  • Here’s Why The Model Y Is The Only Tesla I Don’t Mind Waiting For
    by Chris Boylan on April 20, 2019 at 10:03 pm

    I know that’s a strange title for an article. But let me explain. I took my family for a test drive in a Tesla Model S P85+ back in 2013. I was hooked. So were the kids. (The wife took a little more convincing.) But a sedan, even a roomy sedan with the ability to seat seven (sort of), wasn’t an ideal choice for us at the time. Then I saw the video for the upcoming Model X. OMG, those FALCON-WING DOORS! Seating for seven. Loads of space. I NEEDED THAT! […]

    on April 19, 2019 at 6:50 am

    For the past few months, the clean room floor in High Bay 1 at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, has been covered in parts, components and test equipment for the Mars 2020 spacecraft, scheduled for launch toward the Red Planet in July of 2020.
