If one were to goad Elon Musk into being a passenger on his next "starship" launch, by appealing to his inflated ego, and he dies in the resulting explosion, could you be charged with a crime?

You could tell him that the only reason he does not climb into his own rocket, is that he knows it is all a scam to steal money from investors and the taxpayers.

No, the choice to enter the starship is his.

No. Only if it was proven that you sabotaged the craft to explode.

Yes in the states you can sue anyone for anything. Even if there are too many O’s in your Cheerios.

However you mentioned charged, and I agree with @elbanditoroso

Sounds like you just publicly goaded him. Now we wait and see.
