South African-born Elon Musk is credited with reviving the Hyperloop concept (see the preceding article, ‘Maglev’), and
is recognised as one of the most influential innovators of today. His vision is no less than to change the world, reduce
global warming through sustainable energy production and consumption, and minimise the risk of human extinction by setting up a colony on Mars!
