It’s Elon Musk’s world, and everyone else is just driving in it

High praise keeps rolling in for Elon Musk, perhaps best known as CEO of the electric-car company Tesla. The Atlantic named him on its list of inventors that future historians will consider among today’s greats:

In the spirit of inveterate and wide-ranging tinkerers like Leonardo da Vinci and Benjamin Franklin, Musk has transformed virtually every field he’s taken an interest in, from electronic payments to commercial spaceflight to electric cars.

He dropped out of a Stanford graduate program to launch his first company, an online mapping and directory service whose sale enabled the launch of what would become PayPal—and Musk’s ticket to big-time innovation. Like many of his PayPal colleagues, Musk used his fortune from the sale of that company to fund a flurry of new ventures, including Tesla, a manufacturer of electric cars, and SpaceX, a commercial spaceflight operation.

Musk also has his hand in another potential world-changing field, solar energy, as chairman of SolarCity.
