Elon Musk, head of Tesla and SpaceX has triggered a wave of speculations by talking about his death in “mysterious circumstances”.
The billionaire posted Tweets regarding the situation on Monday. Musk said on Twitter, “If I die under mysterious circumstances, it's been nice knowin ya (sic)”.
Musk has been very vocal about making major changes to Twitter, especially when it comes to free speech. This could be the reason he felt it best to take to the app to tell his followers that his life could be at risk.
Musk said on Twitter that the head of Roscosmos (Russian Space Agency), Dmitry Rogozin, threatened him with consequences for providing ground-based subscriber equipment of the Starlink satellite company to the militants of the Nazi Azov Battalion and the Marines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine using military helicopters in Mariupol.
Dmitry Olegovich Rogozin, Director General of the Russian space agency, Roscosmos and a very close pal to Putin had publicly warned his rival spaceman that he would soon be made to pay the price for shipping thousands of his company’s Starlink internet terminals to Ukrainian defense forces.
Just a week after he announced the decision to buy the microblogging platform for $44 billion, Musk sparked a buzz on Twitter by making a post talking about death under "mysterious circumstances".
This is not the first of Rogozin’s spats toward Musk since the war in Ukraine began. Rogozin called Musk a “little devil” after the SpaceX CEO challenged Russian President Vladimir Putin to “single combat.”
Musk was one of the first high-profile businessmen to get behind the Ukrainian cause, and as well as his public condemnations of what Putin was doing, he also sent them numerous Starlink terminals, the SpaceX satellite internet connection service. This allowed Ukrainians independent access to the internet aiding their communications as the aggressor bombed critical infrastructure.
