Neil deGrasse Tyson was asked Which of this generation’s biggest tech luminaries and innovators will ultimately be remembered for having the greatest lasting effect on the world? His answer was Elon Musk. Musk will be bigger than Steve Jobs and Bill Gates.
Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were critical to launching the age of personal computers. Steve then followed up with the success of smartphones and tablets with iPhone and iPad. Bill Gates has had tremendous impact with efforts to get rid of Malaria and other diseases and problems of world poverty.
Elon Musk is trying revolutionize both human transportation and space exploration.
Neil did not discuss the potential revolution that Musk could have with rebuilding cities. The Boring Company could solve traffic problems and rebuilding sewers and other infrastructure with tunnels.
Elon Musk could also revolutionize communication with the Starlink satellite network.
