Viral News Desk: Elon musk has been named TIME's 2021 person of the year. "He tosses satellites into orbit and harnesses the sun; he drives a car he created that uses no gas and barely needs a driver. With a flick of his finger, the stock market soars or swoons. An army of devotees hangs on his every utterance. He dreams of Mars as he bestrides Earth, square-jawed and indomitable. Lately, Elon Musk also likes to live-tweet his poops" TIME said announcing him the Time 2021 person of the year.
Elon Musk is also the founder and CEO of rocket company SpaceX and leads brain-chip startup Neuralink and infrastructure firm The Boring Company.
"This is the man who aspires to save our planet and get us a new one to inhabit: clown, genius, edgelord, visionary, industrialist, showman, cad; a madcap hybrid of Thomas Edison, P.T. Barnum, Andrew Carnegie and Watchmen’s Doctor Manhattan, the brooding, blue-skinned man-god who invents electric cars and moves to Mars," the magazine wrote explaining why Elon Musk has been chosen to be the person of a year, 2021, that has been full of historic fluctuations.
Musk has spent a lifetime defying the haters; now, it seems, he’s finally in a position to put them in their place. For 2021 was the year of Elon Unbound, TIME wrote.
