SpaceX makes historic launch and puts record number of satellites into orbit with one Falcon 9 launch vehicle

Published

The launch of SpaceX Transporter-1, planned a couple of days ago, had to be postponed due to unfavorable weather conditions, but in the end it was successful, and Elon Musk’s company launched almost 150 spacecraft into orbit.

This is the first launch under the SmallSat Rideshare program, announced by SpaceX back in 2019, when the company decided to adapt the “ride-sharing” model, well-established in taxi service, to launch satellites. This program allows other companies and organizations to launch their cargo on the Falcon 9 at a more affordable price.

A total of 10 spacecraft were satellites of the Starlink SpaceX project, and the remaining 113 were owned by both government and commercial organizations, including the German Aerospace Center, the US Department of Defense and the space services company Nanorocks.

SpaceX is very proud to have set the record for the most spacecraft ever delivered to orbit in a single launch.

As for the Falcon 9’s main booster, it returned safely to Earth and landed on a drone called Of Course I Still Love You.

Volkswagen in talks with Foxconn to build cars for the Scout brand

Back in May, Volkswagen said it planned to reintroduce the Scout brand, creating a separate independent company to produce trucks and SUVs. The launch of sales in the US is planned for 2026.

In turn, Foxconn expanded the production of electric vehicles for automotive brands, hoping to occupy 5% of this market by 2025.

For now, both companies have declined to comment on the topic. However, according to the source, Volkswagen is also in talks with Magna Steyr, a subsidiary of Magna International, which plans to build a plant in the US. Perhaps this is where the new Scout cars will be produced.

Previously, Volkswagen showed the concept of a futuristic unmanned electric vehicle for traveling.

He continues to lie after 15 years Tesla founder criticized

According to Business Insider, Elon Musk said that Martin Eberhard, one of the founders of Tesla, did not risk his money when creating the company’s first car.

I was the head of the product department and led the design of the original Roadster. Eberhard was rich and could have risked his money, but he didn’t want to.

Elon Musk

Musk has previously been accused of simply “crowding out” Tesla founders Eberhard and Mark Tarpenning and “spent the next ten years telling everyone he founded Tesla.”

“He continues to lie after 15 years,” Tesla founder criticized Elon Musk.  The billionaire replied

At the same time, Elon Musk himself said that he was directly involved in the creation of the Roadster, and also registered the Tesla Motors trademark and tesla.com address.

This is not true. The fact that he continues to lie about me 15 years after I left Tesla fully shows his nature.

Martin Eberhard

Eberhard and Tarpenning founded the company in 2003. Musk, who had money when he sold PayPal, funded the company with $6.5 million and joined Tesla’s board of directors as chairman. Prior to this, Eberhard had introduced Tesla to him via email as “a company with very high potential for growth.”

Tesla introduced its first car in 2006, at the same time Eberhard was called “Mr. Tesla.” Musk was hurt by the lack of media coverage of his involvement in the development of Tesla. Then Eberhard for the first time seriously argued with Musk, but not the last time.

“He continues to lie after 15 years,” Tesla founder criticized Elon Musk.  The billionaire replied

Musk, who officially became the company’s CEO in 2008, has repeatedly spoken disparagingly of Eberhard. Musk said last year that Eberhard was “by far the worst person Musk has ever worked with in his entire career,” adding that the co-founder was “close to killing Tesla.”

Growth slowed after a record production of over 887,000 vehicles in September. That being said, Toyota continues to face supply chain disruptions as China imposes lockdowns due to COVID-19.

As we have already reported, lockdowns and other restrictions to curb the spread of COVID-19, implemented in many parts of China, have affected Honda, Yamaha and other Japanese manufacturers.
