SpaceX explosion report: Strut failure on 5500 PSI helium tank caused to to break loose and slam into the top of the LOX tank causing the failure. submitted by Ken_Trough to technology

They were able to replicate the fault by testing thousands of the struts. Several failed well below the certified/rated load.

Musk invites the best hackers in the world to attack the Tesla Model S in just three weeks at Defcon (x-post /v/tesla) submitted by Ken_Trough to technology

It's actually a fantastic idea for just the reason you stated. This is a controlled environment with full disclosure of all discoveries. Any black eye that discovered vulnerabilities would create is far outweighed by the benefits of having the best and brightest find the weaknesses of your product so that you can rapidly address bugs and holes you didn't know about the day before. The vulnerabilities are already there and Tesla doesn't yet know about them. This is free (or prize supported) work being done by the best and the brightest for the benefit of Tesla and its customers. It's a huge boon overall and really shows how much Elon Musk "gets it" when it comes to technology strategies.

Under .9 second from the beginning of the problem to the end of all data streams. Wow. Also the strut failed at 1/5 the rated load, suggesting it was a contractor supplied part. SpaceX will test all struts in the future and should be flying again before the end of the year after all further review is completed.

Today, as far as I can tell, I got banned from the subverse /v/mensrights because I already had a username that a moderator's friend wanted. How do I appeal that? submitted by IronJohn to AskVoat

I'm not accusing him of stealing the name. He registered it first at voat and should be able to keep it. Just saying he doesn't have grounds to complain as the other guy has had the moniker for over four years elsewhere.

It doesn't matter in terms of the new guy being able to use the name here. It just means the new guy doesn't get to bitch that he's the "original".

I didn't say you don't get the name here. You registered it first. Just quit bitching that you are the "original". You missed that by over four years is all. Quit being a butthurt troll. You got the name. Appeal your ban and get on with your day.
