The startup, according to MIT Tech Review, has plans to create institutes in California, Cambridge and Japan. It is also seeking university scientists and offering them salaries as high as $1 million so they can dedicate their research on how to reverse the process of aging cells.  

Musk's latest comment comes roughly a week after he took a jab at how Bezos, the founder of Amazon and space exploration company Blue Origin, spends his time after stepping down as chief executive of the e-commerce giant.
