The 2004 meeting is widely believed to be the beginning of a long-standing rivalry between the moguls and their space companies, SpaceX and Blue Origin.

While Bezos hasn't publicly discussed the meal, Musk described their meeting to Christian Davenport for his book 'The Space Barons.' Musk said that Bezos was 'barking up the wrong tree' about rockets and that SpaceX had already tried several of the ideas Bezos was proposing, calling them 'dumb.'

'I actually did my best to give good advice, which he largely ignored,' Musk said.

Bezos has made veiled critiques of Musk's goal of sending humans to Mars, while Musk has taken jabs at some of Amazon's business ventures, calling Bezos a 'copycat' on more than one occasion. SpaceX and Blue Origin have also competed over talent, patents, NASA contracts, and access to launchpads.
