Whether you like him or hate him i’m sure every one knows about Elon Musk but for those who live under a rock, He is the founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX; a co-founder,a Series A investor, CEO, and product architect of Tesla Inc.; co-chairman of OpenAI; founder and CEO of Neuralink. The man is known for many things but here are three things you may not know about him.
He owns Wet Nellie from The Spy Who Loved Me:
Elon recalls watching The Spy Who Loved Me as a child and his fascination with this vehicle that could turn in to a submarine by the touch of a button never ended. Maybe that’s why he paid a whopping $997,000 for this beauty and though many laughed at the boyish desires of a man with means, Musk’s inventor spirit was actually the reason of the decision to purchase the decades-old car.
He inspired Tony Stark in Iron Man:
TIME released their annual TIME 100 list in 2010 and the task of handling the written work TIME picked director Jon Favreau now at first this seemed a little weird but later on it became clear why he was picked, Favreau revealed some key points about the making of his film. Faverau said “Elon Musk makes no sense — and that’s the reason i know him”. “When I was trying to bring the character of genius billionaire Tony Stark to the big screen in Iron Man, I had no idea how to make him seem real. Robert downey Jr suggested ‘we sit down with Elon Musk and he was right’.”
His mother is a well-known mode:
Maye Musk started modelling at the the young age of 15 and has never slowed dowb despite her son being a billionaire and her advancing age. She is best know for appearing “pregnant” on the cover of New York Magazine in a pose reminding us of Demi Moore and photographer Annie Leibovitz’s iconic photograph for Vanity Fair. She has also done work with Virgin America ad campaign and has appeared in Beyoncé’s video for Haunted.
Elon Musk one of the few people that actually inspires my sense of adventure, exploration and amazement not only on about planet but beyond it too.
