US Military threatens operations between SpaceX and NASA ​

According to a piece of new information, the collaboration between SpaceX and NASA might be at risk because the American military forces are monitoring Elon Musk’s space agency’s operations because their spacecraft carry aboard satellites.

NASA is apparently keeping a close watch on SpaceX’s Crew Dragon expedition which suffered an impediment just last week as the capsule blew up while examined in the static fire test. Besides this, the NASA signed with Elon Musk’s space agency a $2.6 billion contract to transport astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS), and also, the U.S. Air Force voiced its concern over the fact that SpaceX will be having on board national security property, namely satellites. Due to this, the U.S. military could, in fact, stop the launch if SpaceX will still encounter problems during its test flights, the report said.

Brigadier General Douglas Schiess, the Air Force commander managing the unit reported in a recent interview that the Air Force designed personnel that knows the preparation procedures of the satellite and rocket to observe the process. They have the power to interfere with SpaceX-NASA operations if they think that the ‘correct’ process is not being ensued, Schiess said.

Not only SpaceX but also Boeing has signed a contract with NASA and are now supposed to support NASA with its space observations and missions through the agency’s commercial space project. However, SpaceX is now the forerunner as it successfully fired an uncrewed Crew Dragon spacecraft at the beginning of the year and anchored it at the International Space Station without any problem.

SpaceX’s Crew Dragon is intended to be the space agency’s first capsule to carry on board human occupants. Elon Musk’s space agency was scheduled to carry on the second stage of the demos which includes American astronauts, but because of the accident occurred at its hangar, the mission was a bit delayed. Crew Dragon spacecraft was due to transport NASA astronauts to the International Space Station this year.

​The accident which occurred on April 20, took place while numerous engine tests were performed on the Dragon capsule at Cape Canaveral in Florida. The explosion happened during the last phases of testing, and because of it, the second demo was postponed, and thus the American Air force could also push back the launch if they think the expedition is not prepared enough.

Elon Musk posts ‘irresponsible’ tweet about couple who filmed themselves bonking in a self-driving …

TESLA boss Elon Musk has responded to a dangerous porn clip in which a couple risk their lives by having sex in one of his firm’s self-driving cars.

TESLA boss Elon Musk has responded to a dangerous porn clip in which a couple risk their lives by having sex in one of his firm’s self-driving cars.

The smutty video was posted to a major adult site last week and shows porn star Taylor Jackson, 19, and her boyfriend getting it on in the front seat of their Tesla as it steers itself at high speed down a US highway.

The stunt flagrantly ignored Tesla’s strict rules for its “Autopilot mode”, which allows its electric cars to steer and brake for you.

The firm urges drivers to keep both hands on the wheel at all times in case things go wrong – though CEO Musk, 47, seems to have his own ideas.

In response to Taylor’s filthy clip, the eccentric billionaire tweeted: “Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined.”

He added: “Shoulda seen it coming …”

The raunchy video has garnered 2million views since it was uploaded to adult site PornHub last week.

In the clip, the Taylor and her boyfriend, who live in Los Angeles, California, get hot and heavy for ten minutes while their £75,000 Tesla Model X careens past people’s homes on autopilot mode.

Musk’s failure to condemn the rompers for their high-speed antics was branded “irresponsible” by some fans.

One tweeter wrote: “This is dangerous … All kidding aside, be clear about the dangers.”

Another reminded the billionaire, whose tweets have landed him in hot water in the past, of deaths caused by inattention while using Autopilot.

“There was a story where a driver using ‘auto pilot’ decided to look down to text,” they tweeted.

“Guess what happened next? Yup – she KILLED someone.”

Musk’s comments follow a tricky 12 months for the business mogul in which his Twitter antics have landed him with dozens of controversies and a $20million lawsuit from the SEC.

The South African is currently facing a defamation case after he famously called a hero British diver who helped rescue children from a flooded cave in Thailand a “pedo guy” on Twitter.

Tesla has not yet released an official statement on Taylor’s raunchy video.

Taylor explained why she recorded the clip in an interview last week.

“Earlier this year I was on a road trip with my boyfriend and he asked me to have sex with him while driving,” she told The Register.

“We both thought it was hot and joked about doing it again and putting it on PornHub. We thought someone had to have done it before so we looked it up, but we couldn’t find a single video.

“A few weeks later I signed up for a PornHub account and this video was one of the first few videos I made.”

However, the amateur star warned the risky romp almost cost her and her boyfriend their lives.

“I have experienced Autopilot a lot so I did feel safe,” she said.

“Most of the highway we were on was straight. We did have one scare where I hit the steering wheel and knocked it out of Autopilot mode.

“I wouldn’t recommend it since it is dangerous.”

