NASA orders safety review of SpaceX after Elon Musk's joint-smoking

NASA orders safety review of SpaceX after Elon Musk's joint-smoking

Overall, both capsules will go through an uncrewed test and a crewed one, before being ready for their first real missions. Musk is a brilliant guy, but he also likes to push the envelope in ways that tend to worry those he does business with. According to interlocutors of the edition, after the appearance of Smoking Mask the transfer of some senior NASA representatives attended internal culture in both companies, which were selected to deliver astronauts to the ISS.

NASA associate administrator William Gerstenmaier told the Washington Post a months-long assessment would "examine everything and anything that could impact safety", including hundreds of interviews to assess the culture of each companies' workplace. In 2014, NASA awarded contracts - $4.2 billion to Boeing and $2.6 billion SpaceX - to fly its astronauts under what is known as the "Commercial Crew Program". There is nothing more important to SpaceX than this endeavor, and we take seriously the responsibility that NASA has entrusted in us to safely and reliably carry American astronauts to and from the International Space Station. This is clearly in light of the announcement NASA made yesterday when they said they would conduct a cultural assessment study and check the adherence towards a drug-free environment in both the companies.

Founded by Tesla Inc Chief Executive Elon Musk, SpaceX said it plans to launch its first crewed mission in June 2019 if the January 7 test is successful, but that the timeline may shift. "As always, NASA will ensure they do so", a NASA spokesperson said.




The Falcon 9 booster will blast off from Kennedy Space Center's Launch Pad 39A, which has a new crew access arm installed on the launch tower for eventual manned missions. "We fully expect our commercial partners to meet all workplace safety requirements in the execution of our missions and the services they provide the American people".

Boeing said in an emailed statement that it was committed to mission success as NASA's partner, while ensuring the integrity, safety and quality of its products, its people and their work environment. More specifically, individuals with high levels of government security clearance are under obligation to stay drug-free.
