Elon Musk: Tesla boss with crazy conspiracy theory about pyramids - then he is ridiculed

Update from August 4th, 9.45am

: According to Musk, "apparently aliens built the pyramids," writes the Tesla founder and head of the space company SpaceX on Twitter.

Since then, the US billionaire's Twitter channel has been around.

Around 27,000 Twitter users had commented on the tweet by Tuesday morning, and almost 550,000 people liked the tweet.

Aliens built the pyramids obv

- Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 31, 2020

The construction of the pyramids is actually scientifically somewhat clarified.

According to research, the tombs were completed around 2500 BC.

But the sheer dimensions of the pyramids at the gates of Cairo are still impressive today.

However, Musk's crude conspiracy theories weren't so well received by scientists.

The world-famous Egyptologist

Zahi Hawass

recorded a video and posted it on YouTube.

What Musk said about the pyramids is "hallucination".

The pyramids were built by Egyptians.

There is irrefutable evidence of this, such as inscriptions from the workers in the pyramids or in the graves of the construction workers, said Zahi Hawass.

Elon Musk: Egyptian minister wants to give billionaire tutoring lessons on site

The Egyptian minister Rania Al Mashat also turned to Musk.

The former tourism minister wrote on Twitter that he and his Space X team have been invited to see for themselves.

Musk is famous for tweets that are often not meant to be serious.

It was not until July 30 that the colorful Tesla founder had informed his followers about his relationship with Bill Gates.

The rumor that he and the Microsoft founder are lovers, "is completely untrue".  

Tesla: will Elon Musk soon become the highest-paid executive on the planet?

First report from July 13th:

Munich - Tesla boss

Elon Musk

should be in a really good mood at the moment. * At the beginning of July, the electric car pioneer delighted investors with unexpectedly good delivery figures - and thus further heated up the share price.

On Friday (July 10th) alone,

Tesla shares


10.8 percent to $ 1,549, marking a new all-time high.

On Monday the paper rose another eleven percent to $ 1,710.

This has been going on for months now.

Anyone who had the share in their custody account a year ago can look forward to a price gain of a good 550 percent.

The carmaker is now a real heavyweight on the stock market.

The company now has a market value of the equivalent of 245 billion euros.

For comparison: The three German car

manufacturers BMW





come together to just under 150 billion euros.

Tesla boss Elon Musk is getting richer

Tesla's rapid price increase not only brings investors massive price gains.

Group boss Elon Musk, who most recently made headlines around the world with his other company Space X, is also making the development richer.

Because if Tesla's stock market value stays above $ 150 billion on average over six months, the Tesla boss will receive additional

stock options


Stock options give the holder the right to buy shares at a previously determined price up to an agreed date.

Unlike most other corporate bosses, Musk only receives stock options instead of a regular salary.

Musk had already secured the first tranche in May when Tesla's stock market value exceeded $ 100 billion.

Now the second installment is within reach.

For this, the market value would have to remain above $ 150 billion by the end of July.

Hardly anyone doubts that.

According to the contract, the colorful entrepreneur is allowed to buy 1.69 million Tesla shares per tranche at a price of 350.02 dollars each.

At the current share price of 1549 dollars, there are currently around 1200 dollars in profit per share.

With 3.38 million shares that would correspond to a bonus of around four billion dollars.

Tesla: Elon Musk can win more billions in bonuses

But even that might just be the beginning.

Because after the option program decided by the Tesla shareholders in 2018, Musk can hope for a total of twelve tranches.

To do this, further key figures have to fall.

Musk can secure around 1.69 million additional stock options once Tesla's stock market value averages over the $ 200 billion threshold for six months.

In addition, bonuses beckon upon reaching annual sales of $ 30 billion or an operating profit of at least three billion dollars.

Analysts easily trust the company to do that.

Just recently, for example, the Swiss bank

UBS raised

its estimate for Tesla sales in the current year by around three billion to 31 billion dollars.

The experts see the operating result of the long-loss-making e-car manufacturer above the $ 3 billion mark in the coming year.

Elon Musk is on his way to becoming the best-paid manager in history

If so, Musk could become the highest-paid manager in history.

He is already one of the richest people on the planet.

The 20.8 percent he holds in Tesla alone is currently worth a good 50 billion euros.

If everything is not wrong, there is still something on top.

In quick succession, the car giants BMW and Daimler present frightening numbers.

At electrical pioneer Tesla, however, things are going great.

Now Musk can look back on a successful mission for his space company SpaceX.

After more than two months in the ISS, two NASA astronauts safely returned to earth in the "Endeavor" capsule.
