The Wall Street Journal recently talked about the specifics, saying Elon Musk currently lives in a ritzy waterfront estate. Specifically, he seems to be staying with another PayPal alum, Ken Howery. The property in question is an 8,000-square-foot mansion along the Colorado River. Residing in a gated neighborhood, it features a waterfront pool, jacuzzi, and private boat slip. In 2018, the mansion sold for more than $12 million, suggesting it’s cozy, to say the least.
Interestingly, upon hearing the report, Howery contacted the outlet via text message, saying it isn’t true. “Elon does not live at my home, he lives in South Texas. He stayed at the house as my guest occasionally when traveling to Austin,” the text reads. Further, the Journal also states Musk has been house-hunting, seeking a “trophy property” in Austin, Texas. This happens to be where Tesla’s headquarters are. Two anonymous sources even said Musk toured several homes in person.
Being the richest man on the planet, it shouldn’t come as a surprise he lives in a nice house. However, last year, he stated he lived in a $50,000 module he rents from SpaceX. Further, he tweeted about selling most of his physical possessions and selling stock he owned.
Elon Musk’s Newest ISS Mission Will Delve into Potentially Stopping Aging
They say time stops for no one which is unfortunately true, but Elon Musk is apparently looking for a way to slow it down, at least. His newest International Space Station (ISS) mission seeks to study the aging process in space and perhaps even stop it.
Euro News talked about the study and mission in more detail, stating SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket will launch with laboratory-grown muscle cells. Scientists plan to use the cells in space to better understand the aging process, as well as how humans age. The cells will undergo several experiments in microgravity because of what a lack of gravity does to our bodies. To be specific, astronauts lose muscle tissue faster than on Earth since there not being gravity means muscle tissue isn’t being used and strained as often.
Professor Anne McArdle, a scientist working on the study, told Euro News about the study in more detail. “Astronauts in microgravity lose their muscle mass and strength at an accelerated rate compared with older people on earth, providing a unique model to rapidly determine the mechanisms underlying muscle loss not only in astronauts but with relevance to older people on earth.”
Depending on the study’s findings, it could have “have a wider application in the future,” Malcolm Jackson, another scientist working on the study said.
Who knew the fountain of youth may have actually been in space all this time.
