If You Think You Had a Busy Week, Check Out Everything Elon Musk Has Done
It always feels good to cross something off your to-do list. But we have a feeling that SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s list puts most people’s to shame.
It’s been a pretty productive week for Musk.
Back in March, he and his team pledged to solve the persistent rolling blackouts that Southern Australia has been experiencing within 100 days, by installing 100 to 300 megawatt hours batteries to stabilize the region’s power grid.

Now that the contract has been officially signed, Tesla is hard at work to make that promise to get it done within 100 days.
Tesla has also been sending its Powerwall battery systems along with employees to install them to Puerto Rico, which lost power last week due to Hurricane Maria. Musk has donated $250,000 of his money to the relief effort.
On the SpaceX side of things, the company celebrated the ninth anniversary of the Falcon 1 rocket becoming the first ever liquid fuel rocket built by a private company to orbit around the Earth.

On social media, Musk also unveiled concept art for SpaceX’s moon base and city on Mars. So you know, just a casual Friday.
And Elon isn’t the only high-achieving Musk making his mark this week. His mom, Maye, was just named as a face of CoverGirl cosmetics.
