Defense News reports that “if SpaceX CEO Elon Musk had his way, the US Air Force would certify his company for national security launches this minute — and he made his frustrations clear with the service’s long process of certifying his Falcon 9 rocket.”  

“Speaking to press at an event in Washington meant to showcase SpaceX’s Dragon manned capsule, Musk alternated between disbelief and naked frustration when discussing the Air Force’s certification process.  

“’We just think the law of the land is competition,’ Musk said. ‘There’s no legitimate reason why there shouldn’t be competition. So that should just happen.”
