    Wow, train, car, and aircraft all mentioned in a single event.

    Perhaps Tesla should investigate landing gear issues.

    If SpaceX can land a rocket, Tesla should be able to land a car.

    Wonder if the new roadster with the space X package could have helped in this situation...

    Don't know about the new roadster, but the old one seemed to handle space flight pretty well.
