No joke: Elon Musk explains Tesla Roadster rocket thrusters

In the case of the March crash that killed 38-year-old Walter Huang, the NTSB determined that "for the last 6 seconds prior to the crash, the vehicle did not detect the driver's hands on the steering wheel".

The automaker's CEO tweeted over the weekend that the all-electric $200,000 Roadster will be offered with a SpaceX option package that includes approximately "10 small rocket thrusters" installed around the vehicle that will improve its performance and "maybe will even allow a Tesla to fly".

"To date, Autopilot resources have rightly focused entirely on safety".

And that's all well and good, but still ... our world just became 20,000 flamethrowers richer, and it's only a matter of time. If no wood, just drop your flamethrower in fire place! "Have some respect for the Firefighters and make an Ice Blaster".

Over the weekend, CEO Elon Musk tweeted that in August, his company plans to release "Version 9" of the software that controls its cars.

It would require any company making electric cars in california to be certified as having a "fair and responsible workplace" in order for those cars to get a special "clean vehicle rebate project" tax credit.

The billionaire tweeted that a major update to the software coming in August, dubbed Tesla Version 9, will fix a number of issues with the Autopilot system. "With V9, we will begin to enable full self-driving features", Musk tweeted on Sunday, referring to the latest version of the Autpilot programme, in response to a Twitter user. The driver did not have his hands on the wheel. It will also increase the vehicle's range on a full charge to 620 miles.

"In a word, Tesla's relationship with its workers has been awful", said Field. 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".

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

Tesla has denied the allegations and described them as an effort to make Chief Executive Elon Musk look bad.

Larry Kudlow Has Suffered a Heart Attack
He previously served in the Reagan administration and emerged as a leading evangelist for tax cuts and smaller government. Kudlow joined Trump last week in Canada for the G-7 meeting of world leaders.

Two other vehicles crashed into the Tesla following the accident, which the NTSB said sparked a fire after the crashes breached the Telsa's 400-volt lithium-ion high-voltage battery. But that doesn't mean that it will, just that it could - there are still regulations and limitations on self-driving vehicles on public roads.
