An influential Tech Leader
Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX
Space science, or to be precise can be called interplanetary travel was one of the major issues faced by our world, that continued to spend a huge capital in spacecraft design and development. One-stop solution to the issue was given by the great tech leader of this era “Elon Musk”, who proposed to develop a reusable rocket which in return can save an amply of capital and can make interplanetary motions affordable. As per the experts of space science, the reusable rocket was impossible and also not feasible. But with the impeccable knowledge and a drift towards innovation, Elon proved that nothing is impossible.
Elon Musk proved his point with the first successful landing of the first stage of Falcon rocket back to the launch pad, in the year 2015. This step of Elon Must with his innovative team of SpaceX turned the concept of space science by giving it a new chapter of reusability of rocket and making it cost-effective.
The journey from a schoolboy to the preeminent tech leaders
A brilliant child, at the age of 10 gained an interest in computer programming, taught himself and gained affirmative output with which he developed a video game called Blastar based on BASIC coding. At the age of 12, he sold this game to a magazine for approximately $500, the very first step of Elon Musk in the world of technology.
A real journey as an entrepreneur started when he headed to Stanford University in California to pursue a Ph.D. in energy physics. But this educational chapter lasted no longer, just in a couple of days he dropped out to be a part of it by launching his first company, Zip2 Corporation.
The career of Musk is a perfect example of leveraging technology and entrepreneurship to find out a perfect solution for the problems.
His second biggest achievement after Zip2 was in the form of online financial services served under a new brand name called X.com. Later on, this was merged with Confinity that owned a money transfer service called PayPal. As the company was much focused on PayPal, hence in 2001 this online service was named PayPal, which is now owned by eBay.
Further life of Elon Musk continues as the proud CEO of multiple renowned companies, such as SpaceX, Tesla, SolarCity, Hyperloop, OpenAI, Neuralink, The Boring Company, Pravduh.com, and so on. Each of these organizations has a great contribution in transforming the world to give it a better tomorrow.
