Tesla CEO Elon Musk appears on Colbert’s Late Show – talks about nuking Mars [Video]

MUSK_ColbertTesla CEO Elon Musk went on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show last night for a quick interview about his ongoing projects. Musk didn’t reveal any new information about Tesla or SpaceX, but he did talk about how we could terraform Mars – hint: it involves dropping nuclear weapons on the poles – and he also talked a little about Tesla’s robot charging station. Unfortunately we didn’t learn much new about the cars but we did get to see what the Tesla CEO drives [hint: It is the same vehicle as Colbert] and his security detail after the show.

Video of the show and the after show both below:
