UPDATE: Original Youtube video (and subsequent full interview) has been pulled by CBS, and replaced by condensed "official" video above - not all below topics are now viewable.

Topics included the usual fair, as well as some not-so-usual fair:
* - Tesla electric cars * - Tony Stark of Iron Man fame comparisions * - freaky Tesla robot arm charger prototype * - whether or not he was a superhero or supervillan * - using nuclear weapons on Mars to terraform it * - recent landing failure of Falcon rocket (w/clip)Awkward moment of the interview?
