Bill Gates accuses Elon Musk: “His ideas are wrong”

The American journalist Walter Isaacson recently published a biography of Elon Musk in which he argues that the relationship between the two tycoons is very complicated because the founder of Microsoft considers the theories about the colonization of Mars to be too eccentric.

The idea of ​​leaving Earth to live on Mars was not very comfortable for Bill Gates, and as he stated in Isaacson’s book, “I’m not a Martian.” Although he didn’t like the approach, Gates tried to understand it and as the bio reads: “I had him explain his thoughts on the Red Planet, which is a little strange.”

Electric cars are also a topic of discussion

The differences between the two billionaires not only lie outside the Earth’s atmosphere, but there is also another topic on which they do not agree with each other’s ideas: electromobility.

Elon Musk is the owner and founder of Tesla, an electric car company that is at the forefront of the market. Although his vehicles are now sold all over the world and are experiencing a continuous boom, Bill had a meeting with him to discuss the feasibility of the new electric truck range that Musk is working on.

As Isaacson reveals in the biography, the two argued over the numbers and Gates explained, “It’s an area where I clearly knew something that he didn’t.” What most distanced two of the world’s richest men after they One thing that had been talking about profitability was Gates’ purchase of shares in the electric vehicle company.

Mutual admiration

They have very different ideas, but not everything should consist of fights and discussions on social networks. Both Bill Gates and Elon Musk, despite their differences, have a very great mutual admiration, which is reflected in one of the sentences quoted in the book: “You can feel whatever you want about Elon’s behavior, but in our time there is no one who can “has done more to push the boundaries of science and innovation than he has.”
