Elon Reeve Musk, popularly known as Elon Musk is an engineer, technology entrepreneur, and an industrial designer. He was born on June 28, 1971. Elon musk has multiple citizenships. He is a citizen of South Africa, the United States, and Canada. In this world of digitization, Elon musk is a big name due to his vast contribution to aerospace technology.
Besides his multiple citizenships, he has much more to ponder over. He is an initiator, CEO, and chief engineer of SpaceX. He is a venture capitalist, CEO, and architect of the famous electric car Tesla, Inc. Elon Musk is the founder of The boring company and co-founder of Neuralink and OpenAI and co-chairman of OpenAI also. Elon Musk is working to transform and bring a revolution in the transport system of earth and aerospace crafts.
Elon’s only purpose behind the different initiations is to adapt the use of sustainable energy which can be used and reused without any danger.
With this vision to reduce space transportation cost Elon musk launched a private American aerospace manufacturer and space transportation company named Space Exploration Technologies Corp which is most commonly known as SpaceX. The company was founded in 2002, headquartered in Hawthorne, California.
The motive behind the launch of SpaceX was to enable the colonization of Mars at a much cheaper cost as compared to other aerospace aircraft and to develop rockets and spacecraft to make the missions to earth and other planets a reality in 21st century without risking anything. Being a private company SpaceX has achieved much more as compared to other companies.
SpaceX has launched many spacecraft and dragon rockets. The very first rocket launched by SpaceX was Falcon 1 which was launched in 2008. Falcon 1 was a liquid fuel rocket to reach orbit. SpaceX made another remarkable journey in 2017 by reusing and re flying dragon spacecraft and Falcon 9 rocket. Time passed within the blink of an eye and Elon musk again made history by launching Falcon Heavy, the most powerful rocket in 2018.
Soon after, in 2019 after many attempts of flying falcon 9 and falcon 1, SpaceX managed to launch a crew capable version of dragon spacecraft for the trial version. In 2020 Elon's company will take a journey towards international space station along with NASA astronauts for the very first time in history.
After the achievement of SpaceX company, Elon Musk is working to develop a starship to carry cargo and the crew to Mars, moon, and based on the achievements one can expect beyond mars and moon too. This starship is a fully reusable transportation system.
Based on these achievements SpaceX is pondering over the multi-planet home for humans.
Another remarkable innovation of Elon musk is Tesla, which is an electric car. Tesla's company was inaugurated in 2003. The mission of Elon's other company is to transform the world’s transition to sustainable energy and produce solar energy products.
The first-Tesla product was the roadster sports car in 2008. The roadster is an electric battery-powered car, which is capable of 0-60 mph in 1.9 seconds, far more than we can think of any other sports car at that time. Soon after, Tesla launched the Model S sedan in 2012. Model S is a five-door liftback car, which received the best overall car and ultimate car of the year by Motor Trend, continuing this series, Tesla introduced Model X in 2015, which earned 5-star ratings in the National traffic safety administration test.
In 2017, Tesla started to deliver Model 3, Tesla’s third-generation car was to be named as model E but due to the trademark on “Model E” Elon announced that the car will be named as model 3 instead of model E. Model 3 was unveiled on March 31, 2016. It is a four-door electric vehicle. The car got the fame as expected and reported 500,000 reservations in 2017.
After the successful launch of three generations of Tesla, Tesla unveiled another model named model Y in 2019 and started its production in 2020 and delivered the car in march 13,2020.
The series of Tesla models S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y are one of the world’s most powerful and successful electric cars. However, one can't afford it easily but the one’s buying sports car can afford these cars at a very cheap cost comparatively.
Tesla also innovated cyber track and Tesla semi, designed to save millions of dollars on fuel cost. Despite the production of vehicles, Tesla also produced energy storage products:
Elon Musk is trending in 2020 with innovations day by day.
