Either way, one thing's for certain: Musk is a game-changer. A pioneer. A visionary. He's that guy we've always needed. Someone who has the brains, work ethic, and charisma to get something done that will substantially benefit the entire world.
At this rate, it doesn't matter how far his ideas go. It's the foundation for continued revolution. When Ford changed the way automobiles were produced, I'm sure he never thought robots would build the cars. Or when the first computer was made, I'm sure it was never expected to fit in your pocket in the form of a smartphone.
How far Musk will get or what he still has left to uncover remains unknown. Perhaps neither he nor the rest of us will live long enough to see to what extent in which mankind takes his incredible work, his building blocks of bettering the world. But we'll likely look back (possibly from Mars) and say, "This is because of Musk."-- Written by Bret Kenwell in Petoskey, Mich. . At the time of publication the author is long EBAY.
