@NASASpaceflight Needs to be level & match booster fittings. We will find out on ~Tuesday.
@arctechinc We are doing releases every 2 weeks on Friday at midnight California time
@truth_tesla @ConsumerReports Reason we hustled so much to get Autopilot V1 out was that someone driving non-Autopilot Tesla fell asleep, crashed & killed cyclist (Tesla driver was uninjured).
Driver nonetheless sued us saying new car smell made him fall asleep (sigh). Judge didn’t agree.
Starbase is moving at Warp 9
@DavidNagySFgang @rocketry_catboy Indeed. Grid fin designs clearly work, but do they maximize payload? Good chance that they do not.
Something with much more drag to reduce terminal velocity & so reduce landing propellant might have better performance. Not sure.
Potential future optimization.
@WholeMarsBlog The Tesla AI predictions are swiftly becoming superhuman – its guesses for what it can’t see well feel like ESP. It has a vastly larger training set than any human & thinks only about driving.
@WholeMarsBlog There is always a lot of cleanup after a major code release. Beta 9.2 will be tight.
Still some fundamentals to solve for Beta 10, but now that we’re pure vision, progress is much faster. Radar was holding us back.
@alandail @nextspaceflight Will post once we have a decent simulation. Our first design will probably be far from the bullseye.
@nextspaceflight Stage Zero, which is everything needed to launch & catch the rocket, is at least as hard as the booster or ship

@SawyerMerritt Tesla policy is never to give in to false claims, even if we would lose, and never to fight true claims, even if we would win.
