I post this story about SpaceX winning an award for its safety-in-design work mostly to illustrate again that, except for one lone commenter on my webpage, most of the aerospace industry recognizes the generally good work that SpaceX has been doing. Not only do their recognize it, they have found themselves struggling to meet the competitive challenge that SpaceX now represents, an effort that has been all to the good for everyone in the space industry.

    Sorry to hear that. I had hoped that you would make it through this difficult time for the company.

  • Sorry to hear that you are being laid off. Look hard, I am sure you can find work with another company, as there are signs that the business is growing.
