Elon Musk is a famous industrial designer and engineer who is also the founder of SpaceX and the CEO of car manufacturing company Tesla.

Elon Musk did a cameo in TBBT
In ‘The Big Bang Theory’, Elon Musk featured in the ninth episode of the ninth season titled “The Platonic Permutation“. Elon meets Howard Wolowitz, an engineer and one-time astronaut while volunteering at a homeless shelter on Thanksgiving day, serving Thanksgiving dinner. Space-related banter follows with Howard telling Musk his desire to go to Mars. To which a slightly crestfallen Musk says, “We’re not quite there yet, but we are always looking for engineers”.
Musk had a good time with his guest spot, and the scene between Howard and Elon delighted the audience, especially the nerds and Teslaholics, for the entire two and a half minutes. The cameo ends with a sportive Musk asking fanboy Howard Wolowitz if he wants to share a leftover pumpkin pie at the sink. Besides this episode, Musk is seen in another episode named “The Military Miniaturization” where he passes by Sheldon who is busy discussing Elon’s theory that the world as we know it could all be a part of an alien video game.
