Neil DeGrasse Tyson Defends Elon Musk


Neil DeGrasse Tyson is defending Elon Musk.  The celebrity scientist spoke on CNBC Wednesday and gave his thoughts on the Tesla CEO.  Musk has come under fire recently for a controversial tweet about taking Tesla private, and for smoking pot on Joe Rogan's podcast.  Tyson said Musk needs to comply with the Securities and Exchange Commission since Tesla is a publicly traded company.  But beyond that, he said, let the man be an individual.  Tyson, who's a Harvard graduate, said he went to a highly selective college where people were really smart and really weird, and the weirdness became an element of their behavior that he just came to expect.
