Elon Musk Dazzles 'Oscars Of Science' In Style And The Internet Can't Stop Spinning Memes Now

On Saturday, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk attended the Breakthrough Prize Ceremony, also known as "the Oscars of Science," in style — and it has invited a hoard of memes on social media. 

What Happened: The Breakthrough Prize, which has Silicon Valley titans like Mark Zuckerberg and Yuri Milner as its board members, recognizes "scientists changing the world," with award trophies created by Olafur Eliasso and sizable cash prizes. 

On the 10th edition of the ceremony, celebrities like Musk, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Robert Downey Jr., Bradley Cooper, Ruper Murdoch, Kim Kardashian, Katy Perry, Margot Robbie, Orlando Bloom, Edward Norton, Adam Levine and Brie Larson were in attendance, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
