    Elon Musk's father said his son was too busy to react to his announcement that he fathered a child with own step-daughter, who he now has another baby with.  Errol Musk, 76, said that when he told the Tesla CEO about his first child with step-daughter Jana Bezuidenhout, 34, back in 2018, Musk did not find the news worthy of a strong reaction.  Errol told The Sun that his son simply said, 'Okay, I got it, but l'm real busy right now. I'll speak to you in due course.' It was the same year Musk described as 'excruciating,' as he was under intense scrutiny after he announced plans to take Tesla private at $420 a share.  It was previously reported that Musk was angered by the news and shared the opinions of his three sisters, who Errol said were creeped out by the relationship he had with their half-sister.  'They still don’t like it. They still feel a bit creepy about it, because she's their sister. Their half-sister,' Errol told the Sun.  Errol told The Sun that his son reacted...

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally responded to to Elon Musk after he joked in a tweet that she was 'hitting on him' when she was actually slamming him for 'an explosion of hate crimes' following his purchase of Twitter.   'Like I said, ego problems,' the congresswoman tweeted Saturday morning about 20 hours after Musk's initial tweets. She used a shrugging emoji and quote tweeted the exchange between herself and social media platform's new owner.    On Friday Musk accused AOC flirting with him after she raged that his purchase of Twitter had stoked hate crimes.  'Stop hitting on me, I’m really shy,' he wrote, adding a blushing emoji to go along with it. Musk was replying directly to a tweet sent by the Democrat Representative earlier on Friday, which suggested he'd only bought the platform at the behest of Fox News host Tucker Carlson and his PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel.   Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 32, responded to Elon Musk nearly a day after he accused the congresswoman of hitting on him on Twitter. She replied: 'Like I said, ego problems' 'Like I said, ego...
    SpaceX Starship rocket exploded the moment it hit the ground following its first high-altitude flight - leaving nothing behind but debris and cloud of smoke. CEO Elon Musk had said it was unlikely that Starship serial number 8 (SN8) would land safely - and the billionaire was right. The massive rocket took off from the firm's Boca Chica testing facility at 5:45pm, igniting its powerful Raptor engines and soaring into the sky.  The flight lasted for around six minutes before the engines shutdown and SN8 began its journey back to the launch pad.   The world sat on the edge of their seats as the rocket neared the ground wondering Musk's prediction was correct. Then moment it touched down, the entire Starship blew up in flames, leaving nothing behind but a damaged piece of the nose cone.

    As Tesla made its first public pitch to bring its Cybertruck factory to Austin, Texas on Tuesday, the company faced concerns from citizens about its treatment of workers, the proposal’s impact on the local housing crisis, the need to give the automaker tax breaks, and most of all, CEO Elon Musk. About 45 residents of Austin and the surrounding area spoke about the factory deal on Tuesday at a virtual public meeting held by the Travis County Commissioners Court, the policy-making and administrative arm of the local government. Many objected to Musk’s behavior during the coronavirus pandemic, including how he reopened Tesla’s California vehicle factory in violation of a local health order, sued the county where the factory is located, and spread misinformation about the virus. Texas is currently experiencing a “massive outbreak” of COVID-19 cases, according to Gov. Greg Abbott. Tesla says it would create 5,000 jobs, with entry-level positions starting at $35,000 a year Tesla has spent the last few months soliciting offers for its next US factory from “nearly every state and governor East of the...
    New York (CNN Business)Tesla says its Model S Long Range Plus is the first electric vehicle to achieve over 400 miles of EPA-rated range.The company said in a news release Monday that the vehicle has "an official EPA-rated range of 402 miles, representing a nearly 20% increase in range when compared to a 2019 Model S 100D with the same battery pack design."The announcement follows previous claims from Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk that the vehicle had reached a capacity of 400 miles. In April during Tesla's first quarter corporate earnings call, Musk said that the Environmental Protection Agency had made a mistake when it originally tested the Model S Long Range Plus premium sedan.He said the EPA left the car door open and the keys in the car overnight — putting the vehicle in waiting-for-driver mode. Musk said the action lost 2% of the vehicle's range.Musk said at the time that Tesla has its eyes set on improving the vehicles' ranges over time as well as other aspects, such as handling and acceleration.
    Washington, DC (CNN)Three years ago, Elon Musk pitched a grandiose vision for the future of intracity vehicle travel: layers of tunnels that would efficiently speed vehicles through cities. Drivers would maneuver their own Teslas to street-level elevators, which would lower them to be whisked away on autonomous electric sleds at speeds up to 120 mph. Pedestrians and cyclists would ride in an autonomous electric vehicle that resembled a glass-plated train car.Musk's career is rich in accomplishments that have earned him a place in history. He made electric cars popular at Tesla and pioneered reusable rockets at SpaceX, which recently became the first private company to send astronauts to space. But he's also gained a reputation for making bold statements, and not always living up to them.He intended to send space tourists around the moon in 2018, and to demonstrate a cross-country drive in an autonomous Tesla by the end of 2017. And over the years, Musk has set his sights on the transformation of both intra- and intercity transportation infrastructure, to little apparent success thus far.He created the Boring Company...
    Last months, Tesla CEO Elon Musk openly defied stay-at-home orders in Alameda County in order to reopen his car factory in Fremont, California. The oppositional billionaire, who had been skeptical of public health recommendations — and who previously dismissed the pandemic as “dumb” —first filed a lawsuit for injunctive relief; then threatened to take his factory to another state; then called Alameda County’s interim health officer “ignorant.” Musk even said he was willing to be arrested for the noble “cause” of restarting production. And what did that get him? According to a new report by the Washington Post, a coronavirus outbreak in the factory. Post correspondent Faiz Siddiqui reports that two workers “who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of fear of retaliation” said that supervisors recently held meetings with their teams to discuss that the company reported “several cases of the coronavirus.” Employees who were sick with the coronavirus were told to stay home, and have yet to return to work. Three workers who were quarantined because of potential exposure have already returned to work. The main Tesla manufacturing plant, which employs nearly 10,000 people, started production earlier than its...
    Amazon is selling former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson’s booklet on coronavirus after initially claiming it didn’t meet the online retailer’s guidelines – as help rolled in from the likes of journalist Glenn Greenwald and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, who considered the move blatant censorship. “Unreported Truths about COVID-19 and Lockdowns: Part 1,” which included an introduction and a section on death counts and estimates, was expected to hit Jeff Bezos’ Amazon on Thursday but Berenson said he woke up to an alarming email. “They said, ‘we’re rejecting this,’” Berenson told Fox News. “It didn’t say, ‘you can appeal,’ it didn’t say, ‘here is who you should email if you have a question.’ It just said, ‘This is rejected.’” Amazon is selling Alex Berenson’s booklet on coronavirus after initially claiming it didn’t meet online retailer’s guidelines.

    New York (CNN Business)In a 2004 interview with CNN, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk discussed his ambitions to partner with NASA and to one day send people into space. "I think what we're doing is critical to the future of NASA," Musk said at the time.This weekend, nearly 16 years later, Musk's SpaceX is poised to do just that. On Saturday afternoon, SpaceX and NASA will again aim to make history by launching two astronauts into Earth's orbit. The launch will mark several milestones: It is set to be the first time in nearly a decade that astronauts have been sent to space from US soil, the first crewed mission for SpaceX and the first time a privately developed spacecraft launched humans into Earth's orbit. In honor of the 40th anniversary of CNN's founding, the newsroom is digging into its vault and releasing archived footage of old interviews, which offers a chance to look back at how the people, companies and stories CNN covers have evolved.
