Right out of a Science Fiction Novel

When I read and watch interviews with Elon Musk, it feels like something right out of a science fiction novel.  A rogue entrepreneur attempting to make space travel a reality.  It is pretty inspiring to see how his two firms, SpaceX and Tesla, are fighting against long odds to succeed in very complicated industries.  It remains to be seen whether he wins in either or both cases, but the journey is fascinating:

Meanwhile, most startups are looking to add features to Facebook, or Twitter, or photo sharing.  You can almost see the toll it has taken on Elon, despite being inspired by the vision.  Have to admire the ability to stick with it in the face of multiple launch failures and delays for both companies.  Some days I’m glad BPM is a little easier than putting rockets into orbit.
