"Not Afraid Of Dying, It Would Come As A Relief": Elon Musk

Elon Musk, the SpaceX and Tesla CEO, is not concerned about one thing: a long lifespan.

In a recent interview with Mathias Dopfner, the CEO of Axel Springer, at Tesla's factory in Fremont, California, 

Mr Musk discussed a number of topics, when he made a comment on a long lifespan.

Mr Musk said he would like to maintain his health for a longer period of time, but he's not afraid of dying.

"I am not afraid of dying. I think it would come as a relief," he said.

When Mr Dopfner asked about “longevity” and “a significantly increased life span”, Mr Musk gave a straightforward answer.

Mr Musk response was, “I don't think we should try to have people live for a really long time.

That would cause asphyxiation of society because the truth is, most people don't change their minds.

They just die. So, if they don't die, we will be stuck with old ideas and society wouldn't advance.”
