Elon Musk: The Real Life Tony Stark


With a bachelors degree in both Physics and Economics, Elon Musk went on to pursue his graduate degree in applied physics and material science at Stanford, but soon after dropped out to figure out issues he saw as “important problems that would most affect the future of humanity”. Even though he never finished getting his masters degree, Musk never gave up on his dream of making the world a better place. With the money he got from PayPal, Musk was able to invest into the two ventures he wanted to pursue the most: Tesla and SpaceX. One makes fuel efficient vehicles. The other transits people into outer space.

Like many other people, Musk has put his graduate degrees on hold. And like many other people, he’ll be able to easily pick up from where he started, especially with the advent of the internet. Even without finishing school, Elon Musk continues to learn – which is the main point of getting a graduate degree. Here’s a look at how Elon Musk’s dreams and passion has ignited a whole new interest in space exploration.
