Re: Security

My point was really that if someone can get malware (which seems to be the claim here) into something involved in designing spacecraft and, for instance, adjust design parameters then quite bad things could happen to the spacecraft.

But this was wrong: if a rocket blows up &/or fails in a way that kills its crew (I know, they are unmanned so far but not presumably in the future) then it's a very visible thing which kills a few people; if someone can do the same thing to a car design then it's a probably less visible thing which could kill a large number of people. So Tesla's security matters more & I was wrong. Or, well, it would matter more if they could actually manage to make any cars.
