Daily Digit is the story behind the numbers that make our world work. Today we’re looking into the not-so-distant future, just six years from now, when SpaceX CEO Elon Musk says the company will send its first manned missions to Mars. SpaceX has been sending unmanned rockets into orbit since 2012, but the private aerospace company has its eyes set on sending the first humans to the Red Planet in 2024. To get there, Musk proposes a new, larger, and completely reusable style of spacecraft he calls the Big F***ing Rocket, or BFR for short. Theoretically, the BFR could have a major effect on international travel in addition to interplanetary exploration: Musk says the technology could reduce the London to Tokyo travel time to a mere 34 minutes.
The self-driving vehicle had just set of on a series of half-mile loops when a delivery truck emerged from an alley and clipped the bumper.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has praised a man for risking his own life – and his Tesla – to save an unconscious driver. Tesla driver Manfred Kick, 41, reportedly noticed a man in a Volkswagen driving erratically on the Autobahn near Munich, Germany. When he realised the driver was unconscious, Mr Kick reportedly pulled in front of the Volkswagen and slowly braked until he could bring both cars to a halt.
On Dec. 14, 2016, some of the top U.S. tech leaders met with President-elect Donald Trump, and he promised to have an ongoing relationship with the group.

The self-driving car revolution could be arriving a bit sooner than people anticipated - as Tesla’s Elon Musk has revealed that all new models will be capable of ‘full’ self-driving. Joshua Brown, 40, died in his Tesla Model S after colliding with a lorry - while using the car’s ‘autopilot mode’. Tesla’s autopilot mode allows the car to change lanes and react to traffic without input from the driver.
Ever since the first ‘connected’ electric cars took to the road, there have been fears that hackers could take over the vehicles. A Shanghai security firm, Keen Security Lab, has released a video showing that those fears are - to some extent - justified. The researchers were able to ‘remote control’ a Tesla Model S via the internet - from up to 12 miles away..
The supersonic rail system, dubbed Hyperloop, is the brainchild of U.S. billionaire Elon Musk and is currently in the early stages of development. Hyperloop will use magnetic pods to send passengers in a capsule through a network of airless tubes carried by stilts. If it came to the UK, the system would make it possible to travel from Manchester to London in just 18 minutes.
American authorities are to investigate supercar maker Tesla over what is believed to be the first fatal crash caused by a self-driving car. Joshua Bown, 40, died in his Tesla Model S after colliding with a lorry - while using the car’s ‘autopilot mode’. Tesla’s autopilot mode allows the car to change lanes and react to traffic without input from the driver.
By Liana B. Baker RANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. (Reuters) - Artificial intelligence and machine learning will create computers so sophisticated and godlike that humans will need to implant "neural laces" in their brains to keep up, Tesla Motors and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk told a crowd of tech leaders this week. While Musk's description of an injectable human-computer link may sound like science fiction, top tech executives repeatedly said that artificial intelligence (AI) was on the verge of changing everyday life, during discussion at a conference by online publication Recode this week. It is no secret that tech companies are diving into AI analytics research, an industry that will grow to $70 billion by 2020 from just $8.2 billion in 2013, according to a Bank of America report citing IDC research.
Pre-orders for Tesla’s most affordable electric car yet have reached a staggering 276,000 just three days after it was launched. Unveiled on 31 March, the Model 3 is designed to travel at least 215 miles (346km) on a single charge and comes with a $35,000 (£24,500) price tag making it considerably cheaper than other Tesla car models. The electric car maker opened up pre-orders last week, at a cost of £1,000 per customer so the company has already made a considerable amount of cash before buyers have even had a test drive.
Electric car maker Tesla has unveiled its cheapest vehicle yet, with an ‘affordable’ price tag of $35,000 (£24,500). Speaking at the launch of the new prototype, CEO and SpaceX boss Elon Musk said that 115,000 have so far pre-ordered the five-seater electric car, which is due to go into production in late 2017. Unveiling the car to the waiting crowd, Musk said: ”We think you are going to be blown away”.
Tesla and SpaceX boss Elon Musk has predicted that autonomous cars will be able to drive across the U.S., with no driver on board, within the next two years. A new software update technically allows drivers to summon their driverless car from its parking space and have it come and meet them, within a three-mile radius. The update for the Tesla Model S and Model X also enables parking in a spaces perpendicular to the road, while the cars were previously only capable parallel parking or finding their way into a garage.
