Tesla imploding. Interesting. Let me look into that.

Not "trying", The Model 3 is already out and all of them sold out before it was even released to the public. Don't think the Bolt did that... And although the Bolt does achieve more mileage on one single charge vs tesla, the tesla maxes out at 130mph opposed to the Bolt at 93mph. Anyone (most everyone) with the need for speed would likely choose the Tesla over the Bolt with that spec alone. Probably the most important, though, the crash test- that floored most American drivers,
Ah, Elon does it again!
Look up the Bolt crash test and let me know which one you'd rather occupy...
I regret to inform you but GM, Ford, Nissan etc., none of them hold a candle to Tesla and no, they aren't going anywhere anytime soon, if at all.
I'm interested, which "signs" are you referring to...?

True, but since Mars does
have water and soil-like nutrients on the land, it wouldn't be difficult to plant micro organisms that feed off it. Extremely salty water, sure, but it is water nonetheless. It is not a far fetched idea.. and it will happen.
"The concept starts small. Microorganisms that munch on Mars's natural resources could not only transform the red planet's soil, but could pump out gasses to bolster the Mars's embarrassingly thin atmosphere to boot. This is not simply theoretical. Such a process has already been proven already in Earth's history, We owe all our planet's atmospheric oxygen to microbe photosynthesis."
-Gary King, Microbiologist, Louisiana State University
The Tesla factories are already automated without much human involvement at all, so are the rocket launches, etc. The future of this space tourism is not in employing humans, but making money off them.
Agree. It's going to take some time to engineer the planet to an 'earth like' state & until they do, it'll be a trip and back. If that.

Lemur PERHAPS!... I'm about as hard as my eyes are wide when I look up at those stars.. And if your jollies don't get off when you think of space and God and all the limitless opportunities that are being presented... well, you're just tacky
