SpaceX Announces It's Laying Off 10% Of Its Stellar Workforce
SpaceX announces that it is cutting down its workforce by approximately 10%.
The news coming only days after CEO Elon Musk revealed the first images of his aerospace company’s Starship test rocket.
In a statement released to Gizmodo SpaceX says, “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 organizations." The Time obtained an internal email from SpaceX President and Chief Operating Officer Gwynne Shotwell regarding the most recent round of layoffs wherein she describes the layoffs as "a very difficult but necessary decision.”
