    [โ€“] 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and ๐Ÿ”‹ Battery Day Megathread FlyingSpaghettiMon 3 points ago in teslamotors

    I have a feeling these are not peopleโ€™s cars. These were just made a couple days ago and set up for the event.

    [โ€“] r/SpaceX Starlink-11 Launch Discussion & Updates Thread FlyingSpaghettiMon 1 points ago in spacex

    Iโ€™m sure theyโ€™ll do this as soon as itโ€™s possible. Starlink still doesnโ€™t reach lower latitudes well. And still needs a ground station in view.

    [โ€“] Speedtest: 21 ms 46 Mbps down 10 Mbps up FlyingSpaghettiMon 1 points ago in Starlink

    Starlink sats still need a nearby ground station to function. And I'm fairly certain there aren't many of those currently. There's definitely one in LA though.

    [โ€“] A little post to remind everyone: not only is Autopilot getting better, itโ€™s much safer than a human alone. FlyingSpaghettiMon 43 points ago in TeslaLounge

    As much as I love autopilot, I think this statistic might be a bit misleading. Most autopilot miles happen on the highway, while most accidents happen in low-speed situations (parking, driveways, residential areas, etc).

    Would probably be more insightful if theyโ€™d compare autopilot accident occurrence vs average highway accident occurrence.

    Thanks! These guys look so cool, like I want to be their friend.

    [โ€“] SpaceX falcon 9 leaving Earth's atmosphere and created a "Twilight Phenomenon" FlyingSpaghettiMon 15 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Agreed. The explanation they give is sub-par but I guess it sounds smart and impressive.

    This phenomenon is caused by the exhaust plume being high enough that it is still being hit by sunlight while the ground is already in darkness.

    This only happens when launches are 1-2 hours before sunrise or after sunset.

    High Voltage DC is pretty good too. Especially for ultra long distances that don't have intermediary connection points.

    [โ€“] Tesla releases new solar panel, slashes prices FlyingSpaghettiMon 2 points ago in solar

    I bought a model 3 in early 2018. Have a hard time thinking of ever buying a car from anyone else. Itโ€™s not perfect. The company moves fast, things break and change all the time. But they do everything for the right reasons.

    [โ€“] Mayโ€™s electric bill FlyingSpaghettiMon 3 points ago in solar

    This is awesome. So it looks like you overproduced 757kWh this month. But in MA I can imagine wintertime production drops to what, 100, 150kWh? And energy consumption is probably way higher in wintertime too?

    I'm in FL what you're showing here is quite different to what we're used to seeing haha.

    I understand. Looks like my question is getting downvoted but it was worth asking :)

    [โ€“] r/SpaceX Starlink 7 Official Launch Discussion & Updates Thread FlyingSpaghettiMon 1 points ago in spacex

    Why continue to label these as n-1 (starlink-7) just because the first launch was a test launch and not operational satellites? It looks like Spacex and the rest of the industry all refer to this launch as starlink-8.

    Cellular data plans are way more expensive in the US. So you probably still pay less for the phone and service over the course of 2-3 years than we do here.

    Woah the difference is pretty staggering! How much more work is easing vs linear flow?
