Elon Musk seems to always be thinking about the future. He is currently innovating transportation with his rapidly growing car company Tesla, but he continues to look past his current endeavors to bigger and better things. These things include a high speed railway system that would redefine how we travel across land in the United States. Elon now wants to take to the sky with his latest dream.
According to an article in the New York Times, Elon Musk believes he can build the next best thing to the airplane – an electric supersonic airplane. The airplane, “has the ability to take off and land vertically.” What led to Elon’s idea was when British Airways and Air France halted their fleet of Concorde in 2003. He believes there can be a more efficient traveling means in the air that can do things better and faster. Time is always a concern for so many people. If airplanes can go faster and halt their speed, land vertically and take off vertically it could totally change the game.
Elon will continue to find the next best thing in transportation. He likes to challenge the conventional with the unconventional. I wouldn’t be surprised if he succeeded. I think it is great that he is progressing technology. We need people like Elon on this planet.
