Nexter.org keeps in touch with the latest hot news and announcements from the most famous tech inventor and entrepreneur  – Elon Musk. Here’s what you might have missed.

Elon Musk’s LA tunnel

The ’s first tunnel being dug under Los Angeles is almost complete, Elon Musk said in a tweet Thursday. Musk also published a time-lapse video on Instagram showing a round-trip journey through the tunnel. The entrepreneur also plans to offer free subterranean rides to the public in a few months.

The tunnel will be a key component of its Loop transportation system, which will transport people in their own cars or passenger “pods” for bicyclists and pedestrians. The high-speed system will allow people to bypass LA traffic and get around the city faster.

Tesla’s improving?

After Telsa’s major problems and delays, it seems that the company wants to show it’s ok, after all.

The EV brand has delivered its first Model 3 outside of the US, handing the keys (or rather, keycard) to a driver from Kingston, Ontario, Canada. There had been hints this was coming in March, when Tesla sent purchase invitations to pre-order customers, but it wasn’t exactly clear when the Model 3 would arrive in the country.

Anyway, according to Business Insider markets chart, Tesla’s value goes up if compare with a previous major crisis.

Falcon 9 launch

The new SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket took flight from Kennedy Space Center on Friday, May 11 successfully delivering Bangladesh’s first geostationary satellite to orbit.

“This will be the last major version of Falcon 9 before BFR,” Musk said while referencing the Big Falcon Rocket, or BFR, which is under development and will be constructed at the Port of Los Angeles before transport to the Space Coast. “Expect this to be a mainstay of SpaceX’s business.”

Big plans

Elon Musk dreams big so there’s no wonder he said that in next five years, his company will launch about 300 missions into space. The number of flights, if realised, will easily make SpaceX the most successful space agency in the world.

Responding to a tweet which discussed how the reusable rocket technology would bring down the cost of space flights, Musk said, “SpaceX will probably build 30 to 40 rocket cores for ~300 missions over 5 years. Then BFR takes over & Falcon retires.”

“Goal of BFR is to enable anyone to move to the moon, Mars and eventually outer planets.”
