Note From The Curator
Here are the top 3 stories in this issue of Elon Musk News:
- This Hyperloop Lawsuit Is Insane
- Next SpaceX launch will bring critical docking adapter to International Space Station
- Leave Tesla Alone
The biggest story in this issue came totally out of left field. Hyperloop One Co-founder and CTO Brogan BamBrogan has resigned and filed a lawsuit against the company. The WIRED article about it is filled with scandalous details, including a hangman’s noose left on BamBrogan's desk and a fiancée who was paid $40,000 a month for public relations work. It is the type of story that would be perfect for HBO's Silicon Valley. However, the saddest part of this scandal is the negative effect it will have on Hyperloop One's ability to build the fifth mode of transport. I hope a silver lining emerges, and I will keep you posted in future issues on new developments!
