    China Releases Footage of First Far Side Moon Landing

    I view it the same way i view the moon landing in 1969, if China was bullshitting it there is no way in hell the US wouldn't call bullshit. Just like there is no way the CCCP wouldn't call bullshit if we faked the moon landing. You don't get it 19.5 billion doesn't cover R&D for missions let...

    Tesla Manufactured 80,000 Vehicles in Q3

    Profitability is what matters, the truck/suv market is big in the US and China it's not favoriable with world sales which is tesla's aim with the model 3. The model 3 is suppose to be their money maker to bring volume sales and expand their market reach, a truck won't do that unless they can...

    Tesla Manufactured 80,000 Vehicles in Q3

    I mean that's very doable, most manufacturer's plants output around 25k cars a month, the old nummi plant that they retrofitted from used to output nearly 35k a month at it's peak.

    Tesla Is About to Feel the Heat as Electric Car Manufacturers Roll Out New Cars

    Tesla could easily sell the model 3 for 35k and make good profit if they knew a thing or two about mass manufacturing and supply chain logistics. Tesla vehicles have plenty of profit margin built-in from parts and technology due to their massive integration and simplification of electronics...

    US NTSB Shakes Finger at Tesla, but Why?

    You say that but if you actually look at the 101 to 85 interchange's history there are quite a few crashes with those gore points, a handful every year, in part because of inadequate markings. After all the reason why the barrier was gone was because there was a crash into the same gore point 2...

    US NTSB Shakes Finger at Tesla, but Why?

    That actually isn't the same. That gore point is missing a lane marking but still has chevrons which the cars should pick up sooner. The crash in mountain view's Gore point has no stripes or chevrons just lane markers, so in terms of confusing a robot it's more understandable. It's also the site...

    Then make sure you include UPS in that. So that leaves you with Fedex. Which would be more union except fedex is chartered as a air freight service while ups was chartered as a ground freight service meaning it was easier for UPS workers to unionize which they did.
