To infinity, and beyond
Just getting around on Earth isn't good enough for Musk, though – he's looking to space. In 2002, he co-founded SpaceX, a commercial spacecraft company for which he now serves as CEO and Chief Designer. SpaceX is looking to make Earth-orbiting reusable vehicles, and eventually ones that can travel to other planets. Last year, SpaceX became the first commercial spacecraft to attach to the International Space Station, deliver a load and return to earth.
