Then SpaceX & # 39; s billionaire CEO Elon Musk does not have its own space program, it leads Tesla & # 39; s revolution in electric cars & # 39; s. But that does not mean that he does not free time to cut loose. That was the case on Tuesday (January 7) when Musk showed some dance moves during a Tesla transfer event.
Musk (who is also the CEO of Tesla) playfully opened his jacket to a jumping audience at the Tesla Shanghai factory in China, held the lapel and bobbed while the audience cheered, as captured in a video by CCTV (state media)and who has set Space.com to music).
"At Tesla Giga Shanghai NSFW !!" Musk wrote about his performance on Twitter.
Dancing, Musk pulled the jacket over his shoulders and threw it to the left, showing off a black T-shirt and white long sleeves underneath. He tried a few different movements in front of the crowd, dancing back and forth and sideways on stage before stopping the routine a few seconds later.
Although it was the dance moves that drew the most attention on social media, Musk had a more serious goal at the event – to mark the first Tesla gigafabric (or electric vehicle assembly plant) outside the United States.
"It will also be our most advanced giga factory", Musk said in a recent video. "We are going to make it extremely ecologically sustainable, so that this becomes a showpiece for the world."
With Musk also very active in space, we are simply disappointed that he did not do the moonwalk.
This year, SpaceX is expected to launch its first Dragon commercial spacecraft crew with people on board, after years of development and delays. The company also carries out missions with his Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets, including launches of its Starlink broadband satellite series every few weeks.
SpaceX is also developing a huge new rocket named Starship for possible deep space missions for large loads and, ultimately, astronauts. The company is expected to complete a new prototype of the reusable spacecraft for flight tests this year.
Sometimes Musk & # 39; s two companies come together in a bit of high-tech cross-promotion.
In February 2018, SpaceX launched a cherry-red Tesla Roadster into the deep space (in fact, it was Musk & # 39; s personal car) as the charge for the first Falcon Heavy test flight. At the wheel was a "Starman" fashion model in a SpaceX space suit.
In November 2019, Musk Tesla & # 39; s revealed Cyber Truck, an electric truck that looks like something that is directly science fiction. During that unveiling, Musk announced that the Cybertruck is made of the same type of stainless steel as SpaceX & Starship.
