Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX has been trying to get a bigger share of the national security launch business. He has just started a Tweeter war against its main competitors, accusing them of recruiting a high ranking Air Force officer in return for winning a big contract without any competition. He posted a series of tweets to bring attention to the hiring issue. He also called for an investigation into the matter.
The volley was aimed at Aerojet Rocketdyne, a unit of GenCorp Inc. Rocketdyne. This company supplies rocket engines to United Launch Alliances. Musk didn’t offer any evidence to back up his accusations on the company.
