It's weird to me that people don't openly talk about how Elon musk is a fraud when he's done stuff like the child submarines, the plan for fixing traffic by turning the ground under cities into swiss cheese, and the cars that have the hardware for autonomous driving "already installed." They're not even good lies.
As others have pointed out, more Elon scams:
The Covid ventilation machines that don't work and actually spray particles around, the expensive and inefficient pneumatic tube system, the rockets that continually explode on the launchpads, the plan to clutter up space with an astonishing amount of junk satellites. It just goes on and on.
In case the space junk thing was news to you, it is happening as we speak. SpaceX has a satellite project called Starlink, and they are launching scores of small satellites every couple of weeks. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.vox.com/platform/amp/science-and-health/2020/1/7/21003272/space-x-starlink-astronomy-light-pollution
@InternetEh I have very mixed feelings about Starlink and many of Musk's endeavors. I also recognize that many ISPs have an extremely bad relationship with rural communities and that rural communities are ill served by the status-quo. Starlink might light a fire under companies that have had captive consumers up until now. The digital divide in this country is very real. I also think there are a lot of liberal people who might consider moving to more rural areas if there was better internet.
