It depends on the task at hand but this is pretty much spot on. Some things he is very very involved with and others he will trust the brains that he hired.

I take it you've worked with him personally in the past?

Does he have a team of assistants with him that follows him around throughout his day, or does he prefer to go it alone?

I work a ways underneath him. Structures Test Engineer but some projects he is involved with daily, others not as much. He really likes to be involved on the structures side. Although things have changed, I think we are around 5,000 people, I definitely don't see him as much as I used to. I am employee 500 ish so I have been around for a while.

He used to have an assistant, she left maybe 1.5-2 years ago. Not sure if he got another one, but she was more personal assistant style from what I saw, managing schedules, lunch, meals, travel etc. He has to have something now as things have only got more crazy with Tesla and Space X but I honestly don't know what anymore. Like I said, place is crazy now. I used to know a huge majority, now not so much.

The way he strikes me is like this, my thinking (even for my age ) is not about just today or tomorrow, I think about 5 years from now and 10 years from now. I try to live and make life go the way I want it to in the future not only living for the moment. I worry about things out to the 10 year mark or so and thats it. He seems to look at 10-50 years in the future. He doesn't say "IF" we will get to mars we can do whatever, he says "WHEN" we get to mars we will do whatever. There is no doubt in his mind that we will get there. So he thinks about what we will do when we get there, I am still thinking how will we ever get there.

And case and point the reason he makes the calls, the water landings we have made and the "technique" we have used sounded to me like an absolute crap shoot that would never work ... well I am eating my words on that one and I don't mind eating my words either, my options are worth more money now

Love it.


Quoting 
Cantrell's first contact with Musk was a cold call in 2001. As he explains to Esquire:

"I had the top down on my car, so all I could make out was that some guy named Ian Musk was saying that he was an Internet billionaire and needed to talk to me. I'm pretty sure he used that phrase, 'Internet billionaire.'"

We started taking bets as to where it would land in relation to the barge yesterday so far the two bets that are written down both have it landing on the barge at least

Tell Elon to get a drone so we can get some good shots of the reentry like NASA did with Orion.

Too far out for a drone ... I doubt I can say much but I will say that we won't be out done by a piddle little drone by Boeing
