Tesla owners should have YouTube and Netflix in the car by the end of August

Watching TV while you drive is a terrible idea, but can your fully stopped car double as a self-contained entertainment center? That’s what Elon Musk and Tesla are betting on.

Netflix streaming and YouTube streaming are both coming to Tesla vehicles “soon,” according to a Saturday tweet from Musk. The feature will only work while the car is stopped, though Musk noted in a follow-up tweet that the safeguard won’t be in place forever.

Once regulators approve full self-driving, he said, video while moving will be switched on.

The revelation of Netflix and YouTube support for Tesla isn’t surprising. Musk talked about Tesla’s gaming and entertainment plans in June during the annual video games industry trade show, E3. The real news is that it’s coming soon.

Musk didn’t share a specific date, but he did verify that support should be rolled in as part of the upcoming V10 update. In addition to games like Cuphead and multimedia portals like YouTube and Netflix, the update will also bring improvements to Autopilot and Smart Summon.

Musk noted in a subsequent tweet that the wide release for V10 should be in full swing by the end of August, almost a full year after the last major update released in Sept. 2018.

He also mentioned that “some” of the new “infotainment” features added in the forthcoming update may be tied to Tesla’s “premium connectivity” internet package. For now, the $100/year option includes access to satellite view, in-car streaming music, and a web browser. It’s not clear which other new features would be folded in as part of the premium package.

Area 51: DON’T try to storm secret base, author warns – ‘This is no joke!’

“And in that deep curiosity is an amazingly huge story – a story, perhaps, whose time has finally come. 

“The story is bigger than the fact that a million people want to ‘storm Area 51’. Its a far more important story – and one that, if true, the government would certainly not want anyone to find out about. 

Mr Lewis, who says he has researched the subject for a decade, believes IS the site of technology far beyond our understanding.

However, rather than what he refers to as “little green men”, he claims the “UFOs” are actually man-made flying machines built by an advanced ancient civilisation which left Earth 20,000 years ago for some unspecified reason.

He added: “That’s why the ‘approach at your own peril’ signs are posted all around Area 51.

“So, no, I wouldn’t advise anyone to storm

“The government is serious about keeping everyone out.

“And, frankly, if I was a government guy tasked with maintaining an orderly progression of society, I would probably do whatever it takes to make sure no one finds the truth that they don’t even know they are searching for.

“That’s how important this knowledge is.”

The Facebook event states: “We will all meet up at the Area 51 Alien Center tourist attraction and coordinate our entry. 

“If we naruto run, we can move faster than their bullets. Lets see them aliens.”

Naruto is a reference to a popular Japanese anime character.

UFO enthusiasts have also registered their interest via the #area51raid hashtag.

Signs surrounding the site of the base, located 80 miles north-north-west of Nevada, warn against trespassing, and stress the use of “” is authorised.

In response to the surging number of people signing up for the Facebook event, US Air Force spokeswoman Laura McAndrews said last week: “Area 51 is an open training range for the US Air Force, and we would discourage anyone from trying to come into the area where we train American armed forces.

“The US Air Force always stands ready to protect America and its assets.”

Area 51: Is this the extraordinary truth of secret ‘UFO’ base?

The base was in the news recently after a Facebook event entitled , They Can’t Stop All of Us, and fixed for 3am on September 20, attracted vast numbers of people who have pledged to take part, with the current total standing at 1.8 million. KM Lewis, who has written a novel about entitled The Thirteenth Guardian, fully acknowledges the was started as a “joke” – but believes the truth really is “in there”. He told Express.co.uk: “We have been searching for the truth… but the wrong truth, in my opinion.

It’s a crazy idea, on the face of it – but my research suggests that it is not as far fetched an idea as one might think

KM Lewis

“According to some researchers, , an avid student of the UFO phenomenon, once said that UFOs are man-made flying machines built by a very advanced ancient civilisation that left Earth 20,000 years ago for some unknown reason.

“It’s a crazy idea, on the face of it – but my research suggests that it is not as far fetched an idea as one might think.”

Mr Lewis, who said he had been researching the subject for ten years, added: “I believe something may very well have crashed in Roswell/Area 51… but I don’t believe the occupants were little green men.

“They looked exactly like us; but they came from the stars.

“They looked like us because they are our far, distant forebears.

“The question is: What happened to them? Why did they leave Earth? That’s what I believe the secrecy is all about.

“The ‘extraterrestrial technology’ in turns out to be pretty terrestrial.

“What if all those futuristic sci-fi movies (flying cars, intergalactic travel at warp speed, teleportation etc) is not the future, but the past?”

“As I did my research, I was so shaken to my core, I thought the only way to tell the story wasthrough a novel – The Thirteenth Guardian.

“Turns out this whole ‘Storm ’ is not going to uncover little green men after all.

