Tesla will be around for a long time yet and I’d wager will outlive some of the more traditional car makers. They will be future market leaders in the automative industry ahead of even some of the bigger traditional names that dominate the industry today.

Yeah, I totally get why. You don't want a panicky kid thrashing about (reminds me of an Oor Wullie story, when he claimed he got a black eye rescuing a guy from drowning, when he was embarrassed to admit he'd been  hit with a baby's rattle. Toxic masculinity never did him any harm).

Is your opinion based on any facts or just a hunch? It's a bit vague to say "some of the more traditional car makers". The big players (Toyota, VW Group, Honda, etc) are always likely to be around. Smaller manufacturers get swallowed up by other manufacturers or simply go out of business. It's no yard stick to say Tesla may outlast a non giant manufacturer.

Speaking of batteries, Panasonic (who have just announced a joint venture with Toyota to produce batteries for electric vehicles) make batteries for Tesla.

:lol:  Get him told.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

Starlink getting closer to operation, could begin limited service next year.  This really does have the potential to change the world.

Quote
SpaceX is seeking US approval to deploy up to 1 million Earth stations to receive transmissions from its planned satellite broadband constellation.

The Federal Communications Commission last year gave SpaceX permission to deploy 11,943 low-Earth orbit satellites for the planned Starlink system. A new application from SpaceX Services, a sister company, asks the FCC for "a blanket license authorizing operation of up to 1,000,000 Earth stations that end-user customers will utilize to communicate with SpaceX's NGSO [non-geostationary orbit] constellation."

The application was published by FCC.report, a third-party site that tracks FCC filings. GeekWire reported the news on Friday. An FCC spokesperson confirmed to Ars today that SpaceX filed the application on February 1, 2019.

If each end-user Earth station provides Internet service to one building, SpaceX could eventually need authorization for more than 1 million stations in the US. SpaceX job listings describe the user terminal as "a high-volume manufactured product customers will have in their homes."

"These user terminals employ advanced phased-array beam-forming and digital processing technologies to make highly efficient use of Ku-band spectrum resources by supporting highly directive, steered antenna beams that track the system's low-Earth orbit satellites," SpaceX's new application says. "Consistent with SpaceX's space station authorization, these Earth stations will transmit in the 14.0-14.5 GHz band and receive in the 10.7-12.7 GHz band... SpaceX Services seeks authority to deploy and operate these Earth stations throughout the contiguous United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands."

Each user terminal "will communicate only with those SpaceX satellites that are visible on the horizon above a minimum elevation angle," the application says.

"The proposed user terminal is a flat phased array capable of steering its beams to track SpaceX's NGSO satellites passing within its field of view," the application also says. "As the terminal steers the transmitting beam, it also adjusts the power to maintain a constant level at the receiving antenna of its target satellite, compensating for variations in antenna gain and path loss associated with the steering angle."

Falcon Heavy could be launching again in a week or so.  Going for engine tests and, if successful, will be launching a comms satellite.  Hopefully they'll manage to land all three boosters this time.

This will never get old. Landed all three boosters this time.

Apparently he's agreed to have his tweets checked by lawyers, prior to posting. The most expensive free speech, ever.

"Elon Musk faces trial over 'pedo' tweet"
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-48238576

Just another tiny example of how the BBC has gone to s***. That's a tabloid headline right there. Once upon a time the beeb wouldn't have lowered itself. This no doubt contributed to it's reputation as 'a bit stuffy', and competition for clicks has probably played a part, but there really isn't any need. But then the beeb have been obsessed with paedophilia recently.

So what should their headline have been? It's factually correct and 'pedo' is in quotes as it's what Musk tweeted.

Elon Musk faces trial over tweets, would have been sufficient, surely.

I don't see what is wrong with their headline narrowing down which tweets he was facing trial over.
