NASA to launch safety review at SpaceX following news of Elon Musk smoking pot

When NASA associated with Boeing and Spacex in order to fly the astronauts to ISS, the companies most probably expected that the government based space agency would always monitor the activities. However, what actually happened is the fact that NASA actually prompted a probe following the podcast with SpaceX CEO Elon Musk.

After it was revealed that Musk smoked pot with the podcast host Joe Rogan, NASA is now conducting a proper safety review for both the companies. While NASA refrained from confirming whether this sudden check had any association with Musk’s unprofessional behavior, the spokesperson for the company mentioned that this is just to ensure that the companies adhere to the workplace safety requirements as listed by NASA. This also includes a drug-free work environment to ensure zero compromise in terms of safety.

While NASA’s reaction to Musk’s recreational activity might seem a bit exaggerated reaction, it’s not the first company to do so. According to reports, the Air Force took a peak at Musk’s behavior. They stated that the use of weed or any similar illegal drugs is actually prohibited for anyone that holds a security clearance from the government. Musk’s appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast dated 6th September.

Cosmic Pretzel Discovered 700 Light-Years Away from Earth

An image of two new born stars in the 11 system being described as a cosmic pretzel made up of a network of filaments of gas and dust has been captured by Astronomers. 11 system is part of the Barnard 59 nebula being around 700 light-years away from the earth.

The study’s lead author Felipe Alves in a statement has said that they can see 2 compact sources who’s size are similar to the asteroid belt in the solar system. They have interpreted it as circumstellar disks around two young stars. The separation between them is of 28 times the distance between the Sun and the Earth.

Alves added that they are expecting 2 level accretion process to drive the dynamics of the binary system during its mass accretion phase and they need to study more young binary systems in detail to understand how multiple stars form better.

The 2 circumstellar disks are surrounded by a larger disk that has a total mass equal to that of 80 Jupiter. The study’s co-author and managing director at MPE Paola Caselli has stressed that this is a really important result as they have finally imaged the complex structure of young binary stars with their feeding filaments connecting them to the disk in which they were born.

This has provided them with important constraints for current models of star formation. The baby stars gain mass in two stages from the much larger disk, first is when the mass is transferred in twirling loops making the pretzel image and second is when the stars gain mass from the circumstellar disks.
