“Today’s anomaly at SpaceX was unfortunate, but yet another demonstration that spaceflight is a dangerous business.

Fortunately, because of the rigorous safety procedures in our industry no one was hurt, and we commend the Air Force safety office for their fast response.

We are confident that SpaceX will identify the problem, fix it, and get back in the business of flying.

No less encouraging was the quick statements of support from Congress for the commercial launch industry in the wake of this event.”
