Pandemic – first hospitals, then Space-X – the economy

Due to the Covid pandemic, rocket builder Space-X could have issues with its launch plan. Space X president Gwynne Shotwell justified this at the Colorado Springs Space Symposium by the growing shortage of liquid oxygen, as reported by trade magazine Space News. It is increasingly needed for Covid patients in hospitals, but also serves as fuel. Shotwell stressed the need to make sure hospitals get the oxygen they need, “but if anyone has liquid oxygen left, they can email me.” Space-X hasn’t launched a rocket for two months, also because of production delays for the Starlink Internet satellites. A cargo flight to the ISS space station is scheduled for Saturday.
