In any list of the most 25 influential persons of the 21st century there is one repeated name – Elon Musk. A person that start breaking rules at 6 years old and since his grown up years in South Africa to his revolutionary achievements in various industries and sectors, both as entrepreneur, inventor, scientists and fast forward doer and changer of the world we live in.
Elon Musk known as the real Iron Man (in fact the personality used / inspiration by the producers and screenwriters of the major blockbuster by Marvel Iron man) could also be said to be the human version of Walt Disney character Gyro Gearloose with a touch of Uncle Scrooge. If Gyro Gearloose was the most amazing inventor of Duckburg, Uncle Scrooge was the richest one! But having Elon Musk as Gyro Gearloose has a surplus: he is a real human and a fantastic inventor besides a magnate business man.
Elon Musk is a South African-born, Canadian-American citizen that moved to the United States in 1992. He finished his bachelor’s degree in economics from the Wharton School and his second bachelor’s degree in physics. He moved then to California to pursue a Ph.D in applied physics at Stanford, but left the program after two days to follow his entrepreneurial aspirations in the areas of the Internet, renewable energy and outer space.
He co-founded Zip2, PayPal, and leads now both SpaceX and Tesla, and is in the board / founder of having recently released plans for a kind of new version of the flying machines of Leonardo da Vinci: Hyperloop. Hyperloop aims to be a fast-and-cheap transportation system.
The things he creates seem straight out of a sci-fi movie or the cabinet of marvels of Gyro Gearloose. Musk, who seems to have a magically inventive mind of a unique kind, is so widely praised, that during a recent interview with Charlie Rose, Larry Page, one of the founders of Google, said that instead of leaving his fortune to charity, he’d rather give it to Elon Musk.
