It was Disappointing to see the SpaceX CRS-7 mission fail.
I was returning from Melbourne and stopped in Warrnambool to watch the launch. Such a disappointment. Their first failure after 18 successful launches. I wonder if this will delay their attempted first re-entry propulsive landing of the first stage back at Vandenburg, California. Now if that was successful, it would be monumental. :)
That flight is due on the 9th August 04:30 UTC.
My Model S delivery has been delayed from End of September to the End of October.
On a positive note, maybe I will save a few more $$ and there is the possibility that new hardware is added to the car prior to it being built.
Returning from Kaniva on Monday I hit a 'roo with my Holden Volt. Unfortunate for the kangaroo sadly, but lucky for me not too much damage. Broken front indicator and a scrape to the front passenger door. No dents that I could tell.
If that had been the Tesla and a bigger animal, I imagine the aluminium panel repairs would be quite significant.
I'm eagerly awaiting the next launch of SpaceX Falcon 9 due on the 28th June (USA time).
However of greater interest to me will be the following launch on the 9th August, in which it is planned the first stage will return to the launch pad after delivering its satellite. Now that would be revolutionary for the delivery to the ISS and future space travel!
I have begun with a dream, really a day dream, and I wanted to show it.
Importantly I wanted to show my excitement for the future, the future of Electric cars.
I feel Australia is dragging its feet in this area and it has taken an Entrepreneur of the highest calibre to kick-start this country in a meaningful way. I have the utmost admiration for Elon Musk and his endeavours.
The Supercharged highway he is building is taking us to the next level whether we like it or not.
And I love it!
