In recent years, much has been reported on the so-called billionaire space race as Musk – with Space X – and Bezos – with Blue Origin – explore alternative ways to sustain human life in space and on other planets.
The 50-year-old then ripped into Bezos’s work ethic, adding: “He does not seem to be willing to spend mental energy getting into the details of engineering. The devil’s in the details.”
Musk then compared himself to the 57-year-old and revealed how he spends 80-90 hours per week at work managing projects at Space X and Tesla.
“In some ways, I’m trying to goad him [Bezos] into spending more time at Blue Origin so they make more progress,” he said. “As a friend of mine says, he should spend more time at Blue Origin and less time in the hot tub.”
