    I'm starting this thread to suggest that it be used by Gigafactory event attendees to post their photos and reports. My wife and I will be at the factory in about two hours, I hope, unless the line to get through the gate is really really long, which it may be.

    The video I posted by Kman above has 40 minutes of the full process of cell production including the cathode production, ovens, rollers, presses, dry age/storage, cell storage, power pack/wall production and equipment. Very interesting!

    Everybody keeps saying tesla.com has the official live stream but I ain't seeing anything anywhere on Tesla's site.

    What is the official live feed URL?

    Elon doesn't speak until 9PM Pacific-ish (so more like 10PM Pacific). Still over an hour away, at the very least.
