Elon Musk, the US rocket tycoon who threatened to settle on Mars, has recently been a bit annoyed. This may be the second major crisis in the American scientific and technological community since the 1990s. Musk has made such a self-parody.
Yesterday, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket carrying 48 “Starling” satellites was successfully launched into space as usual. The launch is SpaceX’s 27th Falcon 9 mission this year, surpassing the 26 set in 2020. The achievement of this work. However, due to concerns lurking in the core of the rocket, Musk was not happy with it. Wrong on Thanksgiving Day. Almost to the point of wreaking havoc on the company, Intel CEO Andrew Grove worked hard for this (he learned about cancer this year) and summed up his crisis management experience: “Only paranoia survives.” The popular parable survives the same paranoia as the title of a new book published in 1996.