 The clip even made it to PornHub's official Instagram account

Driverless cars are being retrained to be more like humans after becoming ‘overly cautious’.

A terrifying video released last month showed a Model S erupting in a huge ball of fire in an underground car park in China.

Elon Musk took a shot at fellow billionaire Jeff Bezosspace colony dreams late Thursday with an altered photo.

The SpaceX founder tweeted a screen grab of a New York Times article about the Blue Moon lunar lander with the word “Moon” crudely wiped off the photo and replaced with “Balls.”

Oh stop teasing, Jeff 😉 pic.twitter.com/wuWPENcSE1

“Oh stop teasing, Jeff,” Musk wrote, adding a winky emoji.

Amazon founder Bezos unveiled the lander and his dream of colonizing the moon at a Washington DC event on Thursday. Bezos may be the world’s richest person, but Musk’s company is further along in developing larger rockets for orbital space travel. Musk last year outlined his plans to colonize Mars.

In April, Musk shared a rendering of SpaceX’s sleek Starship sitting on the moon’s surface, but the company hasn’t announced plans to bring people to our lunar neighbor — it’s aiming to send artists on a trip around the moon in 2023. Bezos wants to bring people to the surface by 2024.

On Thursday, Musk told a Twitter follower that we can expect the next Starship update around June 20.

Blue Origin didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

A Los Angeles adult film performer and her boyfriend found a perhaps predictable way to use their time while riding in a Tesla on Autopilot mode last week — and their online post drew the attention of Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

The couple was on a road trip when they talked about having sex while using the car’s semi-autonomous feature, Taylor Jackson told Business Insider. After the tryst, Jackson posted a video of her and her boyfriend performing various sex acts inside the moving electric vehicle and uploaded it to adult website PornHub.

“Holy s—, I made @Tesla the #1 search on Pornhub,” Jackson wrote on Twitter. She also tagged Musk on the post.

The website tweeted back, saying: “Reporting you to Elon for not having two hands on the wheel with the autopilot enabled. #phworthy.”

Musk made light of the incident in a series of tweets Thursday.

“Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined,” he posted.

Minutes later, he addressed the video again.

“Shoulda seen it coming …,” he tweeted.

Jackson said she bumped the steering wheel during the escapade and knocked it out of Autopilot.

“It was mainly a straight road, but it had a lot of traffic,” she told the news website. “We had a lot of cars driving by us.”

While the Autopilot system can steer a Tesla within a highway lane without driver input for extended periods, the feature still requires “active driver supervision,” according to Tesla.

Jackson said the feedback from the video has been mostly positive.

“Looking at it now, I feel we could’ve made it better,” she said. “Maybe we will make another one.”

Elon Musk has responded to the porn film a couple uploaded to Pornhub last week, which shows them having sex in a moving Tesla vehicle on Autopilot.

While not referencing the video directly, Musk posted on Twitter, “Turns out there’s more ways to use Autopilot than we imagined,” adding “shoulda seen it coming …”

A follower replied to the tweets, saying “Tesla is S3XY after all,” to which Musk said: “Basically begging for it.”

When another asked whether there were still plans to drive from New York City to LA on full Autopilot, Musk joked how that journey would have “a different age rating.”

“We could have gamed an LA/NY Autopilot journey last year, but when we do it this year, everyone with Tesla Full Self-Driving will be able to do it too,” he said, more seriously.

Last week, Taylor Jackson, an adult entertainer, and her boyfriend filmed themselves having sex in a moving Tesla and uploaded it to the adult website PornHub.

Tesla’s Autopilot isn’t a fully driverless system yet, and the company’s website states that the driver should still have their hands on the wheel and be “prepared to take over at any time.”

Jackson told INSIDER she wasn’t afraid, however, although she did bump the steering wheel and knock the car out of Autopilot at one point in the video.

“It was mainly a straight road, but it had a lot of traffic,” she said. “We had a lot of cars driving by us.”

Tesla hasn’t commented publicly on the video yet, but it’s unlikely to condone such behavior, or make light of it like it’s CEO Musk. Tesla is involved in legal proceedings relating to the safety of the Autopilot feature.

An Apple engineer called Walter Huang died in March 2018 when his Tesla Model X crashed on a California highway. His family is suing Tesla, because the car was in Autopilot when it crashed. The suit alleges Autopilot is “defective in its design.”

In a blog published by Tesla shortly afterwards, the company stated Huang “received several visual and one audible hands-on warning earlier in the drive,” to remind him to put his hands back on the wheel.

Musk recently said in an interview that Tesla’ Autopilot could be safe for people to drive hands-free by the end of this year.

INSIDER has contacted Tesla for comment.
