"  “SpaceX has proved that it is worth cooperating with our company. A contract with NASA is a good proof, and we would like to establish cooperation, making use of Falcon 9 or Falcon Heavy launch vehicles,” Juranek said.  "

"  Fisher responded: "Of the 1,278 2012-2014 Tesla Model S cars in our 2014 Survey, 31 were reported to have problems on locks and latches, and 11 were reported to have problems on doors.
"These are unusually high problem rates," he added. "The average problem rate for locks and latches is less than one-half of 1 percent for each of the model years 2012 through 2014."  "

Not sure if that last paragraph refers to Tesla only or all makes of auto.
Also 2.43% is a plague?

"  Thirty years from now there will be a huge amount of oil – and no buyers. Oil will be left in the ground. The Stone Age came to an end, not because we had a lack of stones, and the oil age will come to an end not because we have a lack of oil.

A computer science expert has raised concerns over the dangers of intelligent robots that are made to kill. Autonomous weapons systems can choose and engage targets without the intervention of humans.

Tesla is charging ahead with its plan to create a world-wide network of free, solar-powered rapid charging stations for its growing fleet of all-electric vehicles. That's great news if you're lucky enough to own a Tesla now, but the real end-game here is to have a robust network of charge stations in place for the launch of the "people's Tesla", the Model 3. Range anxiety, be gone!

Of course you know what the next step is? Sooner or later there will be vandals probably paid for by Oil Inc. That's when the boulders and other things camouflaged as landscaping morph's in to security robots, disables their car, kicks there ass good, handcuffs them, calls the police and then morph's back into landscape before the police arrive. There sit the criminals handcuffed with video evidence sitting in their lap waiting for the police to pick up the trash.

Hey, it could happen :)

Thank you for taking and posting the pictures. I like to keep up with everything SpaceX. The launch pad looks like it's still configured for shuttle. Is that right?

Not really. The Shuttle service tower was left in place because SpaceX will use parts of it, e.g. the elevator in the Fixed Service Structure. Other parts have been removed. If you look closely at the bottom photo, you can see it appears that SpaceX has sealed the top of the flame trench, which would make it incompatible with the Shuttle's Mobile Launch Platform.

I suspect that, in time, SpaceX might remove the Rotating Service Structure to the left, but we'll see. Some speculate SpaceX might use the RSS for placing military payloads atop a Falcon Heavy.  "

Not quite the threat to human existence that Mr. Musk is concerned about however the marginally employed will be challenged. I guess there is a bright side.
"  Let me end on a more positive note that I hope to expand upon in a forthcoming post. We can use the power and productivity of learning robots to address the limitless material, social and environmental problems that confront us. There is no end to the people that can be fed, clothed and housed. There is no end to the land that can be reclaimed from industrial toxins and transformed into production and pleasure for humans and animals. Finally, there is no end to the ways that humans can productively work with one another if they are no longer riven by the conflicts of scarcity.  Perhaps we will learn to love our robots. "

Recent developments at the intersection of robotics and the branch of artificial intelligence called deep learning give us some clues about how our relationship to machines is going to evolve.

Story
Tagline
Dedicated to getting the REAL Elon Musk more active on Google Plus
Introduction
“changing the energy cycle from petroleum-based to solar-electric; and moving into space.”

(expropriated from Wikipedia)


Elon Musk (born June 28, 1971) is an American engineer and entrepreneur best known for co-founding PayPalSpaceX and Tesla Motors. He is currently the CEO and CTO of SpaceX, CEO and Product Architect of Tesla Motors and Chairman of SolarCity. Musk is best known for having created the first viable production electric car of the modern era (Tesla Roadster), for designing a private successor to the Space Shuttle (F9/Dragon) and creating the world's largest Internet payment system (PayPal).

The Tagline has been changed (Nov09, 2012) from Verified to more active because Mr. Musk does indeed have a G+ profile that is verified ( +114461178896543099856 )   and he has used it for the occasional hangout and posted a few photos. However fans always want more, so I will continue to echo his Tweets and post news items till he (or his media minion) take on this task. However I do appreciate that he is an extremely busy individual and I guess spending his time changing the personal transportation industry and going to Mars rather than posting to various social media sites is acceptable. ;)
