Shortly before Elon Musk took the victory to showcase the SpaceX Star Warship in Texas, NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstein congratulated him, saying his organization "expected to see the same enthusiasm that is focused on US taxpayer investment." He referred to the long-delayed Commercial Crew program, in which SpaceX takes part in its Dragon crew.
Musk responded by opening his own often delayed NASA, SLS project when asked for comment. Bridenstine is scheduled to visit SpaceX Headquarters in Hawthorne, California, for a tour to check on the company's progress, followed by a media availability session. He will be there next to Mosk, as well as two astronauts who plan to fly on a test flight of the Dragon Demo-2 on the ISS, Bob Benken and Doug Gerley.
