SpaceX Explosion Hurts Bid To Compete With United Launch Alliance



Elon Musk and SpaceX couldn’t have had worst timing in regards to the company’s recent midair explosion on June 28th.

The malfunction comes at a time when the company is competing against the Colorado-based United Launch alliance, and might have put SpaceX behind the eight ball.

“There’s never a good time for a launch failure in the rocket business, butSpaceX’s spectacular mishap Sunday [June 28] — a midair explosion shortly after launch — comes at a crucial point in the company’s bid to compete against Centennial [Colorado]-based United Launch Alliance,” says Greg Avery of the Denver Business Journal.
