Elon Musk is an inventor, entrepreneur and engineer.
If he gets his way, someday we could all be moving to Mars on one of his Space X rockets, and driving his Tesla electric cars to our Solar City powered Martian homes.

Ashlee Vance takes a look at Musk's life in the new book, "Elon Musk: Tesla, Space X, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future."
