After having the pleasure of listening to a fantastic audio book “Elon Musk” on www.scribd.com by Ashlee Vance. I realize that I found my new Steve Jobs, Elon Musk. Unlike Steve Jobs, Elon Musk had a modern day The Nelson’s family-(The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet). This tv series ran from 1952-1965(black and white), and 1965-66(color), always watching this I never knew what Ozzie Nelson did for a living, on the other hand Steve Jobs father Paul was a machinist who never graduated from high school, Elon Musk’s father Errol was a pilot, sailor and engineer. Educationally, Elon graduated with distinction in physical science and computer science, Steve sort of drifted through college, it did not really mattered,both Steve Jobs and Elon Musk have been my two visionaries of my century.
I am really tired of all of the books and movies about the opinionated cruelties that went on in the life of Steve Jobs. The fact of the matter that Steve Jobs was one of our greatest contributors of modern day’s technology. There maybe some people who might say that he knew nothing about technology, and just wanted to feel important, he made Apple Computer a reality, just like Thomas Edison and the light bulb. This fact cannot be denied. Unfortunately Steve Jobs died much too early, however we are very fortunate to have Tim Cook to carry on with Apple Computer, but we have Elon Musk who has taken on the mission like Steve Jobs, make our planet Earth a better place to live, make us aware that we are just a small dot in many galaxies, the UNIVERSE, and hopefully our planet can exist infinitely.
When you think of Elon Musk, you associate him with the Electric automobile company Tesla, and a co founder of Zip2, PayPal, but I think is biggest contribution to our Universe is being the founder of SpaceX.
SpaceX is an Aerospace Orbital Rocket Launch Corporation. As of July 15, 2015 it has over 4000 employees. Headquartered in Hawthorne , California (2002), Elon Musk challenge is to create an affordable space transportation for our Humanity, and thus lead to the eventual colonization to the planet Mars. Just in 1492, Columbus set a foot in America, Musk is tying to reach out to other existences in our galaxy, like Steve Jobs we always need to improve technology, who would ever think that the cell phone would be our in-pocket computer, stop watch, and telephone, an so much more, but there is one distinction that Elon Musk has made that very few have realize, when he fires a missile into the sky and unfortunately it disintegrate. this might be his greatest accomplishment. Who knows if there is a form of life in the Universe that is able to see or hear his failing rocket. I sure hope so, both Steve Jobs, Elon Musk have gave us the true meaning and understanding of the Beatles song, Help!
“Help, I need somebody, Help, not just anybody, Help, you know I need somebody, Help! When I was younger, so much younger, than today I never needed anybody’s help in any way. But now these days are gone I’m not so self assure, Now I found I’ve changed my mind and opened up the doors. Help me if you can, I’m feeling down, and I do appreciate you being ’round. Help me get my feet back on the ground, Won’t you pleas help me? And now my life has changed in oh so anyways, My independence seems to vanish in the haze, But every now and then I feel so insecure I know that I just need you like I never done before. Help me if you can, I’m feeling down, And I do appreciate you being ’round, Help me get my feet back on the ground, Won’t you please help me?” I want to thank Steve Jobs and Elon Musk for helping appreciate that I live on a wonderful planet called Earth, and the many days I have left RE turning my Haze into beads of sunshine.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me machete big choices in life. Because almost everything-all external expectations, all pride, all fear, of embarrassment or failure-these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is important..” Steve Jobs
