The significance of this is Elon Musk, who is the self-driving Uber of dot.com billionaires and is the hero of our times.
Well, I knew Steve Jobs well enough, and have met a few civilian astronauts and a bunch of other rich people. None of the others seem to have done so much for the long-term future of the human race as Musk has in leading the path to more affordable spaceflight.
Well, it beats making them into the world's most complicated airplanes as with the space shuttle. SpaceX has proven that they can do vertical landings of the first stage intact onto both land and a seagoing barge; after a trip out of the atmosphere and to about 1/5 of orbital velocity but not into orbit. They plan to do a parachute-less vertical landing of the Dragon capsule after a heat-shield re-entry. That turns out to be far less expensive and complicated than a space plane. It does turn out we need a lifting body for much larger vehicles. It still doesn't have to be a plane, though.
We don't need wings.
Personally, I think the app should be fully disabled while moving fast passenger or not.
Totally agree. And I would personally define "fast" as something like 10 km/h since you really shouldn't be playing this game while running or riding a bike either.
The trick is to find the ~5% who are doing something different, so they'll get different results, and help them.
Or in this case, we're talking about the people who will continue doing OK like previously because they were doing find until some kind of accident happened. But even otherwise if you could know (which I know isn't easy) that giving someone $1000 every year would prevent that person from being homeless, it's still a worthwhile investment even if you don't care about people's well-being.
