SpaceX, the aerospace company of Elon Musk, plans to lay off 10% of its workforce. Or what is the same, 600 of the 6,000 professionals of the company.
There are no good times for Elon Musk when it comes to Tesla: he received a fine of 20,000 million dollars and his expulsion as president of Tesla following the stupid announcement on Twitter that he would take the company out of the stock exchange, and then back down. He also starred in a scandal by insulting a man who saved dozens of lives in Thailand by calling him a “pedophile.” But it seems that the controversial technological leader does not go through sweet times with what was always his ‘right eye’: SpaceX.
And we are not referring to NASA’s warning to Musk to leave the joints and alcohol, but to the aerospace company plans to lay off 10% of its workforce. Or what is the same, 600 of the 6,000 professionals of the company.
SpaceX has already confirmed the news to North American media, appealing that it will “dispense” from its personnel for the “extraordinarily difficult challenges on the horizon”. In its public statement, the firm declares that “to continue delivering our customers and succeed in the development of interplanetary spacecraft and a space-based global Internet, SpaceX must become a more agile company. Any of these developments, even when they were tried separately, have bankrupted other organizations. “
