They murdered 3 Tesla employees

Plane crash kills Tesla employees

It's a tragic day for Silicon Valley electric-car startup Tesla Motors: A small plane owned by a Tesla employee crashed this morning after takeoff from Palo Alto Airport, killing the pilot and two passengers.

"Three Tesla employees were on board a plane that crashed in East Palo Alto early this morning," CEO Elon Musk said in a statement. "We are withholding their identities as we work with the relevant authorities to notify the families. Our thoughts and prayers are with them."

I didn't realize that Elon

I didn't realize that Elon Musk was behind Tesla Motors as well. He's also behind SpaceX and founded PayPal.


They? Murdered?

I am confused as to why somebody would believe that a plane crash of this sort would be that difficult to believe. Small plane crashes happen. I seem to remember a couple of people at a supplier being killed in a plane crash a few years ago. My company has policies against more than two people of some high level being in the same airplane or car, and I did not get the impression these were the heads of the company.

I did some work on an electric car in college, so I have an interest, but truthfully, a sexy high performance electric at that price point does not seem all that impressive. The Tesla product seems more like a media darling being pushed on us by regulation than any real market driven solution.

I would think this would be the last group you would worry about being killed by some corporatist state if that is the implication you are making. Also, it would not be unreasonable to guess that the state subsidies pushing this sort of thing lead to malinvestment in this kind of industry. And some of that malinvestment has a tendency to be spent by the industry's employees. It is possible that exactly the opposite of what you are implying happened. Perhaps big spending on this industry by government agencies and easy money allowed somebody who would not normally have been able to buy a private plane that crashed here. No way to know, but it seems as plausible.

Yeah I saw the story earlier today and thought the same thing

Knew it was a matter of time before I saw it pop up here.
It's hard to trust an accident to be an accident these days.


bump for others to see.
