Everything Elon Musk goes here!

Tesla

  • Tesla will be added to index fund S&P 500 come december 21 that will consolidate stock and squeeze remaining shorters down under 7%
  • Stock price over $500, market cap flies past $500 000 000 000
  • Record Q3 deliveries that may follow in another big number, 180k would guarantee 500k in pandemic 2020
  • Total cash flow at $14,5B despite building 3 factories & Fremont battery site, Tesla Energy also improving
  • Full Self Driving 4D update out in limited beta, check YouTube videos, setting stage for robotaxi in a few years
  • Tesla 4680 battery announced with cost cuts, extra range, better heat dissipation and performance, structural car integration, faster cell production, raw materials mining, anode and cathode manufacturing & getting rid of battery tabs, glues and cobalt eventually
  • Implications are huge: at some point during the next 5 years Tesla may become the largest battery manufacturer on the planet from a non-player in the field
  • huge contracts with CATL, LG, Panasonic & raw materials companies to protect supply chain from upcoming lithium and nickel shortages, discussing with Indonesia for nikkel mining / factory
  • $140K Model S Plaid announced, 520+ mile range, sub-2s 0-60mph, 1:30,300 Laguna Seca track record
  • 2021 Model 3 gets range boost, heat pump, chrome delete and visual updates
  • Giga Shanghai ready to trial produce Model Y by end of year, Model 3 exported to Asia, Europe
  • Giga Berlin half finished, closing in on licences, has new site boss, will use state-of-the-art paint shop, 8 separate Giga Presses and eventually local Model 3, 2, smaller Cybertruck production, starts with Model Y mid-2021
  • Giga Austin foundations underway, first Model Y mid-2021, then Cybertruck, Semi, Roadster & batteries
SpaceX
  • Crew-1 launched and docked Michael S. Hopkins, Victor J. Glover, Soichi Noguchi and Shannon Walker to ISS for 6-month mission
  • newly designed Cargo Dragon ready to roll out to supply ISS, Dragon XL planned for Lunar missions
  • NASA contracts SpaceX for possible Starship Moon lander & cargo transfer between Moon surface & Lunar orbit, USAF also gives major contract
Starship
  • Starship prototype SN9-12 building underway, SN8 faces test delays due to engine issues
  • Raptor engine reaches 330 bar chamber pressure, first vacuum-optimized Raptor engine fired up and lives to tell the tale
  • Boca Chica launch site expanding, new 81m High Bay almost ready, SH launch pad being built, lots of concrete work
Starlink
  • SpaceX's growing satellite internet has 800 operating sats, few thousand in a few years, public beta underway with low latency and fast speeds, some dropouts
  • $499 for starter package with Dishy McFlatface phase array antenna, $99 a month for uncapped internet undercutting competition
  • SpaceX building 120 sats per month with two Falcon 9 launches, 60 each & ride sharing small sats
  • Elon may spin-off and IPO Starlink (SpaceX is privately held)
The Boring Company
  • finished Las Vegas Convention Center tunnels, testing them with Teslas, secured more Vegas tunnel contracts, also Ontario, California airport one
  • introducing first custom-made boring machine called Prufrock, self driving tunnel cars probably 2022 (current Teslas will move ppl. until then). Prufrock stationed outside of LA, might start test tunnel between LA & Vegas
Neuralink
  • working on brain-machine interface for ppl. with disabilities, or wanting to expand consciousness
  • tests of pigs demonstrated on August 28 event, Neuralink surgical robot and 0.9 device announced, possible human tests soon
  • Elon on human - AI symbiosis: "if you can beat them, join them"
  • cyborgs? AI taking over humans? Skynet? Concerning stuff...

Show dem balls bro
Actually I just threw that in there cause it was the first thing that came to mind. The rocket does not have the classic "bell end", therefore, doesn't really look like a penis.

Perhaps Elon's penis has this weird aerodynamically adventegeous shape?

Elon Musk's CuckTruck smashed during demo

I really have to call that window breaking staged. I mean it's giving bad looks to the product obviously... but probably reached 10 times more ppl. than nothing happening, typical Musk take-all-publicity stunt. Then they'll come out with the "improved glass" or whatever. Still, fuck is up with the design team? :lol: Looks like it's from a 20yo computer game.

Elon's attention seeking again. :yep

He gets a kick out of squandering public money while making fools believe he's actually doing something worthwhile. The level of fanboy worship shows just how gullible folk are. He 'invents' nothing, just buys in to stuff already invented by 'real' geniuses.

The pleasure is intensified when he's really rubbing it in your face with ever more ridiculous stunts like the 'rocket' and the 'truck'.

He doesn't care about bad publicity as long as he's in the headlines.

Elon doesn't give a shit about anything else other than being the centre of attention..
