US-basedSouth African entrepreneur and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has apparently once again managed to stoke speculations about making an electric supersonic plane with no more than a brief, non-committal message on social media.
“One day,” Musk tweeted in response to Twitter user FaZe Censor inquiring when he is going to “make planes faster.”
