Elon Musk is the man behind PayPal, SpaceX, Tesla, and SolarCity, multi-billion dollar companies he founded. Although he is now a multi-billionaire, his objective has never been to amass great wealth, but to save humanity. Writing in the Smithsonian, Carl Hoffman noted: "He does not laugh or crack a smile when he says this. There is no hint of irony." Musk's remarkable success with SpaceX in aerospace and Tesla in automobiles, is all the more remarkable because those industries have been the bastion of the big boys, companies hardly embracing of newcomers. Many so-called experts predicted his doom, only to be surprised by his success; he has accomplished what no one expected, perhaps with the exception of the man himself.
