A Day Before the Bankruptcy Leak, Musk Quietly Hinted at Taking SpaceX Public

So we are doing this again?

A couple of months ago, a user on the micro-blogging site posted a picture of an email that Musk sent to employees explaining why he wanted to keep the company private.

On the day before yesterday, Musk suddenly replied to the months-old tweet, saying that a lot has happened in eight years.

That is one interpretation of Musk's reply.

Has a lot changed? CNBC space reporter Michael Sheetz asked a question. Do you think that the whole of SpaceX won't go public until Mars missions are happening, with only a possible Starlink IPO before then?

Musk has yet to reply to Sheetz. Musk was against the idea of Starlink being a public company.

The leaked email Musk sent to employees argued that the company is in crisis and facing a "genuine risk of bankruptcy." The leaked email Musk sent to employees argued that the company is in crisis and facing a "genuine risk of bankruptcy."

Musk tried to assure employees that if they believed that the company would execute better than the average public company, then the stock price would appreciate at a higher rate than the stock market.

The CEO believes that public companies often go through extreme volatility, which is a fair assessment of Musk's electric car venture.

It could mean that the space company is in for a rough ride if Musk's comment is true.

Three years ago, Musk caused a huge uproar when he said that he was considering taking the company private at $420.

He was sued by the Securities and Exchange Commission for making an ill-advised weed joke.

Musk argued in a letter that SolarCity andTesla were public because they didn't have a choice.

At the time, he thought that the company was worth $4 billion. In October, the company hit a valuation of $100 billion.

The fact that as a public company, SpaceX would have to face a full gauntlet of government bureaucracy is something that the company prefers to ignore.

Has Musk learned from his mistake? He was talking about taking a dump this week, so investors will have to keep an eye on him.

Musk replied to a question about whether or not he had stayed private with "Lots has Happened in 8 Years."
