About Chanan Bos

Chanan Bos Chanan grew up in a multicultural, multi-lingual environment that often gives him a unique perspective on a variety of topics. He is always in thought about big picture topics like AI, quantum physics, philosophy, Universal Basic Income, climate change, sci-fi concepts like the singularity, misinformation, and the list goes on. Currently, he is studying creative media & technology but already has diplomas in environmental sciences as well as business & management. His goal is to discourage linear thinking, bias, and confirmation bias whilst encouraging out-of-the-box thinking and helping people understand exponential progress. Chanan is very worried about his future and the future of humanity. That is why he has a tremendous admiration for Elon Musk and his companies, foremost because of their missions, philosophy, and intent to help humanity and its future. He sees Tesla as one of the few companies that can help us save ourselves from climate change.

Elon Musk Talks Tesla Terawatt-Hours. We Run Some Numbers.

July 31st, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

At CleanTechnica, we have already written a few articles about this, but until the Q2 investor call, it was just a theory. In fact, even some of my colleagues considered it bullish and so in some ways I consider this to be my theory and am extremely stoked that Elon confirmed it and that this will actually happen. My writing on this started in 2018 with the article “The Future We Need — From The Tesla Gigafactory To A Chain Of Terafactories.”


Self-Driving Gas Car — A Horse Led By A Carrot On A Stick?

July 13th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Elon Musk has said that buying a car today that will not be upgradable to enable full autonomy is like buying a horse. It's implied that this means you should buy a Tesla, since we're not aware of any other cars on the market that will be upgradeable to full self-driving capability. But one topic that doesn't get discussed much is electric versus gasoline self-driving cars. Will people be able to buy gasoline self-driving cars? Well, I imagine Elon would call a self-driving gas car a horse with a carrot on a stick in front of it. Let's explore why


Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Future & What That Could Mean In Some Wild Scenarios

July 12th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Elon Musk shook things up on Twitter a bit this week. Some fans got concerned Tesla would stop selling cars at some point, but the core point was simply that the value of Tesla cars will go up a lot once Full Self Driving is implemented. Elon clarified that what he meant was simply that the price was going to go up significantly


Tesla’s New HW3 Self-Driving Computer — It’s A Beast (CleanTechnica Deep Dive)

June 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

A month ago, Tesla revealed several secrets regarding the new chip the Silicon Valley company has designed for full self-driving capability. Nonetheless, some of the people making that presentation may have failed to take into account that not everyone is fully literate in microprocessor design and engineering. I don't fall into that category either, but I have been a computer enthusiast for quite some time and know a few things that might help me pick out some of the highlights, point out why they are so exciting, and further communicate how Tesla really is way ahead of the competition


While Starman Is In Space, “Big Oil Strikes Back!”

June 11th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

SpaceX and Tesla are more than just companies. They are a revolution of the status quo and an inspiration for millions of people. So, when these two companies come to together for a project, the result cannot be anything other than epic. That is one way to describe the birth of Starman, who was launched into space in Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster as the payload of the very first Falcon Heavy. That means that Starman is now exploring the solar system — or is he

Tesla Gigafactory 1 Timeline & Results — CleanTechnica Deep Dive

January 20th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

Tesla’s Gigafactory 1 in Nevada is a proof of concept. Originally, the factory was supposed to be completed in 2020, have a production capacity of 35 GWh of battery cells and 50 GWh of battery packs, and employ 6,500 people. In 2017, these plans were altered publicly, as Elon Musk claimed that the company found a way to use space more efficiently and set a new goal of 105 GWh of battery cells and 150 GWh of battery packs. That would also mean employing around 10,000 people when complete


Tesla Headlines This Week: 50 Positive, 25 Negative, 25 Neutral — #Pravduh About #Tesla Report 19

January 15th, 2019 | by Chanan Bos

This past week was one of the most positive and least negative we have had so far with regards to Tesla headlines in the mainstream media, but it doesn't actually break any records. There were a few unusual things about the news coverage this week. For example, Bloomberg was extremely positive. That said, a lot of news can't be categorized easily in a topic group of recurring headlines, and more so when not related to Tesla stock. Two good examples this week

A Not So Merry FUDmas — #Pravduh About #Tesla Report 16

December 24th, 2018 | by Chanan Bos

This past week, the stock market kept panicking, everyone was looking at what is going on in the White House, and the most positive major thing that happened was Elon Musk unveiling the first Boring Company tunnel. At the same time, there was a lot of negative news regarding Tesla: 10 stories related to the stock market, 10 about a few people departing Tesla, 6 about the spontaneous combustion of a Tesla Model S (whose battery was apparently shot — like, with a gun), and the rest on various other topics


A Week Of FUD — #Pravduh About #Tesla Report 15

December 17th, 2018 | by Chanan Bos

Only a week to go till Christmas and Tesla failing seems to be on the wish list of certain journalists, but because their paycheck probably comes in part from fossil fuels, a lump of coal is all they will get for their troubles. Some of the headlines that we saw this week were so outrageous that they have no place in the mainstream media, a tabloid maybe. This is what we mean
