The Flying Car

Many of you, during recent weeks might have caught an image of an astronaut driving a sports car through space in many an online social platform. To those who are unaware of what and why allow me to explain.  Firstly, there is no astronaut; it is just a space suit. Secondly the car belongs to South African-born billionaire, Elon Musk who is the founder of Paypal, electric car company Tesla, and SpaceX of which SpaceX has just designed the Falcon Heavy, the most powerful rocket on earth and to show off their prowess they launched their own CEO’s sports car, the very same one that he uses to commute to work and drive around in space. They also fit the vehicle with solar panels and played legendary David Bowie’s track Space Oddity on repeat thereby allowing the vehicle to drift through space till the battery finally gives up.

I am personally a big fan of Mr Elon, who is a true visionary and has honest intentions about the human race and one of his founding aim is to send humans to the red planet and colonize it. He also plans to set up the hyperloop system right here on Earth. There is a troll that goes “170 billionaires exist on the planet and not even one became Batman’ but in all honesty Mr Elon came very close. If one day we are greeted with alien life forms and they ask me the famous question “take me to your leader” I would point to Mr. Elon.
