For over four years, Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg have clashed over topics as varied as artificial intelligence and rockets.
The two moguls — one of whom leads Tesla and SpaceX and the other of whom leads Facebook — haven’t exactly kept their rivalry a secret. When a SpaceX rocket explosion destroyed a Facebook satellite in 2016, Zuckerberg issued a heated statement saying he was “deeply disappointed” about SpaceX’s failure. And when Facebook became embroiled in the Cambridge Analytica scandal, Musk publicly deleted his companies’ Facebook pages, tweeting that the company gave him “the willies.”
