Musk accidentally tweets his phone number to 16.7m folllowers

Elon Musk gave his 16.7 million Twitter followers what he meant to send to the chief technology officer of virtual-reality company Oculus: his phone number.

“Do you have a sec to talk? My cell is …” Musk wrote from his account to John Carmack, the CTO of Facebook-owned Oculus. The Tesla chief executive officer quickly deleted the post.

A call placed to the number that Musk tweeted went to voicemail and played a message from the video game God of War.

“By the Gods you’ve done it,” the message intones. “Somehow you’ve found your way here to me. I offer you my congratulations and my respect.”

The tweet invited speculation that Musk, 46, may have been trying to recruit Carmack or was seeking ways for Oculus to cooperate with any of the many businesses he runs.

Those include the electric-car maker Tesla, rocket company SpaceX, artificial intelligence researcher OpenAI, brain-computer interface developer Neuralink and tunnel digger The Boring Company.

Elon Musk quickly deleted the post which included his phone number.

A Facebook spokeswoman said Carmack doesn’t plan to leave the company. Representatives for Tesla and Space Exploration Technologies didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Virtual and augmented reality are playing significant roles in the development of autonomous cars. Engineers for companies including Alphabet’s Waymo are turning to simulation platforms to test and train their self-driving systems that are being primed to navigate vehicles as well as – or ideally better than – human drivers.

Before diving into virtual reality, Carmack built a company that attempted to make a craft for suborbital space tourism.

After spending millions, he shuttered it in 2013. Still, he’s maintained an interest in the sector and has interacted with Musk over Twitter before.

Saving Mother Earth

Are we using today’s best technologies and using the Earth’s resources efficiently?

There are tons of ways to produce energy from a scientific point of view. As we all know, energy, cannot be destroyed and can only be transferred or transformed into another form of energy. In today’s modern society, one of the most commercial energy sources is electricity.

Solar power is produced by collecting sunlight and converting it into electricity. This is done by using solar panels, which are large flat panels made up of many individual solar cells. It is most often used in remote locations, although it is becoming more popular in urban areas as well. This page contains articles that explore advances in solar energy technology.

In current science today, we are up to date with the latest technology that is provided by our brainstorming scientists and plethora of researchers. Nikolai Tesla was one of the few geniuses who discovered the power of electricity and free energy. However, the more famously known Thomas Edison was the one who commercialized and made electrical energy available to the rest of the world. This was a historic moment of human existence on Earth, regarding the debate and battles of controversy between what we may know today as ‘free energy’ and ‘coal-powered electrical energy.’

There are tons of other sources of energy on our dear planet, however, it is an obvious sign that many of our resources are depleting. This is due to over usage and wastage in excess of these energy sources. Carbon, also known as CO2, is the base of all things living and non-living on Earth is the main source. World carbon emissions are over the top now as we continue to use fossil fuels, oil & gas, coal and more.

Below is a graph chart to depict the numbers per metric ton.

As you can see above, the numbers keep rising and rising as we continue to grow and evolve as one race and together as carbon based lifeforms. Getting worried now?

Here’s how we can help contribute to saving the planet by reducing our carbon footprints.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

If you live in a big city, chances are that you are not committing all the aforementioned steps for reducing your carbon footprint, assuming you are not a peace and love kinda hippie from the 70s. I am also guilty as charged, doing my very best to contribute in a positive manner towards our planet. Let’s work towards our common goal of preserving our resources and lifeforms in this beautiful world that we share!
