Everything Elon Musk goes here!

Tesla

  • September 22 will be a huge event: breakthrough Battery Day expected to announce million mile batteries, plaid power train, S & X refresh, possible Tesla batteries, Roadrunner project, supercapacitors etc.
  • huge contracts with CATL, LG, Panasonic & raw materials companies to increase Tesla cells tenfold
  • profitable Q2, big deliveries, demand exceeds car production = stock rocketing near half a trillion market cap
  • stock split at the end of august: 1/5th stock price, 5 times the volume so retail investors can buy cheaper
  • S&P500 did NOT include Tesla in their index which is a bit of a shocker but can still do in one of the upcoming quarters, stock falls in the meantime
  • Giga Shanghai phase 2 almost finished and ready to produce Modek Y, Giga Berlin drive unit roofing ceremony attended by Elon, Giga Austin ground work near complete, possible new Giga Asia (2nd in China? India?)
  • Model Y hits market early with positive reviews, production at China expected at year-end, Berlin in 2021. Possible Y redesign for Europe announced on September 22
  • Austin will make all Cybertrucks, Semis + East Coast 3 & Y. Fremont will make West Coast 3 & Y + all S, X & Roadster
  • self-driving close to city mode, big update coming this fall, Tesla working on Dojo neural net training HW, full autonomy not so soon
  • Uber-like self-driving Tesla ride share planned, human supervised version may come well before that
  • Solar roof & home / green energy plant battery farms ramping fast, possible vehicle to grid tech to replace peaker plants, make u money
SpaceX
  • Demo-2 mission complete returning Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley from ISS, Crew-1 mission targeted for October 23 Michael S. Hopkins, Victor J. Glover, Sichi Noguchi and Shannon Walker in a new capsule
  • newly designed Cargo Dragon missions come later this year, 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 with Super Heavy booster with twice the power of Saturn V is worked on for SpaceX's Solar System missions
  • Starship prototype SN5 & SN6 complete 150 hops, SN7.1 test tank to bust upcoming
  • Raptor engine reaches 330 bar chamber pressure, Boca Chica site busy building and testing
  • first vacuum-optimized Raptor engine finished
  • Super Heavy launchpad and High Bay being worked on
Starlink
  • SpaceX's internet satellite constellation rapidly expanding 60 satellites per launch, now with sun deflector to block sunlight reflecting back on Earth, disrupting space photography
  • testing underway with moderate up & download speeds and latency under 100 ms, which is a requirement to be able to tap into the US Rural Digital Opportunity Fund. Users need "UFO on a stick" style ground receiver
  • SpaceX now building record 120 Starlink sats per month and offers 3rd party ride share satellite rides on Starlink missions
The Boring Company
  • finished Las Vegas Convention Center tunnels, now building out stations, secured two 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?
Elon Musk
  • top10 richest man with net worth tied to Tesla stock (and SpaceX), tho no salary taken. Several performance trenches guarantee stock buying options on the cheap
  • factory reopening & G. Maxwell photo controversies, new son w/Grimes named X Æ A-12 ehh
  • working with CureVac on mRNA machines for future vaccine production, possibly for Covid
  • living life as real Iron Man (not yet flying around in robosuit... probably)

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..
