Elon musk early life and childhood.

Elon reeve musk was born on 28 July 1971 in Pretoria, Transvaal, in South Africa. His mother is a dietitian and a model who is maye musk and his father was a South-Africa electromechanical engineer Errol musk.

Elon musk’s parents unfortunately divorced in 1980 and musk started living with his father in suburbs in Pretoria, musk really regretted his decision of living with his father after the couple got separated.

In one of his interviews, Elon Musk stated that his father was a terrible guythe reason Elon said a terrible guy was that his father Errol musk has committed almost every kind of crime like killing 3 men who crept into his home which is to be imagined on top of that, he said his father was very abusive in his words, Elon also said that his father used to call him an idiot and would not become successful in his life, 

The other thing about Elon is he was an avid reader. on top of that as he was by 10 he grew interested in computers and by 12 he learned programming using manual and created a game called blaster and sold to a pc technology company by then for around 500 dollars.

Elon Musk who is one of the most successful businessmen, inspiring, and influential personality to millions of people out there wasn’t the case.but his rise to the enormous success wasn’t so easy.

In childhood, musk was very much into books all day long, he was so studious that he actually read the entire encyclopedia at age 9. besides that he was very interested in computers and science fiction.

Musk was very much bullied in school in one instance he was so beaten up that he had even gone to the hospital.

Elon musk education.

At the age of 17, Musk moved to Canada to escape from the mandatory service in the south African military and entered queens university in 1989, and in a year he got his Canadian citizenship and moved to the University of Pennsylvania to study economics and physics in 1992.

Eventually, he got graduation in Bachelor of arts degree in economics from Wharton and a bachelor of science degree in physics fro the college of science and arts in 1997.

Later, he left Pennsylvania university to study Ph.D. in energy physics and materials science in the Standford university at California in 1995, unfortunately, this time he dropped out within 2 days of joining the university to grab the opportunities in the internet boom in 1995 and eventually launched his first-ever company Zip2 with his brother.

Elon musk on political views.

Musk made it very clear to the people of America as he is now living in America, he said that he is half republican and half democratic [ Let me tell you there are only 2 political parties in American politics ].

He is a serious believer of democracy and said that he was not a conservative, it would sound humorous to us but musk believes that government on MARS would be direct democracy.

Musk has stated that he is a socialist which he thinks as socialism is about seeking good for all not just pretending.

Musk always believed and stated clearly that the USA, where he is now being adopted as a home country, is the greatest country that ever exists on earth.

Elon Musk on AI.

In every interview and discussion about AI where if musk was present, he always criticized it.

Musk believes that AI is the most serious threat to the survival of the human race.

Musk is very precise in his words because, in January 2015, he has donated around 10 million dollars to a nonprofit organization called future of life institute which was focused on the upcoming challenges that are ahead with the advancement of technologies and obviously with the arrival of AI.

But if you see, musk owns a couple of nonprofit companies on AI like Deepmind which was focusing on improving machine intelligence and OpenAI which is also a nonprofit AI company.

When asked about these AI companies musk has invested in, he said, investments are not from the standpoint of actually trying to make any investment return. but it was to keep an EYE on what’s going on with AI, meanwhile, in his speech, he has taken the example of movies like terminator to explain how would AI be a threat to the human race.

Musk in COVID pandemic.

When the whole world is suffering from coronavirus in 2019 and 2020, musk made some stunning comments on the behavior of the American government as corona had erupted in America.

Initially, like the president trump itself, even musk too received criticism over his views on comparing corona to the common cold and calling those who are in panic of the virus are dumb.

In the initial days of COVID not completely erupted in America like in Italy by march 15, Musk tweeted that they did not report a single case of a child with COVID because they are full of immunity whereas it was all with elder people as immunity decreases by age.

His tweet image.

Other than that, on twitter, he also retweeted that these social distance measures should come to an end as soon as possible when there were around zero cases of corona in America in April.

He had many problems with the government of America when they ordered all the companies to shut down immediately to curb down the virus, Elon refused to do stating that the manufacture of vehicle, energy, and infrastructure is the very critical sector to us department of homeland security.

Musk even went on the extent to calling it is fascist to arrest those who want to move out of their homes and demanding freedom from the lockdown and free movement rather than just staying indoors.

Elon musk inventions and innovations.

1. Hyperloop.

Elon speaking speaking about HYPERLOOP

It is a crazy yet realistic idea which has the potential to redesign the modern transportation facility which musk invented. Basically, it is that in low pressurized tubes which are built connecting two separate cities and a pod [pressurized capsule] may travel in it free of any resistance like air and friction.

The motto behind introducing such a strange yet brilliant futuristic idea is to cut down the travel time and to be more time-efficient.

In the low-pressure tubes, pressurized capsules will ride on air bearings driven by induction motors and axial compressors.

It happened to be in august 2013, Hyperloop concept of transportation was published by Elon, to understand it in a better way they examined a route running between Los Angeles to San Francisco bay area having roughly 350 miles distance. 

With the help of modern technology called the Hyperloop system, the passengers who are traveling in it would reach their respective destination within 35 minutes where the hyperloop moves at a humongous speed of 760 miles per hour.

