Larry Page, CEO of Google, would rather leave his savings to Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX and founder of Tesla, than charity.
"[Musk] wants to go to Mars. That’s a worthy goal," Page said, as outlined onTED's website. "We have a lot of employees at Google who’ve become pretty wealthy. You’re working because you want to change the world and make it better; if the company you work for is worthy of your time, why not your money as well? We just don’t think about that. I’d like for us to help out more than we are."
Page also hinted at Google's much-anticipated driverless car concept, noting we're "very" close to seeing them hit the market: "We’ve driven well over 100,000 miles by now," he said.
