"Tesla won't sell out to us for a price we can afford"
Mass adoption of electric cars is inevitable as soon as electric cars consistently outperform gasoline at a similar price point, which in turn is inevitable.

Most probably multiple cameras, prepositioned and synchronized.
...there are plenty of things that burn without oxygen simply because there are lots of other oxidizers...
I do not think that the word "oxidizer" means what you think it does.
...A plane just isn't going to survive those forces yet.
William Gibson suggested mounting it in a blimp. Who cares about the blimp?
Producing them cheaply enough to rival chips made of processed sand is another matter entirely....
