    There are rumors that SpaceX will be launching a Model X to the surface of the moon as a publicity stunt. The Model X would then be remotely controlled as a moon rover.

    If true...talk about advertising!

    The moon? Now that would be silly.

    We're going to Mars, and we'll need a way to get around. I hear tale it's a mighty big place...and the petrol stations are few and far between.

    "If true"? You can't be serious.
    Whatever you heard or read is obviously satiric in nature.

    My suggestion to Tesla...Build a Model X with solar panels ...so it can charge itself.

    Have they even figured out how to reach Mars without excessive radiation exposure?

    For the radiation, they can filter it out using the MX HEPA filter!
    What, no?
    Seems in line with the logic of solar panels on the car and sending an MX to the moon!
