As the Apple TV+ series ‘For All Mankind’ wraps up its fourth season, lead actor Joel Kinnaman offered Variety his insights into the show’s portrayal of space exploration and how visionaries like Elon Musk can take lessons from them.
In the interview with Variety, Kinnaman suggested that Musk, who is currently leading the AI startup xAI, could benefit from a more concentrated effort on space projects like SpaceX rather than focusing on X (formerly Twitter):
“I think it would be great if Elon just forgot about X and just focused on SpaceX instead. It’ll do a lot more good. That is such a waste of his time. … It’s an exciting time now because I think that in the past five to 10 years, we’ve seen more activity, and we’ve come so much further than the previous 30 years. So, finally, things are starting to happen.”
He then added that the recent news about UFOs excited him and hoped there would be more to come soon:
“I also hope that we get more of these UFO revelations and more whistleblowers come out. It’s really fascinating that it seems like there’s something really there, when you dive into it and hear these people with top-level security clearance that are blowing the whistle after the Schumer amendment.
I have this hope that if we as a world really got the information that we are being visited by outside intelligence, that could be something that unified us and made us look up into the stars more than look at these internal power struggles and more resources would be put on space.”