Because of this, we mentioned earlier that it is a crazy yet futuristic type of transportation idea.

Elon stated that this technology could take 7 to 10 years of time to get ready to use.

The great thing about this project of Musk is that he open-sourced this project so that others can share their ideas relevant to the tech which Elon wanted to build and in 2018 competition for pod prototype occurred in SpaceX place where german student engineering team set a record speed of 287 mph.

The first-ever commercial hyperloop system is set to be opened in Abu Dhabi in 2020 unfortunately not in America.

5 important moments of Elon musk life.

There are 5 moments in Elon musk’s life which changed his life completely and made him what he is today.

1. Compaq buying zip2.

Zip2 company was bought by Compaq computers for around 307 million dollars where musk was around 24 received around 22 million dollars as share.

It was the first big break after taking a big decision of dropping our from Stanford university looking at the internet boom.

2.  Paypal thing.

As the zip2 was sold, Elon went on to establish an online payments and financial services company called x.com and after merging with its competitor confinity it was renamed into PayPal and it was bought by eBay for around 1.5 billion dollars in 2002, where Elon got around 180 million dollars of share from the sale.

3. Fourth successful rocket launch of SpaceX.

You see, the SpaceX which was established to send the rockets into space with an investment of around 100 million dollars Elon got from Paypal sale, after back to back 3 rocket failures, the 4th one was a big success, and life-changing attempt for Elon.

He would have gone bankrupt or wouldn’t be the guy he is today is the 4ht one is also a failure because the investors almost gave up on Elon musk, very few people supported him.

That lead him to eventually get the 1.5 billion contract of sending cargo to the international space station from NASA which was the first time NASA had a contract with a private rocket company.

4. Choice of eco-friendly vehicle technology.

When musk in 2003, started working on the mission of bringing electric cars to people, he invested money and became the CEO buying the large percentage of shares of the already existing car manufacturing company called Tesla.

Due to the effort of Elon towards working on the electric vehicles which are eco-friendly which do not cause pollution and harm the earth, he is considered as one of the top influential people of the century and one of the most inspiring public figures.

5. Solar energy.

Looking at the immense possibility of generating energy through sunlight, Elon had invested 10 million dollars in 2006 and became the chairman of a company called SolarCity which is about to become America’s leading electricity provider.

These were some of the important moments in Elon’s life so far.

5 important things to learn from Elon Musk.

1. Continuous learning mindset.

Would you imagine anyone who self-taught the programming using some manuals and created a game called blaster and sold it for 500 USD just at the age of 12, It is none other than ELON. He read the entire encyclopedia at the age of 9, he always improved and taught himself all the important things by himself.

2. Connecting the dots.

You see, Elon always had the big picture printed in his mind, he first made the game and sold it, then he dropped out Stanford university to create zip2 company and sold it and then made PayPal, sold it, and then at last reached to SpaceX.

He targeted 3 important places which are the internet, energy, and space with his companies.

Paypal is a big thing on the internet, SpaceX is huge in the space industry, in energy SolarCity is his company.

Elon actually wanted to get to the space industry and finally, he did it.

3. Taking risks and Perseverance.

He is really a guy with excellent determination and perseverance, you see, when he established Spacex and his first 3 rocket launches were a big disaster but he has taken the risk, he immediately announced to launch the 4th rocket within months of time staking all his money and property.

Who would do that with 3 back to back failures?

4. Planning big and executing it.

Elon musk had gone to Russia to make deals for rockets which he wanted to send to space but the expense od each rocket would cost him a lot so he came back to America and decided to establish his own company Spacex with the 100 million dollars he got from Paypal share, with the clear goal of sending rockets in the least cost possible.

Guess what he did it.

In the next 10 years, he wanted to put a man on Mars.

Not just in Spacex, In PayPal he made the online payments and transactions happen within seconds which before the Paypal was very difficult.

Coming towards Tesla.

What thought would you get in your mind when you think about electric cars?

Mostly it would be dull, slow-moving cars.

Elon changed that perception introducing the tesla electric cars[ tesla company was already there but Elon became CEO and invested money] he introduced these cars which are super fast and easily compete with the race and sports cars which runs on fuels like petrol and diesel.

Elon has ensured the customers to make the cars more cost-effective ontop of that if you buy these cars you do not need to buy for fuel, they are planting the electric power stations across America especially for tesla cars which are free for lifetime once you buy the car.

Talking about SolarCity it would be the largest American electricity provider.

You see, even hyperloop is one of his future projects which is based to improve and make the transportation as fast as possible.

5. Surrounding yourself with critics and having a perfect team.

Elon always used to surround himself with the critics, usually converse with them, ask for their feedback on their projects and get more views and thoughts and perspectives of looking at the things.

The other great thing is having a team with a crystal clear thought in their head.

Elon only hires the best minds on the planet and follows the strict policy of no bullshit.

Elon always believes and it is 100% true that if a group of people is working on a single project, it would get much easier than only a single guy doing that, he would get demotivated in the failure and even quit if he does not surround himself with like-minded people.
