    Elon Musk certainly has burst upon the scene the public scene last 5 years! What distinguishes him from most of us geeky, nerdy, would-be entrepreneurs is that he actually is successful. That was the first thing that surprised me about SpaceX; it succeeded. I really did not hold out much hope of SpaceX amounting to much, ever, certainly not in the space of 5 years. If Mr. Musk were to fold up SpaceX now and walk away, it has already achieved more than any other similar-sized space venture ever has.

    Mr. Musk interests me for another reason, though. He reminds me of my 9 year-old self. He is very much the embodiment of what I was as a boy, and at least part of what I dreamed of becoming when I was a boy. He keeps saying things that I used to think. I’m curious how that happens? I’d like to learn more of his background, what formed him and what might explain his temperament.
