World's richest man, Elon Musk, and other tech entrepreneurs visit Pope Francis

The billionaire tech mogul, Elon Musk, expressed his joy on Twitter after meeting with Pope Francis at Casa Santa Marta. Musk and four of his seven children met the Pope in a private audience. 

The two have much in common—above all, an interest in ecology. 

Musk is not the only tech entrepreneur that has visited Pope Francis in recent years. In January 2016, the Pope met with Tim Cook of Apple and in August the same year, with Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg.   

At the outbreak of the pandemic, in 2020, Pope Francis contacted Microsoft and IBM with the hope of discussing the dangers of developing artificial intelligence without solid ethical foundations.
