Boeing’s CEO Dennis Muilenburg stated his thoughts on bringing back Elon Musk’s sensational Tesla Roadster SpaceX to Earth.
During Politico Space Forum, he was challenged to state his opinion about Tesla Roadster SpaceX project that orbits the Earth now. As we know, the launching of Musk’s car (completed with ‘Starman’ mannequin behind the wheel) has made an internet phenomenon. Slightly joking, Muilenburg said that he’s thinking of taking the Roadster back to Earth.
Both Boeing and SpaceX now hold a USA government contract for commercial space travel – or space taxis. The obsession of bringing passengers to orbit the Earth has created this rivalry as both are working under NASA.
