Post SFS News: Hyperbola - AUDIO: SpaceX CEO Elon Musk speech and   Posted on: Sun Jul 06, 2008 1:15 pm
Rob Coppinger posts:

Space Exploration Technologies chief executive Elon Musk spoke at the UK's Royal Aeronautical Society in London on the evening of the 3 July

The approximately 10min speech was entitled "What is Needed to Extend Life Permanently Beyond Earth?" Musk also reviewed SpaceX's progress. There were no pictures or video

There then followed about a 60min question and answer session. The audio recording of both the speech and Q&A can be found in the extended entry of this blog post

Unfortunately I missed the first minute or so of Musk's speech and my digital audio device ran out of memory just before it ended

But the hour plus of audio in the four MP3 files linked to below has Musk talking about Falcon 9 and Dragon developments, the second stage problem that ended Falcon 1's second flight, his view on why Rocketplane Kistler failed, why he doesn't like space based solar power and a range of other topics

Part three of the Q&A

You will need to raise your computer's volume level to maximum probably as it is not that high on the recording, I should have placed the recording device nearer to Musk. A few of the questions might be inaudible (they were even to us sitting in the room) but you should be able to hear Musk over the inevitable background noise from the aircon

Sound quality a bit to muffled on my laptop, even with a pair of headphones, I had to give up after a couple of minutes. :(

What a Bummer. Any chance of putting a few bullets up of what he said Rob?

I'm playing around with the files to improve the signal to noise ratio, and boost the volume a bit, here are the results:

http://files.minthos.com/elon/musk_spee ... 8_mono.ogg
http://files.minthos.com/elon/musk_0307 ... rt_one.ogg
http://files.minthos.com/elon/musk_0307 ... rt_two.ogg
http://files.minthos.com/elon/musk_0307 ... _three.ogg

Not everything is audible, but it's a lot better than it was.
