The fortune of the American businessman, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, is estimated at $ 272.3 billion, which makes him the richest person on Earth in the history of Forbes calculations.

According to the magazine, Musk was able to achieve this figure thanks to, among other things, a sharp rise in the price of Tesla shares. Growth exceeded 13% on Monday, pushing companies past the $ 1 trillion market value. In just one day, Musk's fortune grew by $ 41 billion.

It's worth reminding that Elon Musk has already topped the list of the richest people in the world according to Forbes. On September 28, his fortune was over $ 203.4 billion. The second place remained with the head of Amazon Jeff Bezos, the third - for the CEO of LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) Bernard Arnault.

At the same time, analysts at the financial conglomerate Morgan Stanley argued that Musk could become the world's first trillionaire thanks to the space industry, and SpaceX, which produces rockets and space infrastructure, may well be as powerful an industry engine as Google was for the Internet, since Earth observation and deep space exploration are increasingly in demand.
