This shit started awhile ago with the discrimination lawsuits. All BS. Now miraculously all his cars are crashing and blowing up?? Ya right. (((They're))) out to get elon and his PUBLICALLY TRADED tesla is the attack vector. Spacex is private and probably harder to fuck with

Don't be shocked if you learn Google backdoored Tesla's servers and handed rocket technology over the North Korea.

In light of these actions, not promoting him was definitely the right move.

Ha. i'm guessing he isn't getting a good reference either.

If his code editing is what caused the deaths of those people who's cars crashed he should face criminal charges as well.

He already can face criminal charges for what he has done.

Just strap him in a Tesla, send it off a cliff and have the logs say it was in manual driving mode.

Let him have taste of his own medicine.

Possibly. He's definitely woke about the (((media))), as seen from his tweets, even if he keeps his wording just ambiguous enough to avoid giving ammo to (((their))) cries of anti-semitism.

This week he is our guy. Next week he will be shilling about global climate change or some other aspect of globo-gayplex and he won't be our guy anymore.

Eh he's a double edged sword IMO, he uses ROCs (Renewable Energy Credits) to obtain subsidies from the Federal Government which cost the taxpayers billions. He's certainly an ally but to what extent is hard to say, considering he sucks out our life blood almost suspiciously like a Jew.

The way he's getting (((attacked))) from all sides is food for thought. The enemy of my enemy is at least a temporary ally.

At first I didn't like him, also the fact plebbit worships him made me wary of him. But he's been winning me over lately.

I generally have been trying to hide that for years with old spice but maybe this will change my mind.

I get the joke. And there is actually some truth to the whole man smell thing. Don't overdo it with the old spice. Women respond on a chemical level to a bit of sweat. Its one of the many reasons dancing is such a big deal with them.

I'd bet a few dollars the saboteur is Asian and likely has ties to China if I had to guess. China would love to be able to hit the ground running when they decide to start making a good electric car. That's my best guess about this. I'll be surprised if this turns out to be a white American.

Or even a European, though both the Germans and the French are certainly untrustworthy businessmen.

the only one with commercial rockets is his company

United Launch Alliance makes five different commercial launch vehicles. The only thing SpaceX has going for it is cost reduction through reusability but the tradeoff there is increased risk (rocket go boom).

But isnt the inherent risk with all rockets that they could go boom?

[–] superAIDS 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

The Falcon family is newer and more complex. The more complex a system is, the higher the risk that something goes wrong. We've seen this with the multiple failed booster landings. Having said that, the majority of the complex shit is in the recovery stage of the rocket so theoretically there's not much risk to the payload, but if you just spent millions of dollars and several years building a satellite would you rather shell out the extra cash for a proven launch platform or would you go for the new cheaper version?

Personally I'm a big fan of SpaceX but there are reasons why the ULA rockets will remain in use for at least the near future.

And don’t forget Orbital ATK. Blue Origin and Virgin Galactic (did they recently change their name, I can’t remember) are both going to be entrants to the commercial space launch industry shortly as well. I know someone else who is working on a launch systems start up, too, but I have my doubts he will secure adequate funding.

ULA only has 3 launch vehicles (Atlas V, Delta II, Delta IV), your info-graphic only shows the two they currently fly most, Atlas V and Delta IV.

Nothing associated with re-usability has ever "gone boom" on a space X vehicle, unlike ULA's things associated with just launching going "boom". SpaceX Falcon 9 is about 1/2 the price of the equivalent Atlas V531 even WITHOUT re-using a booster and the Falcon 9 out lifts the Atlas by almost 3000 lbs.

Lol, my bad I suppose I should have looked more closely at the graphic before I posted it. Either way, even with those two vehicles they have far more configurations than the current Falcon family which makes them much more appealing to the government. The reason for this is that for a civilian launch a company will typically purchase a Falcon rocket and then sell all their remaining payload space to other companies, basically turning the rocket into a cosmic AirBnB. The gubmint doesn't like to do that for their secret squirrel type shit so it makes more sense to configure a rocket to their exact payload specifications instead of just wasting payload space on each launch.

Having said that, ULA has gotten the hint that reusability is important for their future survival. Currently they're working on an engine recovery system that operates via parachute and a helicopter sky-hook, their reasoning being that fuel tanks are cheap so why not just toss them?

Also, I think you might have phrased it wrong but I'd like to point out that lots of stuff related to reusability has gone boom for SpaceX. Hell, they even made a montage of it on their YouTube channel. The most recent thing to explode was the center stage of the Falcon Heavy.

Do they still fly the Delta II? We were told we were on one of their last and that was several years ago.

The Chinese are heavily into industrial espionage. Stealing the source code of Tesla's automated manufacturing system would be their style, allowing them to build their own electric car factories. Although the Chinese use the spying methods of the Koreans that originated in Japan.
