uh... spent some time to read Elon Musk on wiki,
what a poor man,
he is not a genius, undergradute phys degree won't change 2 much of this world.
so far he is doing low level engineering works,
spaceX basically copy/paste NASA's IPs, he is better supported than North Korea which helped in his success, but nothing worth boasting.
Tesla... tech level should not be 2 far above a undergraduate/high school project...
a boy fulled with hollywood fantasies and wish to change the world in a cheap way, that just won't work...
I bet Yi Cui's battery firm if succeed will have far deeper impact...
Link to NASA press conference, opening with SpaceX founder Elon Musk saying the flight of its Dragon spacecraft to the International Space is so far "spot on":
So far, so good, Frank. NASA reports that solar arrays and nav sensors on Dragon "trunk" deployed properly, and the spacecraft's GPS was nominal.
An interesting side note: SpaceX reportedly confirmed during a post-launch press conference that the Falcon 9 second stage carried to orbit the remains of 300 human beings, including Gordon Cooper, one of the original Mercury astronauts. Technically, therefore, they WERE carrying an astronaut!
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
