Like many, aspiring supervillain Elon Musk is gazing at the solar eclipse today. But regular sunglasses and a Tesla sunroof are not adequate eye protection for staring at the Sun. Is Elon Musk using special eclipse sunglasses? Is he blind now?
We’ve reached out to Musk to find out and will update this post if he responds.
Update 2:26pm: Elon Musk (who has presumably retained his sight) tells Gizmodo that he was wearing normal sunglasses, but was watching the eclipse “through the Model S glass roof, which has many layers of photon protection.” Sounds sketchy as hell but okay!
