      @The visitor101 look at the faintest events. Elon came out and said Ai is very dangerous to humanity then some individuals promised him $ billions to buy tesla back he mentioned it in the media. Followed up by encouragement to smoke weed on Joe rogan. He was then fined millions and removed as the head of tesla. And whom ever promised him the $ billions. Vanished. That was to teach him to keep his mouth shut and do as he is told .. Elon like others are the front men supported by persons in the shadows.
      I would not be surprised if this was another lesson to remind him to toe the line.
      Coincidently Elon forgot about his fears of Ai and now he is to achieve the assimilation of Ai into human brain by end of 2020 (from intrallink presentation ). See the bigger picture. Don't just watch the magician waving hand or the sexy assistant. YOU UNDERSTAND ME? ??

      @Sirius Magus If those satellites are of the same quality as this car, then it's nothing to worry about.

      @machoneboard it was meant to shatter. There is no back stop for the rock for when it bounces off bulletproof glass to keep it from hitting the audience.

      The engineers weren't expecting elon to throw the ball at it so they didn't put in the bulletproof windows.
      Maybe do your research next time

    "it didn't go through". Well no, but it left a hole in the glass, so technically, it penetrated the glass.

    Why would you leave it on stage and why not have a backup waiting incase something failed? Apple has backups on stage for when their computers stop working mid-demo.

    Bullet proof glass still breaks, the steel ball was probably a close demonstration, force equals mass times acceleration and the mass of the ball made up for acceleration

    The glass broke because when he hit the door the made the window to fall a little bit the window has to be stable for it not to break that’s how it broke

      to be fair, the goal would be to break through the glass, bullet proof glass looks the same after shooting it more or less, depending on several factors.

    I think when they hit the door with a hammer, it weakened the windows and possibly losend the bearings. I would say the window would have been fine if they did the window test before the door test
