Elon Musk is the most talked-about person on Twitter right now, and his latest tweet “per aspera ad astra” has his English fans wondering what the phrase means and if it has anything to do with his latest venture. The social networking platform was just purchased by the billionaire, who has huge hopes for it. He sent out a series of tweets after purchasing it for a record $44 billion, which, as usual, sparked lively debate among admirers.
WHAT DOES PER ASPERA AD ASTRA MEAN?
Is Elon descended from a Latin ancestor? No, he isn’t. So, what does ‘per aspera ad astra’ mean exactly? It’s a Latin phrase that roughly translates to “to the stars via difficulty” or “to the stars through our ambitions.” It’s one of several expressions that include the phrase “to the stars.” Elon’s message shouldn’t come as a surprise, given the recent agreement Elon signed with Twitter. Many of his supporters now anticipate him to purchase more social networking and gaming businesses. At the time of writing, though, the millionaire is only praising himself for his most recent achievement.
Per aspera ad astra!