“If you listen to what Albert Einstein said, and when you read The Thirteenth Guardian , it becomes very clear that our history is much more interesting than we have been taught.

“The tech to travel from planet to planet in very little time is not new; it is forgotten. We have done it before – but a very long time ago.

“Our forebears, people just like you and I, were much more intelligent than we acknowledge.

“The idea that some of our forebears left Earth for some unknown reason according to Einstein (the reason why they left is the premise of The Thirteenth Guardian), would explain why our planet is so special to them. It’s home.”

Mr Lewis’ online biography, posted on the website for his book, www.thirteenthguardian.com, describes him as having lived in multiple countries around the world and speaking several languages.

It also states that he “holds a graduate degree from one of the Universities featured in his book”, and that when he is not writing, he “doubles as a management consultant, with clients in just about every continent”.

Conspiracy theorists have claimed the Government is concealing extra-terrestrial technology including alien spaceships inside the base.

UFO sighting: NASA satellite snaps alien spacecraft ‘bigger than Earth’ near the Sun

The NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) mission is the US space agency’s method for learning about the Sun’s structure and solar atmosphere. Since it began orbiting our star more than two decades ago, the NASA space telescope has made innumerable breakthroughs, from understanding the Sun’s violent solar storms to monitoring its powerful magnetic fields. However, UFO hunter Scott Waring believes NASA’s SOHO has now made its most amazing discovery yet – spotting an huge alien spacecraft flying close to the star. Waring took to his etdatabase.com UFO blog to speculate about the dubious find.

He wrote: “At first I thought the anomaly was just some sort of magma or solar material ejected from the Sun.

“But it doesn’t look like it – the object’s shape just looks too perfect for that.

“There seem to be right angles to it, resembling a modern-day arrow head.

“There are just too many right angles present for it to be a naturally-occurring object.”

Waring proceeds to zoom out of the NASA image, taken on July 24, 2019, to get a better perspective of the solar anomaly.

This was taken from SOHO’s EIT 195 camera, which presents the Sun with a greenish filter.

Knowing the Sun’s radius to be 695,510 km, the alien life conspiracy theorist estimates the UFO to be at least 10 times the size of Earth.

And Waring thinks such constructing such enormous spaceship would be easily feasible for technologically advanced alien cultures.

He wrote: “Imagine you are an alien, and you want to build an object bigger than planet Earth.

“Well, it is not too hard if the planet you evolved from is 13.5 billion years old.

“That puts us around 10 billion years behind them then.

“Imagine the technological advances alien species could make in ten billion years.

“They would be godlike. Here is such a species orbiting our Sun.

“All the aliens need to do is order their AI robots to build these huge UFOs for them.

“These robots will harvest the necessary materials from other planets or mine asteroids to create this spaceship.”

And Waring, who regularly accuses NASA of covering-up evidence of alien life, claims the space agency may have done so again with this image.

He wrote: “I tried to find the photo again and discovered NASA’s Helioviewer.org won’t allow me to see it.

“Also on Helioviewer there appears to be a cube over the sun, which could be a possible attempt to cover-up this UFO.”

Scores of UFO enthusiasts took to Youtube to comment on Waring’s bizarre theory.

Liz M commented: “Scott you run circles around nasa lameo’s!! U Rock!”

And Simone PleTon speculated: “Are these giant spaceships crewed by giants? Or are they floating worlds that hold world sized populations that sail the cosmos?”

Area 51 claim: UFO victims ‘looked exactly like us’, says author who backs Einstein theory

Seth Rogen calls out Twitter on Lil Nas X’s big day as CEO

Forget the Old Town Road, Lil Nas X spent Friday taking his horse to Twitter HQ for a nice change of scenery.

The 20-year-old rapper announced his planned visit to the New York office on Twitter, of course, and also let everyone know that he planned to steal Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s job while he was there.

“Everyone must nae nae or be at risk for account suspension!” the “Old Town Road” the singer joked in his “CEO for the day” tweet.

While Lil Nas X is beloved by many and still holding down his spot at the top of the Billboard charts, Dorsey and Twitter have come under fire over the years for verification of white supremacists, initial reluctance to ban conspiracy theorists Alex Jones, slow response to take action against “dehumanizing language” aimed at religious groups, refusal to block Donald Trump for tweets that should violate the platform’s terms of use, and more.

Actor Seth Rogen, who’s spoken out against white supremacists on Twitter before, was one of several people to reply to Lil Nas X’s tweet by calling out problematic aspects of the platform.

“Maybe do something about all the white supremacists he verified and therefor amplifies?” Rogen tweeted at the rapper. Rogen has since deleted his tweet.

Though Lil Nas X’s visit did get some pushback from Rogen and other fans, there’s no denying that the rapper did have some lighthearted fun at the office.

