Tesla Gigafactory Austin 4K Day 290 - 5/8/21 - Terafactory TX - A BEAUTIFUL SATURDAY AT GIGA TEXAS!

Weekends are slower than weekdays but there is still major progress happening every single day at Giga Texas! Today's video features the West side, the new HGR road expansion, and lots of Saturday crane action (please note that I arrived at lunch time).

Please enjoy the video and as always, I appreciate all comments, questions, statements, proclamations and otherwise below!

    If you remove the arguably unnecessary "Terafactory TX" from every title, you have a better chance of having everything else fit.

    You might inform Autel of the gimbal issues. I never heard of a gimble acting like that even in high winds. Even if Autel says that it is expected you can inform them that it is unacceptable. Never seen a DJI Drone do that except when damaged.

    Tesla used up a lot of his cash in Q1 before in Q4 3019 down to 1641 million $ and capital costs increased from 1151 to 1348 million $ same time revenues Q1 down to 9002 from 9314 million $ Q4 also deliveries up to 184877 from 180667 in Q4 so tesla would run out of money in Q3. How we know that hot plasma fusion like in sun never leads to durable reactor ? No containment can hold the heat radiation from swinging of D+T for fusion barrier about 0.1 MeV but cold fusion possible shooting into water pressuring H against H in angled H2O with neutrons in reactor or Hg from ring accelerator or U-235 fission particles 167 MeV etc. OK but LNG truck was just still payed nonsense instead 700+ bar CNG truck and cars also with distribution in big 2t 2.4m 1000+ bar CNG pebbles 5 connected 40' ISO container filled with LNG at terminals placed and empty fetched or filled from LNG transportation truck quickly worldwide on all fuel stations or at home also for trains and airplanes. LNG is only less more dense than CNG at 700+ ot 1000+ bar not worth the cooling effort for small tanks like for big pebbles of ships with volume r³ surface r² and every LNG fuel station can offer 700+ bar CNG for tank size about same gasoline tank and end price in BRD at fuel station 80 Cent-€ easy possible at LNG terminal 30 Cent-€/kg makes many to change to CNG (hybrid) cars ! CNG never going out because also makeable not only as Bio CNG also in Sabatier process out of electrolyse H2+air CO2 that way carbon free cycle with energy from water, sun, nuclear and cold fusion etc. CO2 is much heavier than N2 and O2 easy & cheap out of air with gas centrifuge together with argon Ar but that is not reacting with H2. CNG is securer than kerosene and gasoline also securer than LNG staying first cold down not up and away like CNG in high pressure stable tanks with overpressure valve and way to stream up away with higher ignition point etc. kayuweboehm@yahoo.de

    Notice the protest was gone. Looks like they could wrap up the framing today on the battery building but, Monday is more like it. I noticed yesterday that there are some beams missing on the western side of the top beam on the battery building. I wonder if that will for skylights are they haven't arrived yet.

    @Red October It's a tradition in the steel erection business. When a major section is completed, the workers sign the last beam to bolt in and it's hoisted up with a small tree on it

    Wow. That is A LOT of steel work for one day. I suspect they'll have to hold off on the central corridor until the paint shop filter work is done to frame that in, but man is it moving quickly.

    I don't really understand, but I've seen this done in other places, for storm water management. If you're in Austin, go to Pease Park; they have some colorful cross-section diagrams set up to explain it the public. Something about beneficial bacteria breaking down pollutants in the water, before it drains off to wherever (to Shoal Creek, in the case of Pease Park). Basically, when it rains, all the dog sh*t and roadway oil goes down the storm sewers and into these catchment ponds. Beats me where the pipes go; they didn't diagram that. For greywater treatment, it might be a bubbler pipe: they pump air down into it, and let it bubble up through the water; prevents methane from accumulating (and smelling bad .. well, I guess its the sulfer/sulfides that smell bad...) So, whiz-bang wastewater chemistry treatment.

    The trench and bottom of the pit are filled with a layer of gravel and a layer of sand on top of the gravel. The dirty water filters through the layers and drains into the "french drain" pipe in the trench and comes out clean with no mud.
