10 Fun Facts About Elon Musk

Musk initially found it impossible to get funding for SpaceX, which investors saw as a pipe dream. Musk channeled all his own money into the company to make SpaceX a reality (going against every piece of business advice ever written). SpaceX now has a $1.6 billion contract with NASA to resupply (and eventually ferry people to) the International Space Station, having reduced the cost of one mission from $1 billion to $60 million.
