Elon Musk—CEO of Tesla, SpaceX, and The Boring Company—has been pitching his new tunnel-boring capabilities to curious elected officials as well as the director of CERN (the organization that owns and operates the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland).

Ars takes a first tour of the length of The Boring Company’s test tunnel

Just a month after Musk opened up his first, rather rugged test tunnel under the SpaceX campus in Hawthorne, California, the CEO has been on Twitter floating prices and talking projects.

Musk replied, "About $15M/km for a two-way high-speed transit, so probably around $750M plus maybe $50M/station."

In his original tweet, Buckingham tagged Mike Cannon-Brookes, an Australian billionaire who co-founded Atlassian.

Cannon-Brookes was involved with a bet in 2017 that led to Tesla deploying the world's largest battery in South Australia.

SpaceX is set to launch the Block 5 version of its flagship rocket, the Falcon 9, at 4:12 pm Eastern on Thursday, an event that signals that reusable rockets are here to stay—or, rather, to boldly go.

This upgraded version of the Falcon is expected to launch, land, and re-launch multiple times with little down time in between flights.

Today's mission marks the first time SpaceX has returned to Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center following the epic maiden flight of its massive rocket, the Falcon Heavy.

That highly anticipated launch captivated crowds across the world on February 6, as it ascended through the atmosphere, carrying Elon Musk’s cherry red Tesla roadster (and a dummy driver, Starman) into space.

Then the first stage booster will return to Earth, where it’ll try to stick a landing on the company's drone ship, Of Course I Still Love You, waiting in the Atlantic Ocean.

(The nearly 8,000-pound Bangabandhu-1 satellite will bring commercial communications capabilities to a rural region of Asia for up to 15 years after being placed into orbit.

LONDON—Elon Musk s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. has lost a spacecraft launch order from a major satellite operator to a European rival after the failure of one of its rockets and delays in resuming flights.

Inmarsat PLC Thursday said it would move the launch of one of its satellites to the Arianespace Ariane 5 rocket.

The London-based satellite-services company said it took the action after delays in the launch schedule for the Falcon 9 rocket, made by SpaceX, as the rocket company is called.

SpaceX lost one of its Falcon 9 rockets in an explosion during a routine refueling exercise in September at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

It destroyed an Israeli satellite Facebook Inc. planned to use to provide internet access to people in sub-Saharan Africa.

Investigators believe a refueling procedure led to the failure.

Cryptocurrency scammers are pretending to be Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Twitter, and some of their tweets are being promoted onto timelines through Twitter's ad service.

Generally, the scammers will hack a verified account, change the display name to "Elon Musk," copy his profile photo, and then tweet about a fake cryptocurrency giveaway.

Twitter has attempted to curb these scams by blocking users from changing their display names to "Elon Musk," but the scammers have found their way around Twitter's efforts and continue to successfully promote their tweets.

If you've used Twitter at all recently, you've probably seen what looks like Elon Musk peddling a cryptocurrency "giveaway" on your timeline.

A closer look at the user's Twitter handle will reveal the account doesn't belong to Elon Musk, it's an imposter looking to capitalize on the crypto craze.

The scam itself is pretty simple: the scammer hacks a Twitter-verified account, changes the name to "Elon Musk" or something similar, changes the profile picture to Musk's current photo, and then begins tweeting as if they were the Tesla CEO.
