Elon Musk and NASA chief Jim Bridenstine make amends after spat

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine toured SpaceX headquarters Thursday in California and joined CEO Elon Musk for a press conference on the state of the Crew Dragon mission. This follows a spat in September which saw Bridenstine take aim at SpaceX for delays in the development of the spacecraft. Musk, in return, called attention to NASA’s own Space Launch System delays.
