Cool footage of the Tesla P85D doing a 0 to 60 mph test drive and then switching to autopilot. Cool to see the news crew get sucked back in to their seats. The line to test drive this model is going to be ridiculous, The P85D gets close to matching the McLaren F1 which can do 0 to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. Musk discusses other features of the Model D in the video.
During the same interview he also talks about the legal liabilities of auto pilot and gives another reminder that Tesla’s stock is not a focus point for him.
There was no heroic adventure, only bloodshed. Columbus Day should not be a celebration.

Hey guys, thanks for reading a story on tumblr!
I feel often like tumblr isn’t a place for medium or long form text, but I was pleasantly surprised by how many people were into the short (short) story I posted the other day.
What a great article. I thought the SR-71 held the record. I didn’t realize it wa sthe X-15A-2.
Maker-Based Education is an educational-technology startup that believes online learning resources for coding are impersonal, complex, and unnecessarily long-winded. We are making it ridiculously easy to learn a new coding language through project-based video instruction.
In all of our courses students learn-by-doing from the start and reach competency within 20 hours. We do this through project-based learning and our students finish each course with a 3 project portfolio for that coding language to show to potential employers and schools.
Looking for something to read tonight? Try “The Color of Paradox,” a story about time travel by A.M. Dellamonica.
This illustration by Michael Marsicano is part of a recent aeon article about Elon Musk. The article is a great geek-out about space with Musk and, the author, Ross Andersen. Andersen weaves us in and out of conversation with Musk along with SpaceX history, looking at what it would take to colonize Mars, and exploring possible histories of our solar system. The article awesomely wraps up with Musk easily calculating light travel math contemplating how feasible star travel would be.
An awesome long read if you enjoy Musk talking in-depth about space travel and colonization.
My favorite highlight from the article:
Musk has a more sinister theory. ‘The absence of any noticeable life may be an argument in favour of us being in a simulation,’ he told me. ‘Like when you’re playing an adventure game, and you can see the stars in the background, but you can’t ever get there. If it’s not a simulation, then maybe we’re in a lab and there’s some advanced alien civilisation that’s just watching how we develop, out of curiosity, like mould in a petri dish.’ Musk flipped through a few more possibilities, each packing a deeper existential chill than the last, until finally he came around to the import of it all. ‘If you look at our current technology level, something strange has to happen to civilisations, and I mean strange in a bad way,’ he said. ‘And it could be that there are a whole lot of dead, one-planet civilisations.’
Thanks to Jordan Bishop for the submission!