Employees shared photographs and videos of Lil Nas X making a literal panini while “Old Town Road” played in the background, swiping into the office, and enjoying a slice of cake. Lil Nas X also shared a photograph of some on-brand latte art that was there to welcome him.

Dorsey also joked that Lil Nas X’s Twitter visit would lead to the yet another “Old Town Road” remix. Though, surprisingly, we might actually not want another remix if it’s this one.

Some have pointed out that Twitter’s stock price has risen since Lil Nas X “took over” as CEO, but others, like Rogen, are simply asking the rapper to use his platform and time in the office to help inspire change on the social media site.

It should be noted that Twitter’s Q2 earnings are probably the reason for the stock increase. 

A year ago, in July 2018, a discouraged Rogen tweeted that he had been privately speaking with Dorsey about “his bizarre need to verify white supremacists on his platform” for months and felt that Dorsey didn’t “seem to give a fuck.”

Since then, the platform has banned several known white supremacists from the site, but Dorsey still has a long way to go in terms of handling harassment and ensuring users feel safe.

Area 51: ‘Trump knows more than he’s letting on’ – UFO researcher makes shock claim

Mr Trump was briefed recently after Navy pilots reported seeing “strange objects” flying at hypersonic speeds and emitting “no visible engine or infrared exhaust plumes.” And his cagey response during an interview with Fox News’ , in which he also responded to claims that the US military had retrieved wreckage from a mysterious UFO aircraft crash and had stored it an an air force base, caught the attention of researcher KM Lewis. Mr Lewis has recently written a novel entitled The Thirteenth Guardian, in which he outlines his extraordinary theory about Area 51, the secretive base in Nevada where conspiracy theorists claim the US Government is hiding evidence of technology.

He said: “I saw that interview; and also read the article on Express.co.uk.

“I did think the President’s body language and his desire to quickly change the topic suggests that he knows much more.

“I am convinced that there is a group of people that has gone to extreme lengths to conceal the real truth behind Area 51, Roswell and the unidentified craft/technology that people are seeing in the skies across the world today.

“A truth that has very far reaching implications.”

As well as Mr Trump, the US Defense Department also spoke to Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner and two other senators about naval encounters with .

Mr Trump told Mr Carlson: “Well, I don’t want to really get into it too much. But personally, I tend to doubt it.

“I mean, you have people that swear by it, right?

“And pilots have come in and they said – and these are not pilots that are into that particular world, but we have had people saying that they’ve seen things.

“I’m not a believer, but you know, I guess anything is possible.

“I don’t assume it’s correct. But, I have an open mind, Tucker.”

Mr Lewis has been researching the topic of Area 51 for more than 10 years.

He said: “I have been researching the topic for more than ten years: There are so many things about our world that have made no sense to me in the construct of the world that we have been taught: UFOs, the , H-Blocks in South America, Vimanas in India, Ezekiel’s Wheel in the Bible; just to name a few.

“All these things are very real and all suggest that there was very sophisticated technology that existed on Earth tens of thousands of years ago. Then it all vanished.

“I wanted to find out why. My research led me to a conclusion that sent chills down my spine – and that is why I wrote The Thirteenth Guardian.

“If true, it could be the greatest reveal in human history.

“And the doesn’t want anyone to know.”

MH370 FOUND? Missing Malaysia Airlines plane ‘discovered’ by rescue service – shock claim

The Malaysia Airlines 370 flight disappeared across the Indian Ocean according to its final radar data. But online theorists believe the plane, piloted by Captain Zaharie Shah, could have been secretly found. During the search and rescue of the plane in the ocean, the ship’s Automatic Identification System (AIS) was turned off for days preventing online observers from tracking its movements, ABC reported.

The ship, Seabed Constructor, appeared to make a circle in the Indian Ocean before going “dark” on tracking websites.

Twitter users went on to speculate what was inside the circle and why the tracking system had gone off just a few kilometres outside the circle.

One said: “I’m sticking with my theory that the big circle is a piece of debris, and the line south was to locate the plane. When they think they found it they turned off AIS as protocol.”

While another added: “This is strange. I have never seen a ship do this. Maybe there’s an AUV lost down there?”

The Seabed Constructor, operated by Ocean Infinity, spent two weeks scouring the ocean floor for the missing plane.

The company had signed a deal with the Malaysian Government to search for 90 days and receive payment between $20 million (£16million) and $70 million (£56million) if it found the plane.

Aviation expert, Juan Valcarcel dismissed speculation surrounding Ocean Infinity’s AIS going down during the search.

He explained they had a target and wouldn’t receive payment if they didn’t find anything.

A spokesman for Ocean Infinity told ABC News: “The stop was a quick turnaround of the vessel and then continuing with the search.”

While aviation experts added with the AIS turned off, the ship was still visible on marine radar systems.

