SpaceX’s Elon Musk says he’s tested positive for COVID-19 on eve of NASA astronaut launch

With SpaceX on the eve of launching four astronauts to the International Space Station for NASA in a historic flight, CEO Elon Musk has announced that he has received mixed results from recent tests for the novel coronavirus..

Musk made the announcement on Twitter early today (Nov. 13). It’s not yet clear what, if anything, those results might mean for SpaceX’s Crew-1 launch with NASA, currently scheduled to lift off from the agency’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida tomorrow night at 7:49 p.m. EST (0049 GMT on Nov. 15). NASA has been cautious about crew health since long before COVID-19 burst on the scene and has directed agency employees to work remotely as much as possible to slow the disease’s spread.
