For many of us, Tesla is a new entrant in the global auto industry but Elon Musk has actually become the longest serving CEO in today’s automotive segment.

The feat was achieved when then-Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche, serving as the German automaker’s CEO since 2006, retired in May this year, Teslarati reported on Wednesday.


Musk took over as the electric car maker’s CEO in 2008.

Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi saw veteran CEO Carlos Ghosn quitting over his alleged connection with a high-profile financial scandal.

Last month, Mitsubishi also announced the departure of its CEO Osamu Masuko.

BMW CEO Harald Kruger has also announced his retirement.

Many automakers have new CEOs and only Akio Toyoda of Toyota who joined in 2009 is close behind Musk.

Under Musk, Tesla is breaking all records. The electric car-maker achieved a record production of 87,048 vehicles and record deliveries of approximately 95,200 vehicles in the second quarter of 2019.

In the quarter (April-June 2019), Tesla produced new 72,531 Model 3 sedans and delivered 77,550 of those.

In addition, 14,517 new Model SX cars were made and 17,650 of those were delivered.

Customer vehicles in transit at the end of the quarter were over 7,400.

Musk has repeatedly pushed workers to hit quarterly goals while managing all the extra production and delivery work piling up toward the end of a quarter. (IANS)

"The discovery of each new world provides a unique glimpse into the physics that play a role in planet formation," said lead author Jon Zink, a UCLA postdoctoral scholar.

An international team of astronomers has identified 366 new exoplanets, using data from the NASA Kepler Space Telescope's K2 mission. The findings, described in a paper published in the Astronomical Journal, showed a planetary system that comprises a star and at least two gas giant planets, each roughly the size of Saturn and located unusually close to one another.

The discovery is significant because it's rare to find gas giants -- like Saturn in the solar system -- as close to their host star as they were in this case. The researchers cannot yet explain why it occurred there, but it makes the finding especially useful because it could help scientists form a more accurate understanding of the parameters for how planets and planetary systems develop.

The winter comes with its own set of hassles. New moms have to be careful because they have to take care of themselves and their babies. It becomes imperative to protect babies from the harsh season. The immune system of newborn babies is developing, which makes them susceptible to respiratory infections. But, you can take preventive measures to keep your child warm and safe. Newborn babies need extra care until their immune system becomes stronger to protect their bodies from the harmful effects of viruses and bacteria that usually become more active in the winter season. A drop in the temperature can aggravate different processes in the body, therefore, moms need to take extra care of newborn babies during winters.
