Note From The Curator
Here are the top 3 stories in this issue of Elon Musk News:
- Tesla's entire future depends on the Gigafactory
- SpaceX Might Launch Humans To Space Next Year
- Hyperloop One Is Building A New Factory in Nevada
This week Tesla hosted a press event for journalists to see Gigafactory 1 (Elon Musk intends to build a Gigafactory on every continent where there is sufficient demand). There is a great article by The Verge which discusses where the factory is at now, and why its success is critical to Tesla's future. For me, the Gigafactory 1 unveiling can be summed up by one short statement made by Elon - “I find this to be quite romantic... It feels like the Wild West.”
There is also some exciting news on the SpaceX front. NASA’s director of commercial spaceflight development said that SpaceX should be ready for a human test flight in August 2017. SpaceX also successfully test fired the Falcon 9 rocket that took the JCSAT communications satellite to orbit back in May.
Thanks for reading, and enjoy issue 30!
