I think we can build this rocket ourselves.

“Ressi, a gangly eccentric, had been thinking a lot about whether his best friend had started to lose his mind, and he’d been doing his best to discourage the project. He peppered Musk with links to video montages of Russian, European, and American rockets exploding. He staged interventions, bringing Musk’s friends together to talk him out of wasting his money. None of it worked. Musk remained committed to funding a grand, inspirational spectacle in space and would spend all of his fortune to do it.”

Great piece by Ashlee Vancee on Bloomberg about Elon Musk and his attempt to fullfil his childhood dream of a space faring mankind..
