The last vehicle to debut from Tesla Motors was the Model X SUV. The Model X featured all-wheel drive and the option of a 60 or 85 kWh battery. Its performance version accelerates from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4.4 seconds, which made it one of the faster vehicles on the market. The Functional Falcon Wing rear doors fold up and out of the way to allow easy access to third row seats. In addition, the 17”, touchscreen in-dash display includes driver controls, vehicle apps, web connectivity and onboard charging.

Most recently, Haute 100 lister Elon Musk’s SpaceX attempted to launch yet another rocket. However, the company failed to successfully land a Falcon 9 rocket on a drone ship Friday night. This was SpaceX’s fourth attempt to land the Falcon 9 post-launch on a floating drone ship in the ocean.

The Falcon 9’s target, however, was achieved. Musk Tweeted, “Target altitude of 40,600 km achieved. Thanks @SES_Satellites for riding on Falcon 9! Looking forward to future missions.”

Musk also admitted via Twitter that he did not expect this launch to work. He Tweeted, “Rocket landed hard on the droneship. Didn’t expect this one to work (v hot reentry), but next flight has a good chance.”

The rocket launched on Friday, March 4th from Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 6.35pm ET.
