| | JUNE 20234 If `Modern Problems Require Modern Solutions' was a person, it probably would have been Elon Musk, the multibillionaire global business icon, endeavoring to solve challenges with futuristic technologies is the epitome of this. Be it showing the world that space missions can be democratized, manifesting that internet can be way cheaper, or buying Twitter to try and ensure free speech, Elon has always been at the forefront of solving societal challenges. As we have come up with a special issue based on leaders and achievers, it feels right to talk about Elon.One of Elon's business projects, Starlink, is a satellite internet constellation operated by SpaceX, providing satellite Internet access coverage to over 50 countries. SpaceX privately sent truckloads of Starlink terminals to Ukraine last year, allowing the war-ridden country's military to communicate by plugging them in and connecting them with the nearly 4,000 satellites SpaceX has launched into Low-Earth orbit so far. Governments, including the United States and France, funded the shipments on top of those funded privately by SpaceX.On the other hand, Elon also envisions enabling common people to experience space. Starship is the nearly 400-foot tall rocket SpaceX has been developing, intending to create a vehicle that can carry cargo and groups of people beyond Earth. Most interestingly, Elon's Starship will cost less than $10 million, while NASA's space missions currently cost $4.1 billion for a single launch. That's a mind-blowing, ground-breaking revolution. Well, even though the scale is different, global leaders worldwide seem more interested in solving societal challenges with technology. In this issue, we have curated a bunch of stories pertaining to exceptional leaders and achievers in Asia.Do let us know your thoughts.Sujith VasudevanManaging Editoreditor@ceoinsightsasia.comEditorialIt's a Modern Solutions Thing Vol 04 · Issue 4-5 ·JUNE, 2023 Publisher Alok Chaturvedi Managing Editor Sujith Vasudevan Manager - DesignPrabhu Dutta A.R.N Ray Noida Rohit Raghubanshi Akshay Shettyadvertise@ceoinsightsasia.comEditorial queries editor@ceoinsightsasia.comTo subscribeVisit www.ceoinsightsasia.com/subscribe/ or send emailto subscription@ceoinsightsasia.comMagazine Price is $50 per issuePublisher Alok ChaturvediPrinted and Published By Alok Chaturvedi on behalf of InfoConnect Web Technologies India Pvt.
