Musk is likely to make it to Mars before Tesla is profitable. professor

I’ve got my fingers crossed for Tesla’s success too. I drove one recently in the hands-off navigation mode in heavy traffic on a winding twisting highway interchange on an overcast day. Scary as hell. I think I held my breath.

Those cars are like maintenance free except if the batteries ever need replaced. The electric motors decelerate a Tesla real quick so breaks get little use. Wild quiet ride. Talk about torque. And acceleration is like 0-65 in < 4 seconds. wow

If they can ever get the batteries perfected it should be great. Right now Tesla bleeds money. They say the plant is a high tech sweat shop with workers pushed to the point of passing out. Bring on the robots I guess.beer

Incredible Galrads. I am not at all surprised that one day, all these space travels being conceived now will be a reality soon.

Sir Richard Branson has already collected billions of dollars for travel and living in space in his project. Virgin Galactica.

He put his own Tesla Roadster in space with the with the SpaceX Falcon Heavy launch and it’s now on its way to Mars with a dummy spaceman in the driver’s seat and David Bowie music playing......

I would love to have worked with someone pushing the different technology envelopes like Musk is. That’s genius imo.

I wish someone could give me a logical reason for putting a sports car with a crash dummy into space other than theatrics.

He's out doing the US space program and the Russians too. Pretty impressive. I think the Chinese are getting serious too. Thanks for sharing.
