Elon Musk, the Cheif Executive Officer of Tesla.
Elon Musk has reason to be on cloud nine. His rocket firm SpaceX won the green light from the Los Angeles civic authorities to build a research and manufacturing plant for its deep-space Starship project in the city’s port.
His Tesla is making him a lot richer. A dramatic stock rally has spiralled the value of his stake in the electric car maker to $30 billion.
However what must have sounded weird, nay bizarre, to the fans of the tech tycoon is his admission that he “is a 3,000-year-old vampire.” Move over Twilight’s Robert Pattinson: you have competition here.
According to a report in an Indian TV channel, a Twitter user shared a photograph of Canadian fighter pilot Raymond Collishaw, who was born over a hundred years ago and looked very much like Musk.

It was then that Musk delivered a smart sally: “Full disclosure, I’m actually a 3,000-year-old vampire. It’s such a trial assuming all these false identities over the centuries!” he wrote.
Musk’s claims of being a vampire have not surprised some in the Twitter world, though, who say they knew about it.
Three years ago, Musk had claimed he was a time traveller.
Elon Musk is building floating spaceports at least 35 km from the coastline that would be used for launching starship rockets to the Moon, Mars, and even hypersonic travel around Earth.

In replies to a Twitter user's question, Musk said that both the virality of COVID-19 and fatality rate are overstated.

About 13 rockets were launched from a location about 8 km from the base, which is in western Anbar province, a Baghdad Operations Command official told Reuters.
