Musk: Something extremely bogus is going on
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – With less than 48 hours before SpaceX attempts to make history again, SpaceX founder Elon Musk took to Twitter early Friday to voice his displeasure and bizarre COVID-19 testing experience that he called ‘extremely bogus’.
“Something extremely bogus is going on,” said Musk on Twitter. “(I) was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back negative, two came back positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid antigen test from BD.”
The United States leads the world in COVID-19 testing with over 163,454,705 tests taken in 2020.
Of those tested for coronavirus, 10,873,936 have tested positive.
In total, there have been 248,585 people that have died related to COVID-19.
SPACEX LAUNCH – SATURDAY, NOV. 14
Musk and his SpaceX team will have center stage on Saturday as SpaceX will launch a Falcon 9 rocket with four astronauts inside a Crew-Dragon spacecraft, bound for the International Space Station from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center.
The launch is historic as it will be the most astronauts launched from American soil since the Shuttle days when space shuttle Atlantis’ STS-135 mission launched in 2011 from Florida’s Space Coast.
The launch comes months after the first SpaceX Crew mission launched astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley in May 2020.
Saturday’s launch will feature NASA astronauts Mike Hopkins, Victor Glover, and Shannon Walker, and astronaut Soichi Noguchi of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA).
The crew are scheduled to launch at 7:49 p.m. EST on Saturday, Nov. 14, from Launch Complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Center.
Coverage of the launch can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
