Nick, interesting....

Is there a respected authority who would get a wide audience
addressing the segment's flaws? Elon Musk is a rock star right now,
with the success of SpaceX's historic flight of the unmanned Dragon
capsule to/from the International Space Station (ISS). (Musk is CEO of
both Tesla Motors and SpaceX).
