    Interesting that in the new video Musk is now claiming to have delivered 28 cars and producing them at a rate of 5 per week. Those numbers are larger than any that I have heard the company say so far.

    I think instead of answering the question she asked, he answered the question he wanted to answer. My guess is that car #28 just finished the Hethel production line.

    That lady is not too swift. I winced when she referred to Isaac Newton as a great explorer (and again when she referred to the Phoenix lander as a rover).

    And Elon winced when she mentioned the USAF as the first Falcon 9 customer. Up until now I'm sure that was just "government".


    Also - 29 cars were apparently built at the time of Goodwood, so that could well be higher by now.

    Not sure if it's public knowledge, but actually there was a USAF satellite that was on a previous Falcon 1 launch that got destroyed. I figured he thought about that when he winced.
