Elon Musk to Jimmy Kimmel:

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk appeared on Jimmy Kimmel live late Thursday night.

Kimmel talked to Musk about his many accomplishments and his vast wealth. Most of the interview focused on SpaceX.

“What if we get to Mars and it sucks?” asked Kimmel.

“Mars is a fixer-upper of a planet,” admitted Musk. “But over time, we can make Mars as liveable as Earth. It’s going to take some work. It’s called Terraforming.”

Kimmel asked Musk if he has any other crazy side projects in the works, including the theoretical hyperloop.

“I should get Tesla profitable before taking on the hyperloop,” said Musk.
