Elon Musk

Sometimes we wonder if Elon Musk ever sleeps. The breakthroughs that he has achieved in 2017 are way over and above what you would expect from any normal human being. Amongst other things, this year the Gigafactory started battery production (opening the door to significant reductions in the cost of batteries), the first Tesla full-electric truck was unveiled, the Boring Company got approval to build a Hyperloop between NY and DC as well as testing a working model and testing cars underground, and Musk also revealed his plans to colonise Mars. And the Tesla Model 3 started production. Just another average year in the life of a world-saving entrepreneur.
