I love the way those look much more then the two seater they first came out with. I was able to sit inside the one my brother-in-law just bought and was in heaven. Now, they have autonomous ones that will do the driving for you? I just can't wait to get one of my own, just as soon as they iron out the kinks in this one.

Smarty pants alert! Not just the north pole.@mashable @elonmusk

 Elon Musk  ‏@elonmusk
-@shuhyta @mashable Exactly. This is the correct answer to a riddle I used to ask. The simple North Pole answer is just the kids version.
-  Another good riddle: drill a hole thru a sphere such that the height of what remains of the sphere is 10cm. What is its remaining volume?
- Hint: it is always the same. This can be solved by geometry, calculus of volumes or the easy way.
Alex Hern ‏@alexhern ( Tech reporter/Taylor Swift correspondent for the Guardian. )
 @elonmusk Well, the easy way is to choose a sphere of height 10cm, thus a hole of 0cm diameter; thus volume = 500π/3
Elon Musk  ‏@elonmusk
@alexhern Correct!

I started MindYourDecisions in 2007 and was amazed people cared about math and game theory, and this site even has been mentioned a few times in the press. I studied Economics and Mathematics at Stanford where I got straight A's. (almost). I love game theory and hope to read all the books on the ...

Until morale improves,

" However, experts are convinced that an administrative reform alone would not be enough to overcome a systemic crisis. “Things are bad everywhere, wherever you look, from the production and quality of components to control and execution,” says Ivan Moiseyev, head of the Space Policy Institute. “In order to overcome the crisis, people and resources are needed. The foundations of this systemic crisis were laid back in Soviet times, however, nothing has been done to address the existing issues.” "

A series of failures has prompted experts to speak of “a systemic crisis” in the Russian space industry. They maintain that the problem can be resolved through private investment, an international technological alliance and sector reforms.

When you have a dictator who runs things with an iron fist, people are not willing to work for you. The Russian space war machine is failing and you can see the cracks. It may seem funny, but it is unfortunate for the citizens of Russia to go through this abuse again.
The cracks are forming in North Korea as well, it is shown by the dictator killings of his key generals and family.

"  The P85D goes from a slow roll to full power, and dumping 700 lb-ft of instant torque onto the dyno and breaking one of the dyno belts.  "
Tesla's P85D is quite the car, as I'm sure you've heard us state many times since its release. And we've posted quite a few videos showcasing the electric car's impressive performance. But, have we ever posted a video of Tesla's offering literally breaking a dynamometer (a

Are #Tesla mobile container showrooms a "secret weapon" against anti-Tesla states: http://ow.ly/NhB3B #tsla #teslamotors #teslamodels
Riddle me this, Batman. When is an illegal store no longer a store, and therefore no longer illegal? When it has wheels. Surely Tesla's surprise 20'x35' mobile showrooms are the secret weapon tease...

Too bad!
So sad!
Does America really want a company with this lack of foresight handling the majority of National security launches?

" "We have to ... access commercial and civil opportunities. (We) cannot survive on two launches a year," Bruno told a lunch meeting hosted by the Washington Space Business Roundtable. "

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. ;)
