Today the Atlantic Council held its Captains of Industry discussion which featured Gwynne Shotwell, President and COO of SpaceX. This is the recording of the event.
The discussion focused on the future of American space launch, an issue of critical and timely importance. Last month, Russia threatened to cut-off U.S. supply of the RD-180 engine, revealing just how problematic U.S. reliance on these Russian engines really is. SpaceX offers a wholly-American rocket with an outstanding record of reliability and mission success.
