In Their Own Words

PBS | 8:00 pm

The new episode "Elon Musk" profiles an entrepreneurial maverick who grew from a bullied child told he would never amount to anything to a multimillionaire by the time he turned 31. Part of a new breed of high-tech investors dubbed "thrillionaires" by the New York Times, Musk consistently has used his almost limitless wealth to turn his science-fiction dreams into reality, always with an eye open to the next big thing. Interviews include former astronaut Garrett Reisman, former NASA deputy administrator Lori Garner and Musk biographer Anna Crowley Redding.
