If Elon Musk wants to launch American astronauts into space, he can’t smoke weed and drink whiskey on a podcast again.

LOOKS LIKE A CIGAR to me. (See Apollo 13 control room in the real life scenario, not the movie.)





That’s a message from Jim Bridenstine, the nasa administrator, to the founder of SpaceX, which, along with Boeing, is developing transportation systems that would allow the United States to fly nasa astronauts from American soil for the first time since the space shuttle was retired in 2011.

nasa’s contracts with SpaceX and Boeing require both contractors to “maintain a program for achieving a drug- and alcohol-free workforce” and conduct “preemployment, reasonable suspicion, random, post-accident, and periodic recurring testing of contractor employees in sensitive positions for use, in violation of applicable law or federal regulation, of alcohol or a controlled substance.”

Attempt by NASA to discredit Musk and perhaps later assimilate his SpaceX assets and programmes ..?
They would! The US remains a litigious dog-eat-dog, or I'll eat you alive predator culture.

An unusual dream indeed, as the ship I rammed belonged to The Vulcans.
I shall now walk onto their bridge and inspect all round for damage."
