Time Magazine awards Elon Musk Person Of The Year 2021


The founder and CEO of SpaceX and Tesla CEO, Elon Musk was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year 2021 on Monday, December 13.

The 50-year-old Musk made history this year after his space company, SpaceX completed the first all-civilian crew mission into space.

He also overtook Jeff Bezos as the world’s richest man.

According to Time, ‘The richest man in the world does not own a house and has recently been selling off his fortune. He tosses satellites into orbit and harnesses the sun; he drives a car he created that uses no gas and barely needs a driver.

‘With a flick of his finger, the stock market soars or swoons. An army of devotees hangs on his every utterance. He dreams of Mars as he bestrides Earth, square-jawed and indomitable. Lately, Elon Musk also likes to live-tweet his poops.’

It was gathered that as at Monday, Musk had a net worth of $265.4billion, edging out fellow billionaire Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos.
