South African-Canadian-American entrepreneur and billionaire Elon Musk caused controversy on Twitter by talking about UFOs. “I’m not saying that there are UFOs… But UFOs do exist”, publishes the creator of the aerospace company SpaceX.
Elon Musk was responding to a tweet about technology embedded in the FSD V10 model of his Tesla electric vehicle that allows the car to dodge any object.
“FSD 10 predicts height directly in the video pixel, with no need to classify groups of pixels as objects. In principle, even if a UFO crashed into a highway in front of him, he [Tesla] had managed to avoid the wreckage. Still, it takes work to adjust the sensitivity”, explains the billionaire on Twitter.
Of course, despite using unidentified flying objects as simple examples, Elon Musk received dozens of comments from social network users intrigued by the possibility of the existence of UFOs.
FSD 10 predicts height from video pixels directly, without needing to classify groups of pixels into objects.
In principle, even if a UFO crashed on the road right in front of you, it would still avoid the debris.
Some work still needed to tune sensitivity.

“Now there’s no doubt… It’s just a matter of time,” says the profile @edgarrr_12 in response to the South African businessman.
“And the aliens are among us,” comments user @justpaulinelol on Twitter.
“I thought you said that if there were UFOs, you would know about it. Are you saying you know about UFOs?” asks @long_elon on the same social network.
“Perhaps SpaceX could take advantage of Starlink’s [satellite network] connectivity to transmit live images from space 24 hours, 7 days a week,” says the profile @michaelhodapp_ in response to Elon Musk.
Remember that in April of this year, SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Endeavor capsule, which was heading for the International Space Station, had “contact” with an unidentified flying object, according to NASA.
“The possibility of a collision reached such an approach point that there was no time to safely calculate and execute the debris prevention maneuver. So, the SpaceX team chose to make the crew wear their pressurized suits as a precaution,” said Kelly Humphries, a NASA spokeswoman, quoted by the American newspaper New York Post at the time.
At the height of the approach, the UFO passed about 44 km away from Elon Musk’s spacecraft. Still, the US space agency spokesman said there was no real danger to the Crew Dragon Endeavor crew.
