Elon Musk the founder of Tesla and SpaceX is now the third richest man on earth, so he will definitely be the richest on Mars, maybe that’s why he is in such a rush to get there.
A rough week for the tech mogul after having the news leaked that the Model 3 will no longer be trading, and a possible COVID-19 infection meant he missed the launch of his SpaceX rocket carrying 4 astronauts and baby Yoda.
However, things aren’t all bad for Musk, following the acceptance of Tesla onto a stock market index Tuesday, rocketing his wealth up by £15 billion.
That means that he made about £128,000 a second, this all adds up to bring his net worth to $117.5 billion according to Bloomberg.
This allowed Musk to leap past fellow tech mogul Mark Zuckerberg to be the third richest man on earth.
Jeff Bezos still holds the top spot at $185 billion, followed by Bill Gates at $129 Billion.
This is no surprise following Tesla being named the worlds most valuable car manufacturer.
Tesla will officially be included on the US S&P 500 on December 21.
However, Musk has other things on his mind than just his wealth and has stated in the past that he is planning to sell all of his possessions as he is devoting himself to Earth and Mars.
