Elon Musk facts vs fiction

Did you know that Elon Musk named his son after his favorite letter in the alphabet?

And did you know that the tech billionaire has his fingers in many pies aside from Tesla and SpaceX?

From the time he made a flamethrower (!) to what he did to his own Tesla Roadster, which of these crazy Elon Musk facts are true?

#1. What is the name of Elon Musk's infrastructure company?

Musk created The Boring Company to build underground tunnels. The goal was to reduce traffic congestion in cities like Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

#2. Musk gave his son an absurd name, what is it?

Elon Musk named his son X Æ A-XII

For legal reasons, he actually had to change the letter ‘Æ’ to ‘AE’ because Æ is not a letter of the English alphabet.

Right after acquiring Twitter, Elon Musk appointed himself to ‘Chief Twit‘ and changed his Twitter bio to reflect that.

#4. What happened to Musk's Tesla Roadster?

Mind you, some people believe the stunt was all CGI and it never actually happened.

Tesla makes beer as well as tequila, and one of Elon Musk’s company once made a flamethrower.

However, SpaceX does not make doormats.
