SpaceX is ‘operating at a high cycle of innovation’

SpaceX is “operating at a such a high cycle of innovation” as the successful launch of a rocket prototype comes less than six months after earlier prototypes exploded on the launchpad, according to US Centre Nonresident Fellow James Brown.

“It’s pretty extraordinary and the picture of that launch doesn’t do it justice, that’s a 20-story building being launched ten kilometres in the air and then gently set down where it took off from,” he told Sky News.

Mr Brown said SpaceX had been able to isolate the issue with the previous launch and fix it so quickly to in order to have a successful launch in less than half a year.

“They’re operating at such a high cycle of innovation that they can get it fixed, get the technology deployed, and get it tested.”
