Apart from convincing the youngsters to drive EV and forcing all other rivals to open an EV wing, Musk’s private space company – SpaceX too had marked a major breakthrough this year. This to successfully send a batch of civilians to space and brought them back safely.
He’s also associated with Boring company, underground capsule-type transportation, and a brain-chip startup called Neuralink. Stating the reason why exactly Elon Musk was chosen as their Person of the Year, Edward Felsenthal, TIME’s editor-in-chief said, “For creating solutions to an existential crisis, for embodying the possibilities and the perils of the age of tech titans, for driving society’s most daring and disruptive transformations, Elon Musk is TIME’s 2021 Person of the Year.”
Musk also held live events and podcasts to tune citizens minds in a certain way, and tweets regularly on several cryptocurrencies affecting their prices and market emotions.
