Elon Musk announced this weekend that he has Asperger syndrome , an autism spectrum condition, during his appearance on Saturday Night Live.

The entrepreneur said, "I'm making history tonight as the first person with Asperger's to present" Saturday Night Live ", or at least the first to admit it," he added after a wave of applause.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people with Asperger's Syndrome have problems with social, emotional, and communication skills, as well as unusual behaviors and interests.

The CDC notes that Asperger's Syndrome affects people's ability to plan for the future, but it helps them develop alternative strategies and enables them to remember vast amounts of information.

Musk isn't the only neurodivergent public figure. The ecologist Greta Thunberg and the Mexican genius girl Adhara Pérez also have Asperger's.
