Earlier this month, we watched a SpaceX rocket—fully loaded with its satellite—explode suddenly and inexplicably. At the time, the cause remained a mystery, but now SpaceX’s engineers have traced the flaw to its source.
A team of researchers were able to wirelessly attack a Tesla Model S and gain control over some of its internal electronic components including the car’s brakes. And they pulled it off from 12 miles away.
Two weeks ago, a SpaceX rocket inexplicably burst into flames, taking its satellite payload up in smoke. Now the space company has given a date for when we can expect to see its rockets back in the air.
When Elon Musk announced that Tesla’s semi-autonomous driving system, known as Autopilot, was getting a major update, he also made a point to suggest that he believed that the new version 8.0 of its system could have prevented the first fatal crash of a semi-autonomous car.

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.
