SpaceX CEO Elon Musk took to Twitter to respond to Russian space agency Roscosmos head Dmitry Rogozin’s threat that Russia would stop providing rocket engines to the US, as Rogozin also suggested that from now on the US would need ‘their broomsticks’ to get into space.
Elon Musk gаve a befitting reply as he posted a video of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket launching another 47 Starlink satellites into orbit and tweeted ‘American Broomstick’, along with a screenshot of comments made by Dmitry Rogozin.
Russian space agency Roscosmos’ head is also against Musk helping out and providing internet services to many Ukrainians by sending Starlink terminals into the war zone. Elon Musk made a sarcastic response to that in his tweet: ‘Ukraine civilian Internet was experiencing strange outages – bad weather perhaps? – so SpaceX is helping fix it’. Musk also warned Ukrainians to use Starlink networks ‘with caution’ due to the high probability of being targeted.
