He developed an interest in computing when he was 10, when he was introduced to Commodore VIC-20. Out of his keen interest he taught himself programming, in fact he got so good at it that he developed a BASIC-based video game called, Blastar and sold it for 500$ to a magazine called “PC and Office technology”.

Continuing his Entrepreneurial innovations, in 1995, he dropped out of Stanford University in which he enrolled for Applied Physics and Material Science. He became a citizen of US in 2002. He is:

But the personal life of this business magnate is full of ups-and-downs. Elon met his first wife, who was a Canadian author, Justine Wilson while both were students at Ontario’s Queen’s University. They married each other in 2000 and separated in 2008, after having six sons. Then in 2008, Musk started dating Talulah Riley and they married in 2010. In 2012, Musk announced that he ended his four year relationship with Riley but interestingly, they again remarried in July, 2013. Adding to his grief, the second divorce was filed in December 2014. But this situation never seemed to end because again in March 2016, Riley filed a divorce against Musk which was ultimately finalized in October 2016. His personal is actually very stressed.

This was an introduction to Musk and his life. In further articles we will be updating about his works and abilities.
