Elon Musk is a self-made billionaire who is redefining the way humanity travels at ground level and through outer space.
The 46-year-old made his fortune as a co-founder of PayPal before moving on to usher in an era of automobiles fueled by sustainable energy at Tesla Motors. In 2008, Tesla introduced its first electric car for a staggering $98,000.
Today, his company is looking to change the game again by bringing the first mass-market electric car—the Tesla Model 3—to consumers at a more reasonable $35,000.
Musk’s other mind-boggling venture is a plan to colonize Mars.
Once thought of as a far-fetched idea reserved for Hollywood film plots, Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) team has been working to create a commercial rocket powerful enough to take passengers to the Red Planet.
Talk about shooting for the stars.
