Elon Musk has shared a new family photo of himself, his son, and his wife, Grimes, from the SpaceX facility in Texas.
The billionaire shared the photo across Twitter on Monday night, featuring a rare glimpse of his son, X Æ A-Xii.
The couple sparked controversy (and plenty of jokes) last May after revealing their son’s peculiar name.
Grimes explained last spring that X represents the “unknown variable” in mathematics, Æ is the couple’s “elf spelling of AI,” and the A-Xii references the Lockheed A-12 Archangel — an homage to their favorite aircraft, which has “no weapons, no defenses, just speed,” said Grimes at the time.
