In today's only, the space billionaire will have a New York Times special airing next month on Hulu and FX, though he will probably not be too pleased with the topic.
Despite and Musk's "outlandish" claims, Elon Musk's Crash Course will investigate the criticism that self-driving automobiles are the future's route.
The film traces how Autopilot has been a factor in several fatalities and dozens of other accidents that Tesla has not publicly acknowledged. It details pressure Elon Musk put on government officials to investigate and features inside stories from several former Tesla employees, who criticize Musk for advocating a self-driving program.
Elon Musk sparked his fortune and earned his place, taking bold risks, and betting on the impossible. But the story of his self-driving journey has put Musk on a crash course with both business realities and technology limits. Yet, even after years of unfilled promises, Elon Musk continues to double down on his Full Self-Driving service, which has been debunked.
Unless Musk buys them out, the special will be launched on Friday, May 20th at 10 pm ET simultaneously. Featured in past New York Times documentary films include Britney Spears' conservatory, Janet Jackson's famous Super Bowl appearance, and the rise of electronic cigarettes.
