~ Elon's Asperground - SpaceX completes 100th successful Falcon 9 mission in a row ~

  • CHB will be closing down as of 31st July 2021. It's been a brilliant experience to run the website for the past 9 years, however it's time for me to move onto different projects. Thanks to every single person involved, from staff, former staff, posters old and current. All support means more than anyone knows. Thanks for your understanding.

Everything Elon Musk goes here!

Tesla

  • record $500k 2020 deliveries followed by quarterly record opening of in 184K Q12021
  • new EV tax credits proposed under Biden could increase demand, worldwide support of EVs too
  • TSLA stock currently around $700 or $700B market cap, up and down but under control in S&P500
  • 4680 battery cells under final development in Fremont, Giga Texas, Berlin planning own plant, Panasonic, LG also to use 4680 format
  • Tesla looking into lithium and nickel mining, lithium hydroxide processing, cathode manufacturing and more metallurgy
  • 6000 ton Giga Presses installed in Fremont, Berlin and Texas for 2 then 1 piece casting, Cybertruck gets 8000 ton machine
  • $120K Model S & X Plaid announced with insane speeds and in-car gaming console + yoke steering wheel with imminent delivery, $150K Model S Plaid+ in 2022
  • Limited Cybertruck and Semi production expected later this year, but more likely early 2022, all models get range and design refresh
  • India entry close, UK looking for a Gigafactory, nickel talks in Indonesia, Berlin may be delayed 6 months over contract
  • Giga China expanding into Phase III, design center opening for local Model 2 design and tap into Asian engineering and talent
Full Self-Driving Beta
  • Tesla's level 2 autonomy system is called FSD that can accelerate, break and change lanes on highways with extreme accuracy today, limited use in cities
  • FSD Beta is the name for autopilot on city streets following traffic rules, currently at version 8.2 and open to 2000 testers, Beta 9 will be colossal upgrade ditching radar and opening beta to the masses
  • drivers help train the neural net but must be ready to take over for any mistake, Tesla to revoke beta from irresponsible drivers
  • FSD costs $10K now but will up significantly, monthly subscription coming, then possibly robotaxi network first with human supervision
  • completely autonomous Tesla robotaxi can make $100K a year driving itself out with limited wear, hence the high FSD prices, robotaxi market expected to hit $1-3Trillion by 2030. Yes, with a T.
SpaceX
  • Falcon 9 booster B1051 flies and lands record 10th time making rocket history, well done!
  • 100+ successful Falcon 9 launches, most landed first stage booster for reuse, one at 9 launches and landings, fairing catcher ships retired
  • big launch cadence in 2021, Crew-3 for September, Inspiration4 taking four private citizens late 2021, paid by billionaire Jared Isaacman
  • NASA awards SpaceX Lunar human lander using Starship Moon variant, but then puts such contract on hold due to Blue Origin & Dynetics protest
Starship
  • Interplanetary Startship prototype under development in Boca Chica, TX, with many booms in trial and error deveopment
  • Starship SN8, 9 blows up upon landing, SN11 mid-air, SN10 lands but then blows
  • SN15 launches, lands, survives - may refly soon! SN16 ready for rollout, SN20 under construction for Super Heavy booster
  • BN1 super heavy pathfinder model built and disassembled, BN2 & BN3 under build for actual testing
  • 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 into Starbase City, orbital launch pad, on-site methane and oxygen manufacturing under construction
  • Elon invests into nearby Brownville development & infrastructure
  • Used oil rigs Phobos and Deimos being retrofit to ocean Starship launch pad
  • Super heavy will be caught mid air upon landing, Starship too possibly if it can't stick the landing
  • Skirmishes with FAA overseeing civilian space testing and local public safety
Starlink
  • Starlink is SpaceX's space-based fast internet service in build-out and beta, around 40 ms latency, 400/40 Mbps downlink/uplink with intermittent dropout between satellites
  • purpose is to give access to information, communication and financials to rural and completely remote and poor population where internet and mass communication is non-existent or super slow
  • Starlink to finance SpaceX's efforts to make human consciousness multi-planetary with a self-sustaining colony on Mars, may IPO
  • satellite constellation nears 1500 sats with first round completition, thousands of newer ones next year expected to have laser interconnect to satellite-to-satellite data transfer
  • $499 for starter kit with Dishy McFlatface phase array antenna, $99 a month for uncapped internet undercutting much slower satellite internet competition
  • 500k preorders, Starlink service available in more and more countries
  • SpaceX' building 120 sats per month with two Falcon 9 launches, 60 each & ride sharing small sats, Starlink factory planned for Austin
The Boring Company
  • 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
  • finished Las Vegas Convention Center tunnel and opens soon for operation (Covid-19 permitting)
Neuralink
  • Working on brain-machine interface for ppl. with disabilities or wanting to expand consciousness
  • Monkey playing MindPong, controlling the game with his mind, Neuralink chip implants brain acitivity and sends signal to gaming console
  • Elon on human - AI symbiosis: "if you can beat them, join them", first human tests coming perhaps later this year
  • Cyborgs? Killer anime robot girls? AI-Elon taking over? Skynet? Concerning shit...
Elon Musk
  • Admits he has Asperger's on SNL
  • Takes new title at Tesla: Technoking of Tesla, also calls himself the Dogefather
  • Working with CureVac on mRNA machines for mass vaccine production, incl. Covid
  • Moved to Texas to focus on Giga Texas, Starship development
  • Wants to speed up humanity's transition to sustainable energy & make life multi-planetary
  • Huge net worth tied to Tesla & SpaceX stock, no salary taken. Tesla performance trenches guarantee stock buying options on the cheap
  • living life as real Iron Man (flying rockets not robosuits), fathering many children per hot chicks, making shitty techno tracks and posting memes on Twitter

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..
