On a lighter space romantic note: It’s Forever Amber…as Elon Musk and Amber Heard confirm they are an item

by | Apr 24, 2017 | On a Lighter Note, SpaceX

Amber Heard, the beautiful actress and ex-wife of actor Johnny Depp, and Elon Musk, billionaire supremo of SpaceX and Tesla cars, have effectively announced that they are in a relationship. Thrice-married Musk (once to the author Justine Wilson and twice to the actress Talulah Riley) and Ms Heard both published an image via Instagram apparently showing themselves on a date – Elon (net worth US$14 billion) was sporting a rather obvious kiss mark on his cheek.

Mind you, all this kissing evidence does not make their coupling news certain. For example, for that sort of money even your already married correspondent (net worth about fifty quid) might be tempted to kiss Elon on the cheeks (upper) himself.

Having said that, if they are together, we say good luck to both Amber and Elon after the ups and downs of their past romantic lives.

No word yet if the couple plan to go to Mars together. Musk has previously indicated that he wanted to die on the planet, under the right circumstances.  “I’d like to die on Mars. Just not on impact,” said Musk. No rapid unscheduled disassembly (RUD) for him then, just an expiration after a long retirement there.

There are some upsides in going to Mars for Ms Heard. There would be no trouble taking her dogs to the planet (Heard famously got into trouble with Depp for smuggling her dogs into Australia). Meanwhile, if Elon and Amber want kids there together (he already has six from his first marriage), producing “Martians” by conceiving on the way remains an option. By the way, while there is no problem with the in-orbit docking part, the Chinese are currently attempting to ascertain, via egg fertilisation and embryo tests in orbit, whether a conception in space is safe to do.

Finally, on the subject of the Chinese, if Amber and Elon are ever near London’s Heathrow Airport and fancy a Chinese meal (all you can eat for £20) with your correspondent and his – so far first* –  wife (*just to keep her on her toes you understand), please come along.
