What are some programming jobs at SpaceX
What hardly anyone knows: Elon Musk did this before Tesla and SpaceX
Elon Musk is a billionaire visionary who fascinates many people. But only a few people know in which industry the native South African worked before Tesla was founded. There are also some spicy details in private life.
Elon Musk was a programmer
The entrepreneur and investor's full name is Elon Reeve Musk and was born in Pretoria (South Africa) in 1971. Long before the economist and physicist founded the companies Tesla and SpaceX, he programmed video games. During the 90s he worked for the company "Rocket Science Games".
His name even appears in the credits of the game "Loadstar: The Legend of Tully Bodine", as well as "Cadillacs and Dinosaurs: The Second Cataclysm". Musk was also involved in the game "Rocket Lockey".
Elon Musk tweeted his phone number to 16.8 million followers
Tesla founder invented the first game when he was 12
Musk had been programming video games from an early age. At the age of 12 he invented the game "Blastar", which he sold for 500 US dollars.
In 1995, he founded his first company, Zip2, which he sold four years later for $ 307 million. His next company, X.com, then merged with PayPal. It wasn't until 2002 that Elon Musk finally founded SpaceX and two years later Tesla.
Elon Musk's private life is also pretty good: He has been married three times so far - twice with the same woman, British actress Talulaj Riley. Musk has five sons (twins and triplets) with his first wife, fantasy writer Justine Wilson.
