BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Following Musk’s stunt, NASA looking into safety, waiting to exhale

Following Musk’s stunt, NASA looking into safety, waiting to exhale

NASA says it plans to explore extensively workplace safety at two of its major commercial partners, SpaceX and Boeing, after SpaceX CEO Elon Musk smoked marijuana in September on a podcast recorded in California, where the drug is legal, according to The Washington Post.

Both companies are now developing spacecraft to take the NASA’s astronauts to and from the International Space Station, the newspaper reported.

The reviews are expected to take months and will require hundreds of interviews, the Post reported. NASA did not elaborate whether the inquiries will delay the first launches of the companies’ vehicles, which are slated for 2019.

“NASA will be conducting a cultural assessment study in coordination with our commercial partners to ensure the companies are meeting NASA’s requirements for workplace safety, including the adherence to a drug-free environment,” a NASA spokesperson said in a statement to the news site The Verge. “We fully expect our commercial partners to meet all workplace safety requirements in the execution of our missions and the services they provide the American people. As always, NASA will ensure they do so.”

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told the Post that the reviews will help NASA ensure that its astronauts will be as safe as possible.
