artists, on a trip around the moon in 2023. Subsequent comments suggest this could be Starship’s first manned mission.

Each orbital synchronization would likely be dedicated to building out the base, initially focused on life support and fuel production and gradually adding more habitats and support structures and large farm modules for ever growing Martian community. If all goes well, Mars colony could take shape in 10 to 12 years from now.

Recently I’ve posted video of amazing Mars Habitat, entirely built by a swarm of smart Mars rovers that will 3D print the very first habitats on Mars for people to live in. The concept struck me as most ingenious and very smart use of limited resources and absolute reliance on 3D printing and sustainability. If Elon Musk could produce something similar, and just scale it up to industrial scale, he could theoretically with just 2 Starship ensure sizable community on mars can be sustained using only local resources, including water that can be extracted from Martian regolith and air, as well as fuel for Starships.

The longer term, large farming domes and habitats could dominate future Martian landscape, with thousands of people living of the land, literally. I remain very hopeful we could see first humans on their way to Mars in not too distant future.
