"  We’ve been proud to support Creative Commons licenses since 2004, and we’ve become an important repository of U.S. Government works and historic images from galleries, libraries, archives, and museums around the world (check out The Flickr Commons for examples).
But we’ve heard from our community that we’re missing two important designations: Public Domain and Creative Commons 0 (CC0). Many members of our community want to be able to upload images that are no longer protected by copyright and correctly tag them as being in the Public Domain, or they want to release their copyright entirely under CC0.
So, starting today we’re happy to support these two new options. One of the first accounts on Flickr to change its designation was SpaceX, which has uploaded more than a hundred gorgeous images of its launches. These extraordinary photos are now available for others to freely use, enhance, and promulgate without restriction under copyright law.  "

The launch of SpaceX's next resupply run to the International Space Station has been rescheduled for April 13, officials said Tuesday. The Falcon 9 rocket's liftoff from Cape Canaveral was due for no earlier than April 10, but the launch date has been delayed to April 13.

I've been reading up on this guy alot over the years, he is a superstar to me and think he will be the one responsible for changing the very foundation of today and truly ushering in tomorrow.
They way he conducts his businesses is nothing short of brilliant! Many argue he should be allowing public investment, of course who wouldn't want to ride on this guy's coat tails and buy into spacex? I know I would, but truth be told the public has no buisness in that buisness at its current state, and truthfully hope he never allows that particular enterprise to become public. I think that's the role for those companies in the future trying to play catch up, and at which time I will be glade to invest in his most likely counterpart because truth be told there is more then enough space in space for alot of competition. With that being said again this guy shows vigor and is actively seeking public support in ventures like solar city and again with tesla because the public needs to be 100% invested and supportive of these ventures to be successfully self-sustainable and capable of continuing their development of these technologies. The above mentioned solar city in my opinion deffentley shows it has achieved such status.
I nominate Mr. Elon Musk to most likely be the guy to become the REAL LIFE IRON MAN!
With that being said I'll leave with saying Hat's off to you Mr. Elon Musk may you continue on your journey uninterrupted and help take humanity to the levels in which we were always Destined to achieve !

The US, with all of its amazing, windy coastline, currently still has zero offshore wind farms. That's about to change this summer with the construction of the modestly sized 30 MW Block Island Wind Farm off the Rhode Island coast. The beginning of a new era? Let's hope so!

It's good to be Elon.

Great line: “SpaceX is effectively getting paid by the Sun.”

I don't know... I was looking forward to this coming out way back in November, when the release date was March.

U.S. Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James told SpaceX founder Elon Musk to tell him that it would take another six months to certify the Falcon 9, effectively taking SpaceX out of the running for an NRO launch contract worth more than $100 million.

This caption should have read misunderstanding between US Air Force and the rest of humanity, because that's what was told in the media. Now they (Air Force) change their story.

Don't hold back. Tell us how you really feel.
"  I'm not saying to run out and buy shares of Tesla, but this negative attitude of crapping all over anything that even remotely smells like a long shot bores me. Why reach for the stars when you can just sit in a comfy chair and cradle your nuts?  "

Hanlon's Razor-
      " Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hanlon%27s_razor

Perhaps.
But as Elon has inelegantly stated.
“The people fighting it [Falcon 9 certification to bid for military launches] are really in the bureaucracy of the Pentagon, and the procurement officers, who then go and work at Boeing and Lockheed Martin, the prime contractors – which has actually happened,”

It's easy to understand why he may think this.

The US government is working like a large stalemate system. The US Congress needs to tell the Air Force, we are changing the way you do business. Spending ten's of millions on getting SpaceX certified is out of line. We need to trim the fat in the Air Force spending policies.

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. ;)
