One of Elon Musk's 60 million followers on Twitter asked SpaceX CEO about Biden: 'The President of the United States refused to recognize even the 4 youngest American astronauts, who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude. What is your theory about why this happened?";
Musk replied: “He is still asleep".
As previously reported by CNBC, the spacecraft Crew Dragon of SpaceX returned safely to Earth. The capsule transported the four members of the Inspiration4 mission back to Earth after three days in space.
An important goal of the Inspiration4 mission was the $ 200 million fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. By Saturday, it had raised $ 160,2 million. Elon Musk vowed to offers another $ 50 million, increasing the total amount of the campaign to $ 210 million.
Unlike Biden, Top NASA officials immediately congratulate Musk and SpaceX to send Inspiration4. Competitors also recognized the success of SpaceX, as large companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Blue Origin praised the company through social media.
In fact, SpaceX's Inspiration 4 mission was really important, as it marked SpaceX's first space flight with non-professional astronauts.
Although Elon Musk recently stated that “he would rather stay out of politics", His ironic comment about Joe Biden shows that the CEO of SpaceX could not contain his displeasure. In fact, the specific comment (“still asleep") Seems to be a continuation of a comment made by <br><br>Donald Trump for Biden a while ago. In June, Trump said ahead of a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin: "Good luck to Biden for meeting with President Putin - do not sleep during the meeting and please give him my warmest greetings"!
In general, SpaceX maintains a good relationship with the federal government. For example, he won a $ 2,89 billion contract for the next one NASA mission to the moon.
However, the company is also under investigation by the Ministry of Justice after allegations that it discriminated against people looking for work.
