“For a long time, ” he answered, “I've thought that it's inevitable that something bad is going to happen on a planetary scale-a plague, a meteor-that will require humanity to start over somewhere else, like mars. One day I went to the NASA website to see what progress they were making on their Mars program, and I realized that they weren't even thinking about going there anytime soon.”

“I had gotten 180 million when my partners and I sold PayPal,” he continued, “and it occurred to me that if I spent $90 million and used it to acquire some ICBMs from the former USSR and sent one to Mars, I could inspire the exploration of Mars. ”

When I asked him about his background in rocketry, he told me he didn't have one. “I just started reading books,” he said. That's how shapers think and act.

埃隆·马斯克1971年6月28日出生于南非的行政首都比勒陀利亚,拥有加拿大和美国双重国籍,企业家、工程师、慈善家。现任太空探索技术公司(SpaceX)CEO兼CTO、特斯拉公司首席执行官、太阳城公司(SolarCity)董事会主席。

长久以来,马斯克一直担心有一天灾难会降临到整个地球,人类不得不离开地球才能生存,有一天他去浏览NASA的官方网站,想了解下火星计划的进展,结果却让他大失所望,于是开始自己研究火箭与太空探索技术。

马斯克简直是神一样的存在,一方面他忧国忧民,心怀人类; 另一方面,为了实现火星旅行的目标,他在没有任何火箭技术背景的情况下,毫不犹豫开始看书,坚信自己一定能造出火箭。

和马斯克的胸怀和目标相比,我们简直弱爆了,马斯克还让我想到了一句古话:

天下事有难易乎?为之,则难者亦易矣;不为,则易者亦难矣。

以后再碰到难题的时候,我会首先想到Elon Musk
