  • Elon Musk's SpaceX to lay off 10 per cent of workforce

Some employees of the McGregor test facility were instructed to go home at 4 p.m. Friday and not to return, KWTX has learned.

The company cited the need to be leaner to keep delivering for customers and develop spacecraft and space-based internet.

"Either of these developments, even when attempted separately, have bankrupted other organisations". "This means we must part ways with some talented and hardworking members of our team".

"We are grateful for everything they have accomplished and their commitment to SpaceX's mission", the company continued.

The company said it will "part ways" with some of its employees as it faces "extraordinarily hard challenges ahead".

SpaceX launched its first rocket of 2019 early Friday.

The first unpiloted test flight of the Crew Dragon capsule is planned for next month with the first flight carrying astronauts tentatively targeted for mid-June.

Last summer, the company fired some senior managers at the company's Redmond, Washington, office, because of disagreements over the pacing of the development and testing of its Starlink satellite programme.

The Starship vehicle was formerly known as the Big Falcon Rocket (BFR), a fully reusable vehicle created to take humans and supplies to Mars and also to dramatically cut travel time within Earth. In November 2018, Musk announced that from now BFR will be called Starship. The company's website says the workforce numbers "6,000+". The company also reportedly plans to replace their current Falcon and Falcon Heavy rockets with this starship model in the near future, making the success of the hopper extremely important to the company.

Analysts estimate SpaceX's value at more than $30 billion.
