Kanye West by Elon Musk: TIME 100 | Time
Kanye West would be the first person to tell you he belongs on this list. The dude doesn’t believe in false modesty, and he shouldn’t.

He swallows and clarifies, stammering softly, "I'm looking for a long-term relationship. I'm not looking for a one-night stand. I'm looking for a serious companion or soulmate, that kind of thing."

Elon Musk Ready To Bet It All On BFR | Space content from Aviation Week, Oct 2017
plans to phase out his company’s successful Falcon rockets and Dragon capsules in favor of a reusable, two-stage, multipurpose super-heavy-lift launcher that not only can take on the satellite delivery and station resupply flights that keep SpaceX financially viable, but also fly crews and cargo to the Moon and Mars. The system, called BFR (an acronym for big f***g rocket) also could be used for suborbital, point-to-point travel between destinations on Earth.
