SpaceX Responds To Forbes

SpaceX Responds To Forbes Contributor Loren Thompson, Forbes

"Contributor Loren Thompson's recent post on Forbes' Business in the Beltway blog ("What NASA Risks By Betting On Elon Musk's SpaceX", May 23, 2011) is the latest example of his transparent agenda to discredit commercial space providers that may provide significant competition to the big defense contractors that are his clients and benefactors. Mr. Thompson is a paid consultant for Lockheed Martin Corporation, which competes with SpaceX in various space ventures. He is also the chief operating officer of the non-profit Lexington Institute, a think tank often referred to as the "defense industry's pay-to-play ad agency," financed by and an advocate for the very defense companies most threatened by SpaceX's new approach to the launch business."
