BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — One of the lead innovators at SpaceX and Tesla Motors will speak Wednesday night at California State University, Bakersfield.

Elon Musk, CEO and chief designer of SpaceX and Tesla Motors, will address a capacity crowd at 6 p.m. at the CSUB Doré Theatre to begin the school's Distinguished Speaker Series.

All the space for the event has been reserved, so the university will live stream the speech.

CSUB said it plans to hold events for the Distinguished Speaker Series twice a year.

“The series is a shining example of our commitment to excellence as we work to secure powerful partnerships that help move Kern County and the southern San Joaquin Valley forward,” said CSUB president Dr. Horace Mitchell in a news release.
