Demonstrating Determination

As I was reading the NY Times article regarding the third consecutive failure of a SpaceX launch, I couldn’t help but be inspired by the human resolve.

There’s 525 SpaceX employees that have now watched their last three missions, each seemingly taking years to coordinate, literally blow up in a matter of minutes. However, SpaceX refuses to be steered off-course and wallow in self-pity; rather, as soon as one launch fails, there onto the next launch (actually, it seems as though THREE future launches are still progressing forward).

While financial backing is one important aspect of keeping a business venture afloat – especially one such as SpaceX and privatized space travel – it’s altogether different and perhaps even more difficult to maintain employee engagement in a field where public failure can sometimes mean incremental, insider success.
