Big Tech Update
This is how SpaceX violated its launch licenseSpaceX’s future launches are getting lots of extra scrutiny thanks to the explosive ending to the Starship 8 test launch back in December.
As it turns out, SpaceX’s high-altitude launch of the Starship prototype in December 2020 violated the company’s launch license and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) wasn’t too happy about it. Due to the violation, and the Starship’s explosion upon landing, the FAA launched a full investigation of the botched test flight.
The investigation isn’t the only thing SpaceX has to sweat from the FAA. Sources close to the investigation indicate that SpaceX was cited for refusing to adhere to the terms agreed upon and authorized by the FAA, though the sources did not indicate exactly what terms were broken.
What else do we know about the FAA’s scrutiny of SpaceX and what does this mean for future launches?
