The Real-Life Tony Stark

Wed, 05/12/2010 - 6:37am

Elon Musk revolutionized the way we pay online with PayPal, and then moved on to Tesla Motors, where he's still trying to change the way Americans drive from point A to point B. As if that wasn't enough, Musk founded SpaceX, which builds space-capable rockets, with the hope of eventually shuttling people and cargo into space. Once again, Musk seems to be primed on the forefront of change, as President Obama recently announced a return for NASA to what it does best—exploration—while contract companies like SpaceX will continue to do the heavy lifting to and from the International Space Station.

Turns out he was also an inspiration for reimagined Tony Stark of the latest Iron Man movies. An impressive resume, without a doubt.
