NASA president Jim Bridenstine announced the reason for launching a security review of SpaceX and Boeing, which built space ships for astronauts, including the workplace culture and non-drug policies of the US space agency this week.
NASA acknowledged that the media reports have launched an investigation into the emergence of a contested podcast from the joint use of SpaceX CEO & # 39; Su Elon Musk, which Bridenstine admitted at a roundtable meeting with reporters on Thursday "did not help."
He added that the United States has been calling for a security review to be made on November 20th by the two companies that were tasked with building the spacecraft to make space – once again – a capacity for retirement to lose in 2011. space shuttle program.
"We had several conversations," Bridenstine told The Atlantic.
”I'll tell you, he (Musk) is as committed to security as anyone and you realize that it's not appropriate and you won't see it again.“
Afterwards, Bridenstine told AFP that the review showed how NASA took the safety of astronauts seriously.
Uz The fact is, for the first time since 2011, we're preparing to launch American astronomers from American soil to American rockets, and we want to make sure we have a cultural appraisal and safety assessment of each of our suppliers. I said.
Edi If you look at the history of how accidents occurred, if a security assessment has been made in the past, and the organizations involved in the mission include things like leadership and culture and security, “he added.
"We didn't want to wait until we had an accident, because we don't believe it would be an accident, but we wanted to make sure we did it early, not after the fact."
SpaceX has been a contractor of NASA since 2012 and has been carrying materials to the International Space Station on the Dragon Cargo.
The next year, SpaceX is preparing for the first flight of the Dragon crew capsule with two astronauts on a Falcon 9 rocket.
An empty test flight is scheduled for January 7, 2019 in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
