Two of Elon Musk's projects are about to become one, as Tesla's shareholders have "overwhelmingly approved" the proposed acquisition of SolarCity, CNBC reports. Having already gained the approval of SolarCity's shareholders, the deal is expected to be finalized in short order.

Musk owns just over 1/5th of both Tesla and SolarCity. He co-founded Tesla Motors, where he now serves as CEO, and is credited with the idea for SolarCity, which his cousins founded three years after Tesla was born. Musk is also chairman of SolarCity's board, but recused himself from the merger votes on both sides, given the circumstances.

Elon Musk has ‘not ruled out’ a UFO hitting the SpaceX rocket that exploded

SpaceX Rocket Explosion
In early September, one of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rockets undergoing testing exploded at Cape Canaveral. Thanks to some grainy video that shows birds flying across it, the internet's conspiracy theorists shifted to top gear and started accusing aliens (or the US military). As moon-landing as that might sound, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has said that investigators have "not ruled out" some kind of flying object -- an unidentified flying object, you might say -- causing the explosion. Tinfoil hat time, everyone.

In the plan, he's outlining how Tesla as we know it is going to change. Forget fast sports cars: the future Tesla will feature pickup trucks, semi trailers and urban buses, with those concepts to be unveiled next year.
