Elon Musk’s “doppelgänger” from China banned from local social media

Elon Musk’s “doppelgänger” from China banned from local social media

Elon Musk’s “doppelgänger” from China, who has been fondly dubbed by the internet as “Yi Long Musk,” has reportedly been banned from major Chinese social media platforms. The social media user caused quite a lot of headlines in the past due to his striking resemblance to the Tesla CEO. Videos of the Elon Musk “doppelgänger” from China went viral on international social media platforms, and it did not take long before the CEO himself commented on his lookalike. Musk even jokingly suggested that he may be “partly Chinese.” He also stated that he would love to meet with his “doppelgänger”...

ARK founder Cathie Wood says Tesla removal from S&P ESG is 'ridiculous'

ARK founder Cathie Wood says Tesla removal from S&P ESG is 'ridiculous'

ARK Invest found Cathie Wood called Tesla’s removal from the S&P’s Environment, Social & Governance Index “ridiculous” after the automaker was not included on the list due to “a decline in criteria-level scores” in low-carbon strategies and its “codes of business conduct.” On Wednesday, Tesla was removed from the S&P’s ESG Index after a standard rebalancing. While Tesla, which has accelerated the world’s transition to sustainable energy, especially through transportation, was removed from the index, companies like Exxon, a global giant in oil production, remained. Anything is...

Elon Musk's deal with Twitter not 'on hold,' company won't renegotiate from $44bn

Elon Musk's deal with Twitter not 'on hold,' company won't renegotiate from $44bn

Elon Musk’s deal with Twitter, which was agreed upon on April 25 for $44 billion, is not on hold and will move forward, company executives told employees on Thursday. Musk, who said the deal was on hold pending proof of Twitter’s estimation of bots among its active users, has been backtracking the deal for several days and announced he would seek a lower price. Twitter does not plan to oblige. A new report from Bloomberg on Thursday indicates Musk’s deal with Twitter will not be renegotiated after the Tesla CEO stated he could not be given concrete proof of the platform’s population of...

SpaceX begins installing new 'Raptor 2' engines on Super Heavy booster

SpaceX begins installing new 'Raptor 2' engines on Super Heavy booster

SpaceX has begun installing new ‘Raptor 2’ engines on Super Heavy Booster 7 after the prototype completed a range of tests and returned to the company’s South Texas ‘Starbase’ rocket factory. Earlier this month, SpaceX transported Booster 7 (B7) in the opposite direction, returning the 67-meter (~220 ft) tall rocket to Starbase’s orbital launch site (OLS) for the second time after it was forced to head back to the factory for repairs. Repairs completed, SpaceX dove headfirst into the process of verifying that the booster had been returned to full health and immediately filled its tanks to...

Elon Musk's Tesla 'Alien Dreadnought' factory is coming to form--just not where critics expect it

Elon Musk's Tesla 'Alien Dreadnought' factory is coming to form--just not where critics expect it

There are many aspects of the Tesla ecosystem and Elon Musk’s past forecasts that critics love to attack. Among the most notable of these is the CEO’s vision of an “Alien Dreadnought” factory, an electric car production facility that is so automated, it resembles the extraterrestrial machines depicted in pop culture. Contrary to what critics today would say, Tesla’s hyper-automated factory is actually coming to form — it’s just not where it was initially expected to be.Elon Musk’s was initially intended for the production of the Model 3. Perhaps this is the reason why Musk originally...

Tesla owners make young EV fan's birthday extra special despite ongoing pandemic

Tesla owners make young EV fan's birthday extra special despite ongoing pandemic

Tesla Model 3 owner Rick Delashmit’s 14-year-old son was looking forward to his upcoming 15th birthday. Being an avid Tesla fan, his 15th would mark the day when he could start taking driver’s education classes. It would also be the day when he experiences the family’s Model 3 from the driver’s seat.Unfortunately for Delashmit’s son, the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has resulted in all driver’s education courses getting canceled. That’s an unfortunate situation on its own, and it’s made worse by the fact that so much about the situation was out of the Model 3 owner’s control. This was when...

NASA plans to purchase another seat on Russian Soyuz after SpaceX

NASA plans to purchase another seat on Russian Soyuz after SpaceX

NASA and SpaceX are from U.S. soil for the first time in nearly a decade. The collaboration is designed to give NASA more flexibility when it comes to launching crewed missions.When the agency’s storied shuttle program came to an end in 2011, it left NASA dependent upon Russian rockets as its sole means of transporting astronauts to and from the space station. But the arrangement, which costs NASA roughly $85 million per seat, was always intended as a temporary solution.NASA wanted to support a burgeoning commercial market, so it turned to private industry to build its next-generation space...

SpaceX's first orbital Starship rocket engine is almost ready for testing

SpaceX's first orbital Starship rocket engine is almost ready for testing

CEO Elon Musk says that SpaceX is “about a month away” from testing a rocket engine that will be essential for Starship and its Super Heavy booster to reach their full potential.Known as Raptor Vacuum, the engine – as its name suggests – is a variant of the base Raptor engine optimized for maximum performance and efficiency in the vacuum of space. Although Starship could technically still function and likely reach orbit with only sea level-optimized Raptors installed, it would likely significantly limit the amount of payload it could carry into Earth orbit and would especially harm the...

Musk seeks Twitter deal discount, believes 20 percent of accounts are spam

Musk seeks Twitter deal discount, believes 20 percent of accounts are spam

Elon Musk may be looking for a better deal with his Twitter acquisition and $44 billion may now be sounding like a price that is just a bit too high. During a tech conference called “All In” in Miami on Monday, Musk remarked that he believes 20 percent of users on the platform are fake or spam accounts, and it may be the reason the Tesla CEO did not rule out the possibility of a deal reformation that would require him to pay a lower price. According to Bloomberg, Musk stated the possibility of a reformed Twitter does was not “out of the question,” a comment that surged further losses in...
