A presentation on Elon Musk
Transcript of A presentation on Elon Musk
Elon Musk was born June 28, 1971 to his Canadian English mother Maye Musk and South African-born British father Errol Musk.
His parents divorced in 1980 and afterward he lived mostly with his father in South Africa.
Musk's entrepreneurial skills and back ground in computers began in 1983 when at age twelve he taught himself computer programming and sold the code for a video game called Blastar. for five hundred dollars.
Musk emigrated to Canada in 1988 at age seventeen after acquiring Canadian citizenship through his mother.
At age ninteen, Musk was accepted into Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario for undergraduate study, and in 1992, after spending two years at Queen's University, Musk transferred to the University of Pennsylvania. In 1995, at age twenty-four, Musk moved to California to begin a PhD in Applied physics at Stanford, but left the program after two days to pursue his entrepreneurial aspirations in the areas of the Internet, renewable energy and outer space. In 2002, he finally became an American citizen.
Musk earned a fortune early during his entrepreneurial exploits with zip2 and Paypal.
Musk then went on to found SpaceX.
SpaceX is short for Space exploration technologies and is the first commercial entity to put a satellite in orbit and dock with the international space station.
Musk was influenced by Isaac Asimov's Foundation series and views space exploration as an important step in expanding—if not preserving—the consciousness of human life.
Musk also has a number of ambitious projects in the works. Among them are Hyperloop and placing a green house on Mars.
In conclusion, Elon Musk is an amazing entrepreneur and in a lot of ways is this millennium's Henry Ford. His advancements in technology have gone a long way in pushing humanity forward and he continues on this path to this day.
If anyone were to aspire to business and wanted a good role model I think they would need look no further than Elon Musk.
Thank you for watching my presentation on Elon Musk. Never stop learning and have a fantastic day.
