Who is Elon Musk? Most people would refer to him as the real-life version of Marvel’s Tony Stark aka Iron Man, but he can also be classified as a successful business entrepreneur and space travel zealot who hails from South Africa. After dropping out of Stanford University during the internet boom of the ninety’s, Musk became the majority shareholder in PayPal, before eventually selling it and moving ahead to establish SpaceX. He then also became the CEO of Tesla Motors. Elon Musk currently wishes to colonize Mars and aims to make space travel cost far lesser than what it costs today.
