How Elon Musk’s SpaceX is changing American space flight – PBS NewsHour

It has been nearly a decade since an American space crew last lifted off from U.S. soil in a spacecraft built here. That’s expected to change Wednesday afternoon with the relaunch of manned space flight. But the occasion will be very different from past launches, as this time, a private company is leading the way as a NASA partner. Miles O’Brien reports on the potentially “revolutionary” moment.

EPA Denies Elon Musk’s Claims About Faulty Range Test Of Tesla Model S – InsideEVs

So, is the 391-mile range rating correct or should it be 400 miles? The EPA is willing to discuss any technical issues with Tesla.

Elon Musk said during Tesla‘s earnings call that the Model S Long Range Plus – currently rated by EPA at 391 miles (513 km) of range – actually might be able to go 400 miles (644 km), as the test was kind of faulty.

The main issue is that the EPA allegedly left the car door open and the keys inside, which resulted in 2% battery drain overnight (during the test procedure, we guess).

“…the real Model S range is 400 miles, but when we did the last EPA test, unfortunately, [EPA] left the car door open and the keys in the car, so the car – and it did this overnight.

And so the car actually went into waiting for driver mode and lost 2% of its range. And as a result, it had a 391 test. As soon as the EPA reopens for testing, we will redo the test, and we’re actually confident that we will achieve a 400-mile-or-greater range with the Model S. But to be clear, the Model S, for the past two months — the true range of the Model S for the past two months has been 400 miles.”

Elon Musk intends to repeat the test, but such a serious accusation forced the EPA to take a position. The EPA’s spokesperson denied the allegations in a statement to The Verge:

“We can confirm that EPA tested the vehicle properly, the door was closed, and we are happy to discuss any technical issues with Tesla, as we do routinely with all automakers,”

Well, it would be great if the EPA and Tesla would discuss the topic and repeat the test if that’s required.
