You probably know Elon Musk as either a billionaire who’s as close as we’re likely to get to a real life Tony Stark, or that guy who keeps saying crazy stuff about how robots are taking over the world and we’re all going to live on Mars. However you see him, Musk is spending all of his time and money shaping the future of our world. Here’s how he’s doing it:
Text version: http://www.toptenz.net/10-ways-elon-musk-is-making-the-world-a-better-place.php
8. Tesla Cars
7. Tesla Museum
6. Future of Life Institute
5. Nevada Gigafactory
4. Mars Colony
3. Reusable Rockets
2. Self-Driving Cars
we should let Elon hyperloop everwhere there's US Interstate, he can dig underneath, ok? people will add landing pads just to connect to his network, let him charge enough to disrupt some more industries. Dig it?
Elon Musk IS Tony Stark! I'm sorry but anyone who is literally putting their own money into creating their crazy dreams become reality and is finding success (Tesla) is a geniu. He's saving our environment via reusable technolog, he's creating a safer society via automated vehicles and he's pushing mankind to achieve the unthinkable (colonising Mars) and he has ideas to save our environment and word. THAT IS A REAL TONY STARK! 👍🏻💖💕
He seems more of a science and technology business man. He doesn't create the technology and like everyone is completely controlled by financiers. Stating how expensive his rockets are shouldn't matter. Everything on earth is technically here and free it just takes brilliant minds to create and develop but financiers control everything. They create nothing yet control everything.
I like this guy he is really a real life tony stark he has his pocket book open to many projects and ideas for the future but as it stands Mars wouldn't be accessible to though's with out money so all it would be is a vacation spot for rich people can any one tell me what movie already had this idea but they did it on a space station that's just a massive self sustaining bio dome shaped like a damn pentagram any way it's only for the unbelievably wealthy. So that's what's sad about this world we live in, money is what keeps humanity from progressing to the future and the people with lots of money are only worried about the power in the world and not concerned with the progression of human evolution humans haven't evolved since we became what we've become I take that back we have evolved but in a way that just kills us faster, humanity i Believe is stuck in an evolutionary rut because of money war and there are people who don't want humanity to progress and evolve and become great.
The world requires not one but a billion Elon Musks to lift the standards of human beings & remove orthodox people from planet earth. May the innovations from Musk & other scientists replace old fashion practices which retards the technological development of the world.
@Kevin Xulu That's what he's doing though. Not everyone has to donate their money to staving off the next famine, some people invest in ways of preventing or lessening the impacts of famines, climate change or what have you. That's what Musk and many others are doing.
Great man ... using resurces in useful ways... If just all rich people did the same and not just wasting money in stupid fancy cars and lavish parties or giving it to their party animal children to throw away...
*"You probably know Elon Musk..."*
I don't. I've only heard his name twice. Here, and in a YouTube interview with the guy who wrote American Ultra. Who are these people I'm supposed to know about and how are other people hearing about them, but not me? Just for shiggles I decided to Ctrl+F the word "who" to see if anyone else was confused about who this Elon Musk guy is. Nope, I'm the only one. Was he in the news or something? What am I missing?
Cool vid ,and interesting man .I do hope though he has better ideas for making a Mars colony than his latest idea of setting off several hydrogen bombs in secession over the planets axis to heat things up there .
10. Paypal? ok. Because "wire" transactions didn't exist before pay pal, and so many people use it right? I've used it once. And I am 30 years old. So no. Nothing changed with paypal. It is just another option to do what you already did.
9. Espace x. Still hasn't reached velcro or superglue levels of change. And those are not even the greatest. You save money for NASA? Congrats. Change the world? Not so much.
8. Tesla? Less than 0.01% people drive those cars. Niche as it can be.
7. A museum... world changing? Not.
6. AI protection plan. A solution to a problem that doesn't exist. And even if it did, there is no certainty that it will be a problem.
5. Battery factory. Niche. He builds something for him and his needs. Also, battery fluids get "treated" by building a container and burying it in the ground. Real HARD world changing solution: Hydrogen fuel cells. Tail pipe product: H2O. Pair it with renewable energies and truly change the world.
4. Changing Mars. Cool. For the people that will go there in like 20 or 30 years.
3. Reusable rockets. Again space x for the third time? If you have to mil it this much to make a top ten... Still, super niche. Real world problem for comparison: desalination of water for drought stricken countries.
2. Google did it, does it and will keep on doing it. Still, he develops it for his cars. Example of world changing unlicensed production: penicillin.
1. Hyperloop. It will change L.A. and San Francisco. Or the country. Like the US. Yeah. US = the world. US citizen here, but still.
He does put money where his mouth is, and some of his projects are cool; but changing the world? I guess after Steve Jobs you needed a replacement for "the guy that takes credit for other people's work just because he payed for it". It's like giving an MVP trophy to a franchise owner when he doesn't even play.
