Cadillac ELR | Fully Charged
A drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas in the very refined Cadillac ELR plug-in-hybrid.
I was joined by Chelsea Sexton, Californian electric car advocate and all round wonderful person who was featured in the award winning documentary 'Who Killed the Electric Car?'

Engine. 1,400cc four cylinder petrol series hybrid with a 16.5 kWh lithium-ion battery
The all-electric range is around 35 miles, and total range is around 300 miles with a full battery and tank.
Top speed is 100mph – making it a similar performer to the Volt. 
The ELR was going to be be sold from the sole UK dealer in Manchester but they went bankrupt so I don't think you vcan buy one here.

Kids react to P85D's insane acceleration. "Oh no way! That is like... okay.”

How much food can you grow on a 30'x150' plot of land next to parking lot in Jackson Hole, WY, a mile above sea level? Vertical Harvest plans to grow 100,000 lbs/year! Check out their story here:

The problem with indoor growing is that the CO2 the plants use comes from a natural gas burner. Which means that instead of the plants pulling carbon out of the air and turning it into food, they are pulling carbon from natural gas and turning it into food. Lights and air conditioning of indoor grow rooms are SUPER energy intensive, which probably isnt from 100% solar.

What we really need is Afforestation and cultivation of dense plant growth everywhere, whether agricultural or not. There is no more efficient machine possible for pulling CO2 from the air than plants. and they also turn it into very useful things like food and wood (for building, not burning!!)

Two communications satellites blasted off Sunday aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, kicking off more than a half-year of novel maneuvers in orbit using plasma drive engines to position the spacecraft 22300 miles above Earth and link the Americas, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

" To reach the 22,300-mile-high circular orbit required for geostationary communications satellites, both relay stations will use innovative low-thrust ion propulsion systems instead of traditional liquid-fueled rocket thrusters. "
2 communications satellites headed for eventual slot in space; money-saving tech from Boeing used to send the craft toward their destination

More than you likely want to know about Bi-elliptics and Out-of-Plane Maneuvers.

On March 1 SpaceX's Falcon 9 deployed two all-electric communication satellites to a supersynchronous transfer orbit. This is the second: The EUTELSAT 115 West B. According to EUTELSAT's website it "will provide the Americas with new satellite capacity to reach markets serving high-growth data, video, mobility and government applications."

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. ;)
