Elon Musk, the eccentric, car-loving billionaire whose childhood was famously chronicled in the 2001 Steven Spielberg film A.I., has apparently been waiting out the relationship between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard for at least three years.
SpaceX’s eighth launch this year proved successful Sunday morning, when a Falcon 9 rocket landed on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship after launching a Japanese communications satellite into orbit.
SpaceX is set to launch another Falcon 9 rocket on its way to deliver a commercial communications satellite into orbit and, as is tradition, you can watch it live. You just have to be up super early in order to see it.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk hosted the grand opening for Tesla’s Nevada Gigafactory on Friday night, but only after receiving an offstage pep talk reminding him to “smile a lot,” and that “everything is awesome.”
Mobileye, a supplier of vision-based sensor chips for self-driving cars, has cited concern over the reputation of autonomous technologies following the ending of its supply deal with Tesla, likely due to the fatal crash involving a Model S in May.
Elon Musk has released his second master plan for his electric car company Tesla, and he has some pretty ambitious goals.
Having successfully launched and landed a few single rockets, SpaceX is now planning a simultaneous triple rocket landing. This is going to look cool.
Hyperloop One, the much-ballyhooed company formed with the goal of bringing the futuristic Hyperloop to fruition, has been hit by a whopper of a lawsuit from none other than co-founder and chief technology officer Brogan BamBrogan.
The buzz hasn’t entirely died from that fatal Tesla crash in May, or the one that happened this week, but Elon Musk is already looking ahead.
Elon Musk is on the brink of acquiring the the next critical component in a solar-electric transportation future. Tesla Motors just made a $2.8 billion stock-to-stock offer to buy SolarCity, one of the largest solar energy companies in the country. It also happens to be a company founded by Musk’s cousins and one…
After a string of successful ocean landings, SpaceX’s latest Falcon 9 rocket crashed hard right into its drone ship.
The best “clue” for what Elon Musk was up to at his Pentagon meeting came from, as per usual, the man’s Twitter. In response to a CNN article musing over his mysterious visit, the SpaceX founder tweeted that it had something to do with a flying metal suit. Clearly, he’s not mad at Tony Stark comparisons.
Elon Musk, the billionaire businessman who wants to literally die on Mars after he puts an electric car in every American’s garage, just had a meeting at the Pentagon with the US Secretary of Defense. But neither Musk nor Secretary Ash Carter will disclose what they talked about.
Tweets are mysterious things. They’re sometimes witty, usually banal, and often garbage. But if you’re Elon Musk, your tweets can have a very real impact on how companies are valued.

Elon Musk is ready to prove that landing the rocket on a barge in April wasn’t just a fluke. Yesterday, the SpaceX co-founder tweeted that he hoped to relaunch its four landed rockets this fall for the first time.
Elon Musk may think we’re all living in a video game, but the man still has suggestions for which video game we should play while we’re all stuck in this simulation. And of course the game involves fighting sentient AI.
We usually see rocket launches and landings from above. But there’s something about seeing the whole thing happen from the ground-up that’s just so much better.
Last night, Elon Musk suggested that Earth is simply a simulation from an alien race’s video game. Why would Musk say this? Because he is one of those aliens.
First Elon Musk wanted to nuke Mars, and now he thinks he knows how democracy there should work. Even though we’re not really that close to colonizing the Red Planet, the SpaceX founder has some rather utopian ideas for how a government should work on Mars.
Given how much time Elon Musk spends trying to save the world, it’s almost surprising that he thinks we’re all just living in someone’s video game anyway. Or, it would be if he wasn’t well-known for his dramatic predictions and if he hadn’t also added that there’s a chance we’ll become pets to superintelligent AI and…