In 2018, Oliver Plunkett, Ocean Infinity’s CEO, said: “I would firstly like to extend the thoughts of everyone at Ocean Infinity to the families of those who have lost loved ones on MH370.

“Part of our motivation for renewing the search was to try to provide some answers to those affected. It is therefore with a heavy heart that we end our current search without having achieved that aim.”

Time travel proof? YouTube star explains why ‘fourth dimension’ is key to time travelling

The prospect of reliving the past or travelling into the future is a tantalising one. But physicists who spend their days pondering the mysteries of time and space believe time travel might be within the realm of possibility. Now YouTube star Ethan Khan has addressed how the fourth dimension is key to travelling through time. He begins by confirming he does not claim to have time travelled physically and admits to having no physical proof for his claims.

Mr Khan said: “I know how time travel works because I understand how various dimensions are structured mathematically.

“And most mainstream physicists agree with what I am about to say.

“Time travel involves the fourth dimension – which to us three-dimensional beings is time.

“Time for any dimensional being is just the dimension above the one they are spatially in.

“Spatially, we are in three dimensions, so time for us for us is four dimensions.”

READ MORE: Powerful ‘UFO’ blasts can reshape galaxies

Mr Khan proceeds to ask his Apex TV viewers to visualise an infinite number of three dimensional universes stringed along a line.

He said: “That line is the fourth dimension – to us three dimensional beings, that is our timeline.

“Each one of those three dimensional universes stringed along it are all different moments in time.”

In order to time travel to these various past and future universes stringed along this line, you have to be able to access this forth dimension.

He explains how in the fourth dimension, all these past and future moments are not exclusive universes.

READ MORE: A rogue black hole is ‘rampaging’ through the Milky Way

It is only that way when you are a three-dimensional being.

When you are in the fourth dimension, all these past and future moments become merged into this one four dimensional universe.

Mr Khan said: If you just want to time travel into the future, you just move forward into four dimensional space.

“And if you want to move back wards in time, just move back wards through four-dimensional space.”

A four-dimensional being could accomplish what we call time travel simply by walking forwards or backwards.

By walking forwards, they are travelling to future moments of our three-dimensional universe.

And similarly, by walking backwards, they are travelling to past moments.

Time to them us not the fourth dimension – to them the fourth dimension is just another spatial dimension.

So, what we experience as time, they just experience as another dimension of space.

He then explains how to access the fourth dimension.

Mr Khan said: “Well, that involves what are called gravitons.

“In physics, gravitons are particles that create gravity.

“No-one really knows what gravitons are or even if they exist.”

Mr Khan believes gravitons are simply four-dimensional particles.

He said: “Every three-dimensional particle just spiral around these four-dimensional gravitons.

“And that is what creates time and gravity.”

Inventor Fails To Cross English Channel On Jet-Powered Hoverboard

SANGATTE, France, July 25 (Reuters) – A French inventor failed in his attempt to cross the English Channel on a jet-powered hoverboard on Thursday when he was knocked into the water as he landed on a boat-mounted refueling platform, his technical team said.

Franky Zapata lifted off near the northern port of Calais with 42 liters of kerosene in his backpack, enough for about 10 minutes of flight. He planned to strap on a new backpack on a vessel waiting midway across the 35-km wide Strait of Dover.

“It is a huge disappointment. He made his rendezvous with the refueling boat, but the landing platform hit the flyboard, which threw him off balance and knocked him into the water,“support crew member Stephane Denis told BFM television.

Zapata was making his attempt on the 110th anniversary of the first powered flight between Britain and France.

But Denis said that with the landing platform two meters above the deck, every movement of the ship on the waves was exaggerated, making landing difficult.

“He had practiced this maneuver in heavier seas without problems, but now, at the most important moment, it failed. Today was the 110th anniversary of Bleriot’s flight. It would have been a poignant moment,” Denis said.

He added that Zapata was unharmed and would make a new attempt as soon as possible.

Zapata had received a 1.3 million euro grant from the French army in late 2018 to help finance the development of the hoverboard, which is powered by five small jet engines.

Zapata took off from Sangatte, France, at 0706 GMT. Flying at up to 140 kph (87 mph) at an altitude of between 15 to 20 meters he had hoped to reach to Dover in about 20 minutes.

He disappeared from spectators’ view within moments, trailed by a helicopter, but minutes later his team announced the attempt had failed.

Zapata had wowed crowds during France’s July 14 Bastille Day celebrations, flying over a military parade on Paris’ Place de la Concorde in the presence of French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

On July 25, 1909, Frenchman Louis Bleriot became the first man to fly across the Channel in an airplane. Since then, Channel crossings have become a rite of passage for all kinds of new aircraft.

Zapata, a champion on jetski-powered waterboards, steers his craft by leaning forward or backward and controls thrust with a throttle connected to his 1,500 horsepower board.
