Let’s starts with the famous sentence: If you lived under a rock and you don’t know who Elon Musk is read this blog and I can assure you will have a very different opinion about your future!
What if exists on Planet Earth a car that can go 0-60 mph in 1.9 sec and this car is…electric? What if in the next couple of years you can take a ticket as a tourist to visit the outer space? What if instead of taking the highway you take the “underground highway”, literally underground highway? What if I tell you that exists the possibility to live on Mars within your lifetime?
Some of the things that we just said are here, now, some of them will be real life in the next couple of years. Meet Elon Musk, it’s a visionary that creates the future of mankind. In simple words, it’s a technology entrepreneur, engineer, and investor.
Who is Elon Musk?
Elon Musk was born in Pretoria, South Africa and holds US & Canadian citizenship. In December 2016 ranked 21st on the Forbes list of The Worlds Most Powerful People. He is net worth fortune $22.8 billion and ranked the 40th-richest person in the world. Elon Musk is working to revolutionize the transport industry, both on Earth and in Space. He is an automaker and co-founder at Tesla Motors that aims at a world with cars fully electric that are for the mass market.
But the best way to describe Elon Musk is through is companies:
The company was founded in 2003 by a group of engineers who wanted to demonstrate to people that an electric car can compete with a gasoline car. Most important that the electric car is more fast and more fun to drive.
This company aims to handle once and for all the energy problems and produce clean energy generation storage products. Tesla believes that the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.
Tesla’s mission has been to accelerate the world’s transition to a sustainable energy future! The first product was Roadster sports car, debuted in 2008 and after that, the iconic Model S sedan which was introduced in 2012 and the Model X SUV with was launched in 2015.
“We should not play russian roulette with our atmosphere, we only got one,” says Elon Musk. Tesla is part of his vision of a future of clean energy.
Elon saw an idea to revolutionize the Planet and immediately started investing. Now, the company produces and sells a variety of electric cars that are echelons for what and how an electric car should look like.

Elon Musk is the CEO and lead designer of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), where he is in control of the development and manufacturing of advanced rockets, space crafts and very soon mission to Mars.
The goal that the company has is a fully sustainable city on Mars.
The success of Space X included reusable rockets and this means that is a LOT of money being saved because you don’t blow the rocket you just simply re-use.
Look here to see, even more, reusable rockets landing vertically on a pad in the middle of the ocean, is nor this crazy?
But on the bigger scale, this is nothing! Elon Musk and Space X want to build a fast lane that will compete with any company that transports people via the air with reusable rockets! Check this out!
Okay, not really enough for you?
Let’s just compute with the idea this Big Falcon Rocket (BFR) that will bring people to MARS and here are the specs:
Space X it’s a company that literally has no rival, even if there are still some private companies that produce rockets, SpaceX has more then 100 successful mission by working with NASA, US Government and by launching private satellites.
This is what ELON MUSK says:
“You want to wake up in the morning and think the future is going to be great – and that’s what being a spacefaring civilization is all about. It’s about believing in the future and thinking that the future will be better than the past. And I can’t think of anything more exciting than going out there and being among the stars.”— ELON MUSK, SpaceX

In September 2018, SpaceX announced that billionaire Yusaka Maezawa will be the company’s first private passenger to fly around the Moon in late 2023. How crazy is that? Just as an easter egg, the last person that visited the Moon was in 1972!!
Conclusion & The Future
Sending people to visit the Moon with a private ticket, getting people to live on Mars, building supercars that are not running on gasoline what else you can do, what is the next game or condition that you want to play or remedy for the Planet? What would be the next hobby?
Elon Musk has hobbies and one of them is Neuralink, which is a developing ultra-high bandwidth brain-machine interface to connect the human brain to computers, another one is The Boring Company witch aims to combine fast and affordable tunneling technology combined with electric transportation to contribute to this insane world traffic in big cities.
Elon Musk sees a problem that humanity has – and immediately build a company to fix it. It creates the future and thinks on a bigger scale than this planet.
Of course, this was not a road full of success there where a lot of failures involved. I recommend this short video made by Business Casual on how Elon Musk saved both Tesla and Space X from bankruptcy:
