A handful of rogue, now former employees of SpaceX made headlines last week for putting together a petition, writing a letter to the editor, or doing something else equally ineffective that showed they aren’t the type of employees Elon Musk looks for in his company.
While Musk was able to rid himself of a small woke brigade who claimed their CEO was a source of embarrassment and annoyance for the company, the ringleaders were fired for getting in the way of more important work, the brainiacs that enjoy working at SpaceX were doing something that caught the attention of the boss in a good way.
Musk tweeted his support by saying, “Congrats to SpaceX Falcon team for executing 3 flawless launches in 2 days!”
Here are the specifics; on June 17, SpaceX put 53 more Starlink internet satellites into orbit, launching them from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
On Saturday, they launched a radar satellite for the German military. Then Sunday, SpaceX completed a two-stage Falcon 9 rocket launch. It took off from Cane Canaveral Space Station in Florida and landed back on earth 10 minutes after liftoff.
