    Is this inside a multi story parking lot? or we don't know at this time where exactly it will be located?

    2 die in Tesla crash - Report says "nobody was in driver seat"

    This is the best article that was totally unbiased I have read on this crash. Here is a relevant section:

    SpaceX SN15 Experimental Test Vehicle

    Was this a high altitude launch? Just 10 KMs? High altitude for a plane maybe, but I thought for a rocket something like 50KMs should considered high altitude? Also the descent speeds were minuscule in this test compared to what one would expect in a real re-entry from orbit. So the fact that...

    SpaceX F9 - CRS 22 - LC-39A

    Thanks you. But I doubt any sats will be released when the Dragon is docked with ISS, especially the ones that can't do a Delta V. You don't want an object orbiting that close to ISS.

    Chevy Bolt - 200 mile range for $30k base price (after incentive)

    I am sure Lora Kolodny @CNBC is writing an article on this. Yeah right.

    Supercharger - Corsicana, TX

    Thank you, but I thought this one was upgraded to V3, though I don't remember how to figure that out now if a location is V2 or V3.

    Supercharger - Corsicana, TX

    Charged here yesterday with a low SoC of 30 miles remaining. One stall gave me just 40kw. Moved to the next one and got 115 kw consistently till 150 miles. The site was empty. Any reason why I would get a low rate on one of them? Also I rarely see 150 kw even with a low SoC, while I notice...

    Supercharger - Huntsville, TX

    I charged there again yesterday, and it was FULL. I was down to 40 miles of range, but it never got up beyond 60kw. As people left I tried different stalls and it was the same, between 55 to 60kw. Got frustrated and decided to leave after 20 minutes to drive down to Corsicana. Also I noticed...

    It is +1.21% ah. So maybe it will survive the lockup expiry.

    SpaceX F9 - CRS 22 - LC-39A

    So the trunk opens up and the satellite is deployed by some deployment mechanism? And the other cargo destined for ISS stays intact and continues its journey to ISS? .. interesting

    SpaceX F9 - CRS 22 - LC-39A

    Interesting when the rocket 2nd stage carries the Dragon, where do they carry the satellites? There are no fairings either on Dragon launch,.

    CNN lies. CNBC quotes the lie from CNN Jalopnik quotes CNN article and amplifies the lie Useless politician quotes the lie from CNBC. Now the lie has become the truth.

    2 die in Tesla crash - Report says "nobody was in driver seat"

    We don't know at this time. What we know is: Tesla & NHTSA tested on the same road and found out that: Autosteer cannot be enabled on that road. TACC can be enabled after 5 mph, with seats belts buckled. And even then it will only go up to 30 mph Seat belts were not buckled when the...

    How were you able to shift from P to D without sitting in the driver seat?

    2 die in Tesla crash - Report says "nobody was in driver seat"

    Any testing other than on that street, starting from that same location is of no value and does not prove or disprove anything. If it proved that AP can be engaged, it again means nothing unless the 5 others things I mentioned earlier can be proved.

    2 die in Tesla crash - Report says "nobody was in driver seat"

    One has to prove that: 1. AP can be enabled in that street starting from that same exact point where they started driving 2. AP can be enabled without a weight on the driver seat (100% not possible) 3. AP can be enabled without seat belt being buckled (100% not possible) 5. AP had wrong speed...

    Blue Origin - New Shepard

    Can someone tell what is exciting and a big deal about launching a rocket straight up 100 miles and getting it back straight down, with or without humans? Lets cut the technicality of sub-orbital crap out. To call those passengers "astronauts" is an insult to Yuri Gagarin, Shepard, Armstrong...

    SpaceX F9 - Starlink V1.0-L23 - SLC-40

    No. I just made it up. The fact that someone could even be wondering if this could be real, speaks volumes of how much trash reporters like Lora and Russ have taken spreading negativity and FUD to the next level. Even the most spoofy Onion like article is not too far from what these guys write.

    Tesla removes regenerative braking strength option

    I can only pity the folks who get spooked by the sudden slowdown when you take your foot off the pedal, and start hating EVs because of that. Because once you get a hang of it (which will take utmost a day or two) you will realize that is perhaps the no 1 feature you will fall in love in an...

    SpaceX SN11 Experimental Test Vehicle

    Agreed. Setting up a test-rig is pretty complex, but I doubt if any of the previous issues seen so far, would have been identified by such a setup.

    US Market Situation and Outlook (Rob Stark's American Megathread)

    I would guess there will be 20k EVs just in the DFW area and north texas.
  32. E

    SpaceX SN11 Experimental Test Vehicle

    Agreed. It seems the flip maneuvers are the ones that make the fuel flow and engine relight challenging. So you might as well simulate that on a stand if possible using the same Raptor engines but overall a smaller prototype of 2nd stage.

    The "uncontrolled reentry" of the 2nd stage

    The way I understood orbital mechanics - Every object in orbit has two components: - a velocity vector that is tangential to the elliptical (lets assume circular for simplicity) orbit. This is the speed the 2nd stage imparts on the satellite. If an object is orbiting at say 10 km/second, it is...

    US Market Situation and Outlook (Rob Stark's American Megathread)

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Pointing out the headlines and the premise of the article is 100% wrong is not being too sensitive. It is just pointing out the facts. Moron reporter: "When Sun rose in the west this morning, ...." "No Sun did not rise in the west and has not done that ever" "oh you are being too sensitive".

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Agreed. Without tabless, 4680 is dead on arrival. So the question is, does Tesla get paid royalty every time tabless is used in any form factor?

    For the public it is show. For SpaceX engineers those closeup visuals are additional data that can go with the telemetry. Sometimes visuals gives you valuable clues, when you lose telemetry.

    How are quality issues with Model Y currently

    It is interesting that I bought a Model S, a Model 3 and now driving a Model Y and had close to zero issues - cosmetic or otherwise. Sure one of the door handles of the Model S was changed and some suspension component was replaced in the 3. For that matter I have looked but not (visually)...

    SpaceX SN11 Experimental Test Vehicle

    While the previous flights and crashes seemed par for the course for the innovation SpaceX is pushing, but this one somehow feels like a wasted opportunity, more due to hubris, lack of attention and a simple rush to get things moving to keep the launch cadence going. Just a gut feel. For...

    Supercharger - Dallas, TX - North Central Expressway

    The one in Legacy drive is not that convenient if you are travelling across 121. The location of the chargers up a the top level of a multi story parking lot in a busy street makes it less useful. They need one right at 121-75 junction. Or better still, one somewhere in 121 and another one in...

    Good thing they scrubbed. Visibility was very poor and it would dampened the joys of watching with any ground cameras

    SpaceX SN11 Experimental Test Vehicle

    I almost booked a flight to get down to Brownsville yesterday morning, but glad checked twitter at the last moment. I did drive down the week before though and had real good time driving and also over there ogling at SN11, BN1 and others.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I don't know what you are talking, but there was no FSD beta before Nov last year. So how could he or anyone would have made a video claiming FSD one year ago? I have seen Omar's and many other videos. They are all genuine, but again it is possible some of them are not posting the ones that fails.

    Driving from Dallas to Boca Chica & back with family

    So many questions popped in my mind as I was driving through those wind farms. - As I was driving through I noticed every one of them I could spot was spinning. Not even one I could see that was not. It was a glorious sight. But the next day though (around the same time) only 20% of them were...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    NO You are wrong. I have seen several of Omar's videos since January and in many of those he publishes the slower version of the video too, and there are NO disengagements beyond what he does highlight. The trip from SF to LA and then from LA to SF has been over scrutinized by TSLAQ and the car...
