“He is reshaping life on Earth and possibly life off Earth, as well” 

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year. The magazine announced that Musk, the wealthiest man in the world, as its choice Monday.

“He is reshaping life on Earth and possibly life off Earth, as well,” Edward Felsenthal, Time’s editor-in-chief, said Monday on NBC’s “TODAY” show.

Felsenthal wrote in Time’s profile of Musk: “Person of the Year is a marker of influence, and few individuals have had more influence than Musk on life on Earth, and potentially life off Earth too.”

“In 2021, Musk emerged not just as the world’s richest person but also as perhaps the richest example of a massive shift in our society,” he wrote.
