South African born founder of Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX), Elon Musk has proven what can be achieved when innovation and creativity are expertly blended. The company’s SpaceX Dragon recently successfully completed its first commercial cargo mission to the International Space Station. A look at his profile shows that Musk is proactive with Twitter and focuses on using the forum to inform and update markets about his work.

In a recent article, by reneweconomy.com.au, it was report that Musk has officially killed the petrol car. “Adios gas-powered cars.” That was the reaction of Barclays analyst Brian Johnston over the weekend to news that Tesla Motors had received orders for nearly 200,000 of its Model 3 electric vehicle in less than two days.
