Elon Musk Takes Home No Souvenirs, But A Tesla Fan to Intern at Neuralink!—This and the CEO's Germany Trip Accomplishments

1 month ago 10

Tesla and SpaceX Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Elon Musk recently came home to America from his recent trip to Germany, particularly in the company's Gigafactory Berlin that will soon house production of electric vehicles and RNA molecules. Business was not the only accomplishment and endeavor done by the CEO, but he also takes home a soon-to-be intern for Neuralink.

A German Tesla Fan, who was in the right place and at the right time, traveled to Berlin to witness the CEO's visit to the country. Silas Heineken, a 14-year-old teenager, went to Berlin to meet Elon Musk, where he, fortunately, conversed with him and asked to intern at Neuralink.

Heineken posted an audio clip to his Twitter account that recorded his short conversation with Elon Musk. Silas Heineken is famously known on Twitter as "Tesla Kid Grünheide" (@TeslaKidGiga4) for posting pictures, videos, and drone shots of the famed Gigafactory Berlin for Tesla fans around the world to see. Heineken keeps an updated feed about the Gigafactory, which he shoots with his drone and edits.

If You would ask me: Whats the best thing ever happened to you?
I would response:

Translation: I met Elon today and asked him for an internship at Neuralink and he said: “Yeah, I mean its in California, but yes!”

Totally the best moment of my life! pic.twitter.com/WexZKxmM3c

The 14-year-old kid also shared on his Twitter account that this is the best thing that has ever happened to him, meeting Musk in person, talking to the CEO, and getting an internship grant at Neuralink.

Tesmania reports that Silas Heineken and his father went to Berlin for the sole purpose of meeting the famed CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and Neuralink. Fortunately for Heineken, he was able to talk to Musk despite the massive attendance of people on-site and even get an internship from the CEO.

Elon Musk had a couple of endeavors and intentions towards his now-ended trip to Germany, which primarily focused on the company's efforts to helping stem the vicious effects of the global pandemic, COVID-19.

CureVac

Tesla's CEO went to CureVac, his primary venture to the European country, to talk and work with the company to procure a new vaccine that uses RNA molecules to fight off the virus. This revolutionary take on the Novel coronavirus' vaccine utilizes ribonucleic acid molecules and turns them as components that will introduce the virus to the body and help it combat its effects. The two companies' partnership would be mutually beneficial; CureVac, to be doing the medical aspect and formulation of the vaccine. Tesla would be providing support with the company making RNA-factories that will speed up the production and tests to be done.

German Government

Elon Musk also sat down with some of Germany's government officials and discussed Tesla's plans and future in the country. The diplomatic meeting resulted in the German Economic Minister recognizing Musk's effort in investing in Germany to be the site of the Gigafactory Berlin. This meeting resulted in Musk being offered assistance during his stay in the country.

Gigafactory Berlin

Elon Musk also went by Tesla's Gigafactory Berlin to view the progress and other technical aspects of the plant's construction. Despite protestors and backlash against the erection of the factory, Musk still went by and monitored the plant's progress. Elon Musk tweeted that his trip to Germany was excellent, and he felt the support from the people and the government.

Great trip to Germany. Support from government & people is super appreciated! — Elon Musk (@elonmusk) September 3, 2020
