You, sir, are a blathering, full-fledged imbecile. You want to compare your use of toy rockets from more than a half-century ago to massive boosters that have returned four times to barges rocking at sea, and think anyone reading your comment won't bust their guts laughing at your inanity? Since you played with your toys fifty plus years ago, has ANYONE even attempted such a feat after returning from launching dozens of satellites at one time, or docking onto the ISS? It truly burns my butt to see nobodies such as yourself thinking you somehow deserve to criticize anyone who is actually making great things happen, when there are thousands of cretin oligarch carpetbaggers out there doing nothing but sucking the life out of this country. Musk was the one who made light-speed commerce possible with PayPal. It advanced financial transactions a thousandfold. He invested every dime he made in a tremendously bold and risky move to start SpaceX and Tesla... he made them work... both of them... multi-billion-dollar enterprises that are BOTH making huge strides in their respective fields. Musk pioneered a new advanced system of spin-welding that advanced the art of metal joints by decades, a technique used in both his spacecraft and his EVs. He pioneered rocket turbines that are 3D printed, reducing the number of discrete parts dramatically. They are simpler, have fewer joints to rupture, fewer fasteners to fail, are far less expensive and lighter. He pioneered a way to load far more propellant in his fuel tanks than had previously been done, by hypercooling of the liquids. Hudson... DeLorean... Packard... Studebaker... there have been dozens of failed car start-ups in the last 85 years. The Tesla is the first to succeed, and it started at a particularly challenging time--- the beginning of The Great Recession. Musk pioneered the "electric skateboard" concept, putting all the artery cells in, a thick, robust platform below the passengers, lowering the center of gravity dramatically, making the handling especially deft, with the added benefits of enormous cargo space front and back and giving the car the best side-impact resistance ever for a passenger car. It got the highest safety ratings ever--- and this is for a SEVEN PASSENGER SEDAN that can slam you into the seat, pushing you to 60 mph in as, little as 2.5 seconds--- there is no production car today... even multi-million-dollar, two-seat, stripped-down sports cars from Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche cannot keep up. You leave yourself open for ridicule... I hope this will help to prevent other witless trolls from making similar comments, when there thousands of riper villains, such as the Koch Brothers, Martin Shkreli, and Heather Bresch to roast.
