Elon Musk suggests L.A. Mayor open to Boring Co. tunnel network

 Elon Musk says that he’s had “promising conversations” with L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, regarding the potential of a network of tunnels underneath the city that would allow for a high-speed transit network unburdened by surface traffic. That’s the vision Musk’s recently founded Boring Company hopes to make a reality, as illustrated by a concept video debuted by Musk… Read More

Elon Musk is planning a city on Mars, and here’s why

elon musk mars

If there's one thing you can definitively say about Elon Musk it's that most certainly does not lack ambition. The boss of SpaceX, Tesla, and The Boring Company makes more grand plans before breakfast than you have in your entire life. His most frequent muse is travel to Mars, which he has been a proponent of for a long while, but in a recent article in the journal New Space, Musk dives deep into his vision for not just a visit to Mars, but the emergence of an entire Mars society.

Why Paris Agreement supporters should rally behind Tim Cook, and not Elon Musk

tim cook

Climate change is real, and an overwhelming majority of scientists and researchers in various fields have put the blame for the gradual warming of the Earth squarely on mankind. At this point, there's really no denying it unless you're willing to ignore countless studies from every developed nation. That's why, when Donald Trump announced that he was pulling the United States out of the Paris Agreement, it was met with backlash from democrats, republicans, and countless US allies. Tim Cook and Elon Musk are leading the charge against the decision from Silicon Valley, but not everyone believes they're both in it for the right reasons.

Elon Musk says a Model S will drive itself from New York to LA this year

Model S Tesla

One of the great things about Tesla is that its vehicles are beloved for a variety of different reasons. So while some Model S owners, for example, may point to raw acceleration as a key selling point, other owners might instead champion the car's safety profile or environmental friendliness. Many Model S and Model X owners, though, are particularly drawn to Tesla's Autopilot software, all the more so because it's constantly improving and evolving via convenient over-the-air software updates.

Russian spaceflight director thinks Elon Musk is out of his mind

elon musk spacex

Elon Musk — you know, that square-jawed billionaire who can't stop building groundbreaking companies and wants to merge your brain with a computer in his spare time — has made it very clear that his company, SpaceX, plans to send paying customers in a trip around the moon in 2018. As far as Musk is concerned, the event is on schedule, but one very high-profile man within the Russian private spaceflight industry feels pretty strongly that the American businessman is completely out of his mind.

Working in the Tesla factory sounds like hell

Tesla Gigafactory union jobs

Tesla is doing everything different to a regular car company, and making a lot of friends along the way. Not negotiating on price and selling direct to consumers has given Tesla a reputation for being fair and friendly, and made traditional car companies look increasingly out of date.

But there's one other big difference: Tesla's workers aren't unionized, and from time to time, rumors surface about bad working conditions in the company's factories. A new report in the Guardian cites 15 former and current workers to paint a picture of a factory where everyone is stressed out, overworked, and potentially in real danger.

Elon Musk thinks Tesla is just beginning to get big

Elon Musk Tesla

Tesla shares have been on a rampage lately. Over the past six weeks, Tesla's stock price has skyrocketed 25%, with shares currently trading in the $304 range. With a market cap of nearly $50 billion, Tesla is currently more valuable than Ford -- which has a market cap of $46 billion -- and is close to surpassing GM which currently boasts a market cap of $51 billion. Predictably, Tesla's valuation has elicited ridicule from critics who can't help but point out that Tesla in 2016 delivered 76,230 vehicles. In stark contrast, Ford during the first half of 2016 alone delivered 1.35 million cars to customers.

Elon Musk’s grand plan for your brain includes adding new senses

elon musk neuralink

Between serving as the boss of both Tesla and SpaceX, you probably wouldn't imagine that Elon Musk has a ton of time to devote to new business ventures. You'd be wrong, because he's about to be the CEO of a third company and — if you can possibly believe it — this new startup has ambitions that go far beyond gas-free driverless cars and space exploration. It's called Neuralink, and its ultimate aim is to merge man and machine into something much greater than either.

Elon Musk’s SpaceX just won a huge battle with the space industry

Elon Musk SpaceX launch

For the last decade, a joint Boeing-Lockheed Martin venture called the United Launch Alliance has been the only company allowed to bid on launching military satellites into space. Elon Musk's SpaceX spoiled that party last year when it won its first US Air Force contract, but the ULA didn't bid on that contract.

Now, for the first time, SpaceX has gone head-to-head with the establishment, and it won. SpaceX has received a $96.5 million contract to launch a new GPS satellite into orbit, which beat out a rival bid from the ULA, thanks to SpaceX's much lower pricetag.
