Yes both are inlfated under pressure and have a stretchy skin.. If you made a balloon with very thick plastic is would be more like a tyre

Tires have cord plies an steel belts which are not stretchy at all.

Yes they are stretchy too. Just to a lesser extent..

Tyres also have to cope with huge forces for example.


The Bugatti Chiron's tyres can withstand 3,800G.

Always got time for David Bowie's "Starman" and the fun stuff SpaceX does.

David Bowie: Starman
Greenbaum: Spirit in the Sky

didn't recognize the third song.

There's a strawman flying through the sky with multiple dashcams to blew our minds.


That's what I saw.



But my hair is made of tinfoil, so there's that as well. Thanks for sharing!

Everyone is so impressed and amazed...

Meh.

Elon should have sent himself in a dragon capsule.

It's what Howard Hughes would have done.

HUMANS...we've gone soft.


Hah! You, my friend, have the true mindset of an actual genius.


Soon Musk did his best with the technology available to him. He sent a piece of metal in space.

A true genius seeks the impossible, and creates the technology to reach for that which we though could never exist.

I'd laugh and laugh if ET grabs it, and sends back pictures of it with the wheels and radio gone, and the thing has cement blocks glued to the bottom.
