Elon Musk Drivers Must Refer To Him As “Great Leader” | Digital Trends Spanish

The tunnels that The Boring Company - Elon Musk's company - opened some time ago under the Las Vegas Convention Center, they did it with a curiosity. According to Tech Crunch, the drivers who transport passengers in these tunnels have to respond in very specific ways to the users and especially when talking about Elon Musk. This information comes from the instructions that The Boring Company gives to its employees and in which the orders are very clear: the drivers are not there to entertain the passengers, but to take them safely to their destination. But the conversation is going to be unavoidable, just as questions about Elon Musk and the drivers must be answered very succinctly, as well as eloquent. For example, if a passenger asks specifically about Elon Musk's character, the ans...

The Battle Between Musk and Bezos Over NASA Contracts Continues | Digital Trends Spanish

In April, NASA awarded Elon Musk a $ 2.9 billion contract to SapaceX to build a lunar lander. This does not seem to convince Jeff Bezos, who has returned to the fray with a new offer to the space agency. In a letter addressed to NASA administrator, Bill Nelson, the tycoon assured that his company Blue Origin is willing to give up up to 2 billion dollars in payments in the current and the next two federal fiscal years in exchange for a contract of landing at a fixed price. According to Bezos, his company is also willing to finance its own exploratory mission to Earth orbit. "This offer is not a postponement, but rather a resounding and permanent waiver of those payments," Bezos explained in the letter. "This offer provides time for the government's appropriation actions to catch up." Th...
