In today’s day and age, Elon Musk and Tony Stark are household names. They are highly-eccentric, philanthropy-loving boffins, playboys and billionaires – rolled into one.
The unsurpassed intelligence of the Avenger’s star has led us to enhance our knowledge of reel advanced technology with the release of Avengers: The Infinity War.
The movie is similar to what Elon Musk, the CEO of Elon Musk Tesla (Tesla Inc), has successfully and wilfully attained in real life.
Brothers from another mother
As the eye of any critic would notice, Tony Stark is no less than a legend, a prodigy, owing to his heightened knowledge of science and research. It is safe to say that in the same way, we can view the self-taught computer science wonder, Elon Musk, aim for the stars both metaphorically and literally.
Tony Stark is authentically known to be the avenger who realises the importance of using technology for the betterment of humans. Just as Tony trusted his instinct and gave his all to channelise the potential of science, Elon has also been focussing on harnessing the potential of experimentation. Both, in their unique way are human boons in robotic suits!
Visionaries on a voyage
At just 46, Elon Musk is proof of the fact that to touch the sky, all you require is a vision. He has an endless wish-list of goals that never fail to amaze us. His contribution in creating a sci-fi-style futuristic world has made him the talk of the town. And it’s no surprise that people are constantly Googling to order the Elon Musk Biography, all the time to learn more about him.
As a serious entrepreneur, Musk is at the helm of a number of companies, each of which has goals firmly set on the future. He has recently been caught bragging about his underground public transport system, called Loop, which would charge riders $1 (roughly Rs 68) and cut cross-town commutes to a record low. Other than that, the young multi-hyphenate entrepreneur seems to be working on a lot of things like –
- Artificial intelligence
- Introducing Electric Autonomous Vehicles (EAV)
- Making us a multi-planetary species (Want to live on Mars?)
- Augmenting the capabilities of the human mind
By 2019, he wishes to launch an autonomous flying car, creating for the world, a revolutionary gift. In 2022, Elon will launch the first planned cargo mission to Mars aboard the SpaceX’s revamped BFR rocket. The new reusable rocket is rumoured to be the standard for SpaceX missions, as an effort to bring down the costs of space travel thus changing the future of space travel for the world, rather, the universe. Deep into the future, Elon also envisions merging the human brain with AI. All these advances in technology will become the cause of a revolution, improving the daily lives of people.
Not so surprisingly, the young mastermind and founder of SpaceX has not only leaped into space with strides of success but has made awesome advances in the technology of land transportation with the expected launch of the new Model 3 dual-motor AWD. In short, just like the mastermind Tony, he has been successful in creating effective transportation across land and space. His new release includes the following features-
- Range: 310 miles
- 0 to 60 mph acceleration: 4.5 seconds
- Top speed: 140 mph
- Price: $5,000 for AWD option
Elon – past, present and future!
His track record reeks of glory as we see the market value of SpaceX hits beyond $20 million dollars. When Elon Musk, was a former student at the University of Pennsylvania, he received heavy rewards for all the strategic investments he made in his company, Paypal, when it was taken over by ebay, earning him revenue worth $1.4 dollars. Success and fame seem to shadow him!
With an early start in 1995, Musk along with his brother, Kimbal, started Zip2, a web software company that developed and marketed an Internet city guide for the newspaper publishing industry. Gradually, he expanded his horizon to SpaceX, X.com, Paypal and Tesla. Undoubtedly, we owe the idea of a technologically-safe future to Musk. Just as Marvel gave us Tony so that we could dream of a better world, we have Elon on the earth to turn these dreams into reality!
