The amazing long history (1826 — 2022) of ELECTRIC CARS!

Posted by in categories: climatology, Elon Musk, robotics/AI, sustainability

A great video on the history of electric cars. I love the AI voice. Also notice Tesla was incorporated in July 2003 by Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning as Tesla Motors. The company’s name is a tribute to inventor and electrical engineer. Elon Musk was an investor.

While electric vehicles (EV) have only recently begun to challenge the internal combustion engine (ICE) for the future of our roads, EVs have been around for over a century. The long history of EVs has been one of many twists and turns.

Eliminating Death Doesn’t Mean Life Will Get Boring

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, computing, cyborgs, Elon Musk, life extension, neuroscience, philosophy, transhumanism

In my new Newsweek Op-Ed, I tackle a primary issue many people have with trying to stop aging and death via science. Hopefully this philosophical argument will allow more resources & support into the life extension field:

Philosophers often say if humans didn’t die, we’d be bored out of our minds. This idea, called temporal scarcity, argues the finitude of death is what makes life worth living. Transhumanists, whose most urgent goal is to use science to overcome biological death, emphatically disagree.

For decades, the question of temporal scarcity has been debated and analyzed in essays and books. But an original idea transhumanists are putting forth is reinvigorating the debate. It doesn’t discount temporal scarcity in biological humans; it discounts it in what humans will likely become in the future—cyborgs and digitized consciousnesses.

Elon Musk Expresses Interest in Planet Four Light-Years Away

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, space travel

He hasn’t even made it to Mars yet, and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s wandering eye is already on a new planet — this one completely outside our star system.

Over the weekend, Musk seemed to ideate on the prospect of visiting the relatively nearby Promixa Centauri B, an exoplanet that sits a little over four light-years away in Alpha Centauri, the star system that James Cameron’s “Avatar” franchise is based on. First discovered back in 2016, Proxima B is believed to be particularly viable as a potentially life-supporting world, and it looks like Musk is paying attention.

“Practically next door,” the Twitter owner tweeted on Sunday, in response to a tweet featuring a Space Academy blog post about the tantalizing planet.

Tesla’s Giga Shanghai is a trump card for the EV revolution of Tesla.
Recently, Elon Musk revealed how fast Giga Shanghai could produce a car in just 38 seconds.
So how did that change everything?
The first video includes a ten-minute and five-minute segment of the Model Y leaving the workshop.
And during the 10-minute segment, 16 new cars were completed, which would be 38 seconds per car on average.
7 cars were completed in the following 5-minute segment, translating to an average of 44 seconds per car.

Meet the newest employee at Elon Musk’s SpaceX. He’s 14

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, engineering, internet

The latest recruit at SpaceX is a software engineer who passed its “technically challenging” and “fun” interview process.

What’s different about Kairan Quazi is that he’s just 14 years old.

He said in a LinkedIn post on Thursday: “I will be joining the coolest company on the planet as a software engineer on the Starlink engineering team. One of the rare companies that did not use my age as an arbitrary and outdated proxy for maturity and ability.”

Tesla 4680 battery cell production ramp kicks into high gear in CA

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, sustainability, transportation

Tesla is preparing to ramp up 4,680 battery cell production in Fremont, California. The company recently signed a lease for a new manufacturing facility for essential battery technology that will likely be used for 4,680 cell production.

Sources familiar with the matter told the Business Times that Tesla signed a lease with the industrial real estate investment trust Prologis on a 210,000 sq.ft advanced manufacturing facility. One source shared that the facility would support Tesla’s 4,680 battery cell production.

In Q3 2022, Tesla tripled its 4,680 cell production compared to the previous quarter. Elon Musk and the rest of the Tesla board discussed ramping 4,680 productions at the third quarter earnings call last year.
