Is it common to have the Pentagon looking after the safety of SpaceX launches?


atwegotsidetrekked

Actually yes. The Air Force advanced medical and extraction teams are involved with every launch.


Orkojoker

That’s good. Didn’t realize that.

Yeah, and that's why Elon got in trouble for smoking weed on a podcast. To work with NASA you have to be compliant with the Air Force and Dod's regs.


NaruTheBuffMaster

He’s Elon musk though, he just got a slap on the wrist practically. They wouldn’t lose his contract or rip it up ever. Too much money saved, and IMO he’s the best chance we have of doing anything historic for a long time.


Adventurous-Media-53

Yeah that sentence confused me, but the Pentagon being the ones informing NASA of space stuff sure is interesting.


Orkojoker

That’s what I thought. I would think that stuff would be monitored by NASA. But I don’t know how all that works.

I appreciate you, f the haterz


Noob_Nooob

Thanks bud. Haterz always hatin


sr_zeke

Lmao, great answer, now since you were not there.. Let's leave it to unknown. And yes English is not my first language.


Noob_Nooob

Pulling your chain mate. But UFOs are commonly attached to “aliens” but they mean Unidentified Flying Objects. Which in this case, could have meant debris since they knew the target speed and projection, enough to avoid it.


sr_zeke

Correct mate.. But the article says unknown. So why someone who was not there or was part of the nasa team claims that its "something". I mean we just don't know.


Witty_Initial_6075

Lots of unknown space debris too. Thousands of bits up there unaccounted for. That's how I interpreted it haha.


Noob_Nooob

The article states it was an unidentified flying object. Which sums it down to not knowing what it is. I’m saying that, when the launch happened and they saw the UFO, they couldn’t avoid it as they would with such debris maneuvers So they were treating it as debris, but labeled it as a UFO because of the unknown factor. So yes, there are assumptions to this article, however you want to articulate it I guess. I’m not saying you where wrong, I was simply stating that the article made it sound to me that it was debris. But that’s my take. Not an alien spaceship. Edit: had to throw in a where in the paragraph. Haha


sr_zeke

Now i understand better.. You are right. I'm sorry if I miss interpreted you.


Noob_Nooob

It’s Mr. Interpreted to you. I’m pulling your chain. I do admire your English tho. It’s really good. Words are hard in our language. Cheers!!


sr_zeke

Lmao cheers

This is a “UFO” in the strictest sense of the term. It was an object, flying, and they don’t know what it was. Probably debris from lord knows what; it’s awfully crowded up there.
