Elon Musk has a “Keep out zone” for a rocket launch. The Tesla CEO has to call off a SpaceX launch because an aircraft enters the restricted zone a few seconds before the launch.
After investigation it was found that it was a private helicopter.
Elon updated on Twitter:
Unfortunately, launch is called off for today, as an aircraft entered the “keep out zone”, which is unreasonably gigantic.
There is simply no way that humanity can become a spacefaring civilization without major regulatory reform. The current regulatory system is broken.
