NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION COMES A KNOCKIN' FOR WORK CULTURE ASSESSMENT
News by Editorial Team 21 Nov 2018
NASA recently announced that it would conduct checks the overall safety work culture in two of the world’s largest private space contractors, Boeing and Space X, even as the players gear up to send astronauts into space on their own. NASA announced its “cultural assessment” that would include compliance to a drug-free environment at both the companies, among speculation and reports that Space X chief Elon Musk was filmed drinking whiskey and smoking marijuana, shockingly enough, during a live podcast recently.
The two private companies will be selected for the commercial crew program aiming to send astronauts to space by next year. Both the companies stated that they were in full adherence to drug-free and healthy work environment guidelines.
