NASA To Musk: Stop Smoking Pot If You Want To Work With Us

WAXE: NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine warned SpaceX founder Elon Musk that if he wants to continue working with the space agency he needs to clean up his act. Musk came under fire after he openly smoked marijuana during an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience in September.

“I will tell you that was not helpful, and that did not inspire confidence, and the leaders of these organizations need to take that as an example of what to do when you lead an organization that’s going to launch American astronauts,” Bridenstine told a reporter from The Atlantic during a meeting at NASA’s Washington D.C. headquarters. 

Bridenstine added that Musk understood his actions were wrong and has promised to be a better example.   more here

  1. NASA to Elon : “Stop Smoking Pot If You Want To Work With Us”.
    NASA to Taxpayers : “Keep Smoking Pot and continue to fund us”.
    Just stop funding NASA and kill 2 birds with one stone.

  2. Now this clown has a few hundred feet of tunnel burrowed under Los Angeles and then decided to stop the project. I guess he got bored.

  3. I’d tell NASA to fuck off. Show me one of your rockets that can land itself on a phuckin’ barge in the ocean after boosting a payload to orbit.

    Musk is ideas and money. Ain’t like he’s turning wrenches in the fuel dump at a launch pad. Screw them stiffs.

  5. From GB: “Now this clown has a few hundred feet of tunnel burrowed under Los Angeles and then decided to stop the project. I guess he got bored.”

    Nope, he got lawyered. Fell victim to a bunch of BANANAS. If he kept digging tunnels their kid’s toenails would fall off, their tinnitus would get worse, and their termite traps would quit working.

  6. To paraphrase Lincoln, if he can have a working car company, rocket company and mining concern while highn on weed, then perhaps we should give NASA whatever he is smoking.

    Exactly.
    How much is that technology worth to NASA. That was a pipe dream for them. I keep hearing people slam Musk, seems like a pretty smart guy to me.

  8. “Man, his unauthorized biography will be the bestest made for TV movie evah.”

    …he’s ALREADY a bit unstable, @Aaron Burr, so if he keeps toking down we may well end up with his unauthorized AUTObiography for that Hallmark Special TV show…

  10. NASA was spot on a while back, I do not know anything about Musk but he strikes me as one who is fortunate to hire smart people that can turn his pot-dreams into reality. He might possibly be really smart – I think he is really lucky – so far.

  11. Musk should post a picture of himself wearing a starched white short sleeve dress shirt with a thin black tie, a pocket protector full of pens and some horn rimmed glasses with tape on the bridge. One of those Casio calculator wristwatches.

    Am I smart enough for you dorks, yet?

  12. He’s a man who makes things. He’s a billionaire. He can do what he wants and NASA can piss off.
    Build your own damn rocket NASA. Oops, you can’t. So hitch a ride with our enemies or deal with a little eccentricity from your betters.
    Fire the top half of the Administration at NASA and promote the rest from within, and in five years you might just be ready for the next hundred years.

  13. This is NOT about smokin’ reefer or boozing it up, this is about Old World vs New World, maybe even a Brave New World.

    To those saying screw NASA? I agree. Maybe they need to rethink their standards.

    Not necessarily a big fan of Musks’ public antics, but to @JayPee’s and @Lowell points.

    @ Gin Blosson – who ‘bored’ who, or more like borrowed into?

    Oh @No Blushes – “…kill two birds with one stone(r).”

    Fixed for ya.

    The guy said he might DIE on Mars or when trying to get there.

    What is there not to wonder about that? He sounds like a voyager and well, I am a voyager… as well.

    The only thing Musk might DIE of is exhaustion… he said 40 hours is not good enough, he suggest 80 a week!
