Comic #4918

1 Terry: How do we know your rocket won’t miss the moon, Elon?
2 Elon: Relax. I’ve done the maths. Or at least, I hired someone to do the maths for me. I think. Probably.
3 Elon: Did you know one decimal place of pi is enough to calculate interplanetary trajectories to less than a millimetre?
4 Terry: Is your mathematics knowledge all from social media?
4 Elon: 80% of people get this easy problem wrong!
