LOS ANGELES — And now the floodgates are open.
A Tesla Model S P100D begs the question: What’s more Ludicrous than Ludicrous?
Right now, the biggest battery you can get on a Tesla Model S or Model X is a 90-kilowatt-hour pack. Capable of traveling 294 miles on a single charge (in 90D form) or rushing 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds (P90D), it’s an impressive offering. However, Tesla could soon make it seem antiquated.
Tomorrow, Europe’s Philae lander will come to the official end of its long goodbye from the surface of its comet speeding toward the distant reaches of our solar system.
The Rosetta orbiter — circling Comet 67P — will stop listening out for Philae on the comet’s surface on Wednesday, when mission controllers turn off Rosetta’s instrument designed to receive a signal if Philae attempts to phone home.