NASA didn't invent velcro or super glue. Velcro existed and the creators of it wanted it to be associated with NASA for the purpose of advertising. Super glue was invented by accident twice, the second time was by Kodak who finally realized the potential of the invention. This is a reply to a post a year ago, but I don't care - it needs to be said that Elon Musk is out-doing a lot of other famous inventors and he is changing the world.
@Ross Calder What I did, do or will do has nothing to do with what I am saying. I don't need to be a doctor to know I have a headache, the same way I don't need to be a world changing character to know what "world change" means.
+Esteban Franchina I disagree with you, and I think it's because you seem to see change in terms of ten years, rather than a hundred years. Long term change sitll counts as changing the world.
Also, the idea is that he is changing the world, not that he has already.
10) I've never used paypal, but people do use it (while its not world changing).
9) Making space flight cheaper will change the world in the future; allowing for space tourism, space business, and colonization of other planets. Also, saving money for NASA means NASA can do more missions.
8) The cars will come down in price, and electric cars are the future.
7) I agree, the museum doesn't matter.
6) Solving problems before they become problems is what you do. Otherwise you have problems, and in this case, potentially catastrophic problems. AI might have no problems, but that will come down to prior planning.
5) Improved productivity for batteries contributes to the future of cars.
4) Colonization will affect humanity 20-100 year from now. It being years away doesn't change the fact that there will be change.
3) Space is the future of humanity. But perhaps you could put space in one category.
2) Yeah, this doesn't seem to be an Elon Musk only tech.
1) Techs spread beyond their home country. It could be the future of trains world-wide.
+Esteban Franchina at least he is using his money and resources to try to do something productive... if you compare it to 99% of the rest billionaire that just buy stupid useless, expensive things or even worst give it to their children so they can buy stupid things...
I had no idea who this just is and after this video the answer to who he is seems to be "some rich guy who throws his money at something because it is labelled as 'the future of tech' no matter how ridiculous the thing is"
+Joe Mckeon No. Einstein was himself the smart guy that changed the world. Musk just pays smart people like Einstein to achieve what he proclaims to be his inventions. It's like saying the guy who first said "I want to fly" invented flying instead of the Wrigth brothers.
No mention of Solar City? That is Elon Musk's brain child and he funded it as well, except he has his cousins actually running it. Solar City is the proof project that solar power is right now cost effective. Solar City makes a profit installing solar power systems on people's homes "for no money" from the home owner! Solar City installs it themselves at their own cost and then sells the electricity to the homeowner for 'less' that what the existing electric utility sells it. You can go fully solar and it won't cost you anything up front, you will save money, and Elon Musk will make money. How that isn't a total game changer, I don't know.
+Peter Cohen Have you heard of Powur yet? We're the new networking leg leading Solar City's national expansion - headed to Mexico also before the year is over. End game is to take people off grid. We gather the leads, we earn the commissions and residuals. https://raremedia.wistia.com/medias/2agsi41c4y
+Peter Cohen Shows the success of scamming the government but totally non-viable without massive government subsidies both in supply and usage- some of which are being cut. Tesla Cars are also a scam- supposed to have a quickchange battery but in reality it takes an hour to change with approximate equipment and much longer in an average garage.
joshua toomey the new tesla model 3 will just be 35 k for a 4 door saloon that can do 200 miles on ONE CHARGE. Given a few more years, he will be selling electric cars better and cheaper than normal cars!
+Oswald Rayleigh they actually are, Nissan with the Leaf, Chevrolet with the Bolt, Volkswagen gonna change for EV... but Toyota gonna go for Fuel Cell.. because they love to give money to oil industries
+joshua toomey well indirectly, I hope the existence of Tesla cars that selling electric cars like hot cakes will trigger many famous automobile manufacturer to fully release their electric cars to the market, and make the competition fiercer and drag the price down
+joshua toomey All things are expensive at 1st (internet, mobile phones, etc) but when they become more commercially popular and there is more market competition the price becomes more affordable to the average consumer.
man... I hope the secret-est secret project from Elon Musk, is a self sustained power supply for homes that plug directly onto the power mains and liberates us from the electric companies... He is the perfect example that you can still make millions and bring new technologies that replace old ones fast... and in a sense, cheaper... a lot cheaper... I mean, a fully electric car that goes as fast as your average exotic? for less money? as of now!? shure, many other companies are now trying that out... but still, Elon showed them the way... Too bad I will never have the joy to even get inside a model S car, but maybe in the next life... xD
and all the profit he makes off of us buying his products goes right back into his companies to change the world even more. He is a very inspiring and generous man, doing things for the world and asking for nothing in return.
