Elon Musk's rocket company SpaceX cuts one tenth of workforce
Elon Musk’s rocket company SpaceX will reduce its workforce by about 10% of the company’s more than 6,000 employees.
The company said it will “part ways” with some of its manpower, citing “extraordinarily difficult challenges ahead”.
“To continue delivering for our customers and to succeed in developing interplanetary spacecraft and a global space-based Internet, SpaceX must become a leaner company. Either of these developments, even when attempted separately, have bankrupted other organisations,” a spokesman said in an email.
In June, Elon Musk fired at least seven people in the senior management team leading a SpaceX satellite launch project, it was reported in November. The firings were related to disagreements over the pace at which the team was developing and testing its Starlink satellites.
