The largest projects Elon Musk
• The largest projects Elon Musk
Recently successfully launched heavy rocket Falcon 9, which in the future will be used for missions to the Moon and Mars. This event once again proved that a businessman and inventor Elon Musk designs become a reality despite the criticism. Today we look at the top 5 projects charismatic genius bordering on the verge of fantasy.
According to statements SpaceX mask - his main creation and the company for which he has high hopes. Today SpaceX - the largest private developer of launch vehicles and commercial space travel operator. At a conference Elon Musk briefly and clearly described the main objective of the company - to make mankind "interplanetary views." SpaceX was founded in 2002 and has gone a long and thorny path before you get the current altitude. From the very first day of the Musk is CEO and chief engineer of the company.
The first launch of a rocket Falcon 1 accident turned around in 2006. Despite this failure, SpaceX won the NASA competition and won the grand of $ 396 million. Dollars to build a launch vehicle Falcon-9 and reusable unmanned vehicle Dragon spacecraft. Both developments turned into a success and made SpaceX one of the world leaders in the space segment. Plans mask in the next four years to send cargo spacecraft to Mars, and in 2024 and the first expedition to the Red Planet.
Elon Musk is a big fan of the Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla. That is why he named his company to produce electric vehicles and electricity storage solutions in his honor. Tesla - is the most well-known and public project Mask, who for 15 years since its inception has managed to become a world leader in the production of electric vehicles. The company, which has released three hundred thousand vehicles, could reach a turnover of 29 billion dollars. And overtake most of the world's automakers.
Musk believes that electric future is not far off. According to him, in the near future most of the cars will drive on batteries, the factory will start working on solar energy, and humanity will be able to finally get off the "oil needle". When in 2006 Tesla presented its first electric car, many debatable reacted to this product. Today, most large companies is betting it is the park of electric vehicles.
In 2013, Ilons Musk suggested the idea of creating a fifth mode of transport par with trains, cars, airplanes and ships. According to him, it has to be somewhere between the Concorde supersonic aircraft, and aerohokeem railgun. The project was named Hyperloop, which means - "giperpetlya". Hyperloop is a concept supersonic train which is movable on a magnetic rod at specially equipped vacuum tunnels. According to statements mask a new form of transport will be twice as fast and the plane is four times faster than the modern high-speed train. Travel time from Los Angeles to San Francisco (about 550 km.) is not more than half an hour. This form of transport will not be prone to accidents, weather conditions and traffic jams. Trains will walk at regular intervals in the subway. Unfortunately, the project has not yet been realized to the end. To date, the polygons are constructed in the cities of Hawthorne, and Las Vegas. Maximum reached speed of the train is limited to 457 km / h, which is in any case much more than the current surface transportation.
Elon Musk is a permanent member of the club alarmists. The businessman has repeatedly claimed that he could not get rid of disturbing thoughts that artificial intelligence has a great danger for humanity in the future. Nevertheless, in 2017 it became known that the mask is at least strange development. A year earlier, he had secretly created a project called Neuralink, which plans to engage in the creation of implantable brain-computer interface.
The purpose of the project to develop an environment that will directly connect the human body and the computer. The original mission of the company was to create a device for the treatment of brain diseases:.. Epilepsy, depression, etc. However, later Neuralink project switched to a much larger problem. Musk wants to develop technology that will enable people to mentally manage computers that is to create a kind of telepathic system. The project is conducted in great secrecy, so information about it very little.
5. The Boring Company
Mask impressed by the prospect of not only space, but also travel underground. To this end, in 2016 the project The Boring Company was founded. The purpose of the project - creation of a system of underground tunnels to move them electric cars at high speed (over 240 km / h). The inventor started the company as a sign of combat congestion in large metropolitan areas.
On the idea of a huge lift to be lowered cars in underground tunnels where they can move at high speed without traffic lights and traffic jams. December 19, 2018 The Boring Company officially opened the first tunnel near Los Angeles, in which Musk personally rode on the electric car Tesla. Later, he said that an underground line can move any cars, and even public transport, we need only to equip the vehicle with special side wheels.
