“If they are successful, what that factory can do is push down the price of the battery cell so low that it becomes a commodity. That is something that we haven’t done yet that needs to be done. And if he does that, it will go into homes, it will go into grid storage and it will go into cars and it will change the paradigm completely,” Draga tells Johnson.

In an interview with Cory Johnson on Bloomberg West, Momentum Dynamics CEO Andy Draga says that there is massive upside in the company if it succeeds...

Last summer the car gurus at Edmunds.com took advantage of Tesla Motors’ ever-growing Supercharger network to drive coast-to-coast in a Model S in 67 hours and 21 minutes, record time for an electric vehicle. Carl Reese, of Santa Clarita, California, thought he and his friends could smash that record. This past weekend, they claim they did — by nine hours and 34 minutes.

My experience is that you need to recharge every 3 hours or so, but never fullt charge it. For me that is a natural break time anyway. 30 Mins and ready for next 3 hours

" In the wake of the decision, Aerojet stepped up its internal investment in the AR-1, although company officials concede that U.S. government funding — Congress has allocated $220 million this year for engine development work — will be necessary to complete the project. Aerojet Rocketdyne also made an announcement of its own, saying it was working with ULA on AR-1 development.  "
By the time Boeing and Lockheed Martin tapped Tory Bruno to take over ULA, the handwriting was on the wall: ULA was going to need a new rocket if it hoped to remain in business for the long haul.

I kinda feel bad for Tory. This situation is a big steaming turd pie that he got nominated to deal with. I wouldnt turn down the job either, but it still would suck really bad to be in such a lose lose. if he can keep ula together and actually make them competitive, i will be very impressed.

"  Grabe said that there was “excessive bearing wear” in the AJ-26 turbopump that caused the engine to fail, but did not disclose what cased that wear. "
Separate investigations into two high-profile commercial launch accidents six months ago are entering their final phases and will be completed in the next few months or, in some cases, weeks.

quite likely :D but you have to be sure. Take the Virgin accident for example: everyone was sure it was caused by the engine "burping" as it did a few times during ground tests... but then they apparently found telemetry of one of the pilots unlocking the feather mechanism while the engine was running.

People are idiots, example # 9762...
The Tesla Motors website and Twitter account have been hacked.
At least I don't think it's Elon's quirky sense of humour but of course one never knows.

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. ;)
