Rightfully nicknamed the “real life Tony Stark”, this guy has transformed the world in ways no one could have imagined. He set forth a precedence for everyone to follow by creating revolutionary projects that put humanity in its path to be amazing and badass. We’re pretty sure he’ll be running for mayor of the intergalactic committee in no time. As long as that committee is fine with him doing weed at random interviews!
In 1999 he co-founded an online payment firm called X.com which later merged with Confinity. Elon Musk did this because he was interested in helping people do their payments through email because of its convenience and ease. The merged firm gave us the infamous PayPal service, which allows us to easily make payments online. So now, we can thank him for helping us do questionable orders without any judgments.
Elon Musk is dead set on being a hero we don’t deserve. He wants to make the world more environmentally friendly and instead of posting self-righteous speeches on social media, he went out there and created Tesla Inc. with other cool people. They helped to bring the first electric car the world has even seen. What’s more, they work on storage energy and ways to maximize use of the existing resources we have. Elon Musk wants to make Tesla Motors (environmentally friendly cool cars) widely available for the masses.
Despite him doing his very best to make this world sustainable, Elon Musk will take no chances when it comes to humanity. He wants us to advance as a species and move around space like it’s our backyard. So, he created SpaceX for the mission to colonize Mars as well as cheaper space travel. It’s one of the only private companies that have had successful space missions to date. In February, it sent the world’s heaviest rocket to space, which is a big deal considering it wasn’t NASA. On 2nd of April, SpaceX launched its space rocket Falcon 9 to the international space station to study more about the effects on space on human biology. We’re on the path to exploring more about space without relying on government bodies such as NASA thanks to Elon Musk.
Elon Musk, being Elon Musk, didn’t just stop at saving the world and creating life on mars for us. He also gave us a company unlike ever before: Neuralink. It’s a neurotechnology company that has the aim of bridging the gap between neuroscience and artificial intelligence. It’s a massive project that aims to use computer technology to learn about the brain better and to enhance its power. Musk wants to treat serious brain disorders and eventually make us awesome superheroes with unbelievable abilities.
Even though Elon Musk believes that artificial intelligence may be our biggest threat, he still doesn’t shy away from investing in artificial general intelligence. His main aim has always been to improve lives of humanity as a whole and go where only our imaginations went. He created OpenAI as a non-profit organization, which basically means that he didn’t want evil companies to gain all the power. He wants the research that is done on artificial intelligence to be widely available. Truly, a hero we do not deserve.
