New Tesla software to offer 'full' autonomy, Musk says

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

Most cars lack the lidar sensors and 360-degree cameras that can be used to detect lanes, obstacles, and traffic-sensors that are ubiquitous in autonomous test vehicles. Tesla's "misleading" marketing, he said, has had the risky effect of "providing overconfidence and building you up to thinking it's safer than it actually is". Okay, so perhaps Musk's hyperbolic nature is shining through when he's talking about a Tesla flying, but subsequent tweets reveal that the Tesla CEO isn't kidding around when it comes to outfitting a Tesla Roadster with rocket technology.

After his tweet, Tesla's official website added a new "Autopilot" webpage which explicitly states that "Please note that Self-Driving functionality is dependent upon extensive software validation and regulatory approval, which may vary widely by jurisdiction".

As to the benefits, Musk noted that "these rocket engines dramatically improve acceleration, top speed, braking & cornering".

Rocket-powered Tesla Roadster may fly, Elon Musk says

A Tesla Inc employee organising a union was asked by a supervisor and company security guards to leave the factory after handing out pro-union flyers, the worker said at a National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) hearing on Monday over whether Tesla had violated federal safeguards for employee activity.

Tesla founder Elon Musk recently gave an inside tour of his factory to CBS This Morning. And we think that is enough time for the tech-maverick Elon Musk to figure out how those 10 rockets will blend into the vehicle.

As it turns out, he wasn't.

Big Boy Toys! Elon Musk's Flamethrowers Are Now Available
Musk replied to him: "We don't think our product will be the cause of any wildfires, but The Boring Company is donating $10k". The most eager customers can forgo the bidding process and pay the eBay "buy it now price", which is as high as $20,000.

The thrusters Musk are talking about would be composite overwrapped pressure vessel or COPV. "The air exiting the thrusters would immediately be replenished whenever vehicle pack power draw allowed operation of the air pump, which is most of the time".

The new Roadster is due in 2020 and is expected to cost US$250,000 (RM997,375), have a 200-kWh battery and supposedly drive 620 miles per charge.

The disclosure about the "SpaceX Package" for the next-gen Tesla Roadster was made by Musk earlier this week. Musk has regularly referred to the spots as "kids seats".

Neal Boyd, Season 3 ‘America’s Got Talent’ Winner, Dies at 42
According to TMZ , the star had "a known health condition" relating to his heart and there will be no autopsy carried out. Boyd released two albums following his AGT victory, My American Dream in 2009 and My Christmas Wish in 2013.

The "SpaceX" option would therefore replace the back seating.

Tesla produced the first version of the Roadster from 2008 to 2012. It was the first electric vehicle with a top speed exceeding 200 kilometres per hour (124 mph).

The electric auto company unveiled the new all-electric Roadster alongside its Semi truck last November. Pre-orders have begun and require a $50,000 deposit. Just read about The Boring Company's flamethrowers. 20,000 of the products, officially called "Not a Flamethrower" have been sold to help raise money for the Boring Company's underground drilling venture.
