Vietnamese translation published by Nha Nam:

Chúng ta đều biết rằng các mỏ dầu đang cạn dần, và nguồn năng lượng này còn là nguyên nhân cho nhiều bất đồng trên thế giới. Vậy làm thế nào để tạo ra nguồn năng lượng bền vững, không còn phụ thuộc vào dầu mỏ nữa? Một vấn đề cũng đang khiến cả thế giới quan tâm là ô nhiễm môi trường, không gian sống của con người ngày càng hẹp lại, trong khi nhu cầu của con người ngày một tăng lên. Nếu một ngày Trái Đất không còn là nơi trú ngụ nữa, loài người sẽ đi về đâu?

Elon Musk đang trả lời cho hai câu hỏi lớn lao đó, bằng cách sáng lập ra Tesla – công ty đã và đang sản xuất ra những chiếc xe điện không chỉ thân thiện với môi trường mà còn đáp ứng người dùng cả về tốc độ và kiểu dáng; ông cũng sáng lập Space X – công ty hàng không vũ trụ, lần đầu tiên trong lịch sử đã hạ cánh thành công một chiếc tên lửa lên con tàu không người lái, và sẵn sàng cho hành trình tiếp theo.
