CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - It will soon be easier for start-up companies to blast off from the Space Coast.
The U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Elaine Chao, visited the Kennedy Space Center on Wednesday. While there, she said that it will become eaiser and faster to do space business. She also said that safety will still be a top priority, even after the SpaceX crew capsule exploded last weekend.
"While frankly, you want to discover these types of problems now, not when you have lives at risk. But, this incident illustrates why equipment and systems are subjected to rigorous testing," Chao said.
Chao went on to say that with launches happening more often, it is time for the government ot keep up with the times and streamline the process.
