Elon Musk: NASA is free to share SpaceX IP with 'anyone it wants'

Elon Musk opens SpaceX IP to NASA, wants them to share it with 'anyone it wants'

Elon Musk is probably the most passionate man on this planet when it comes to traversing the stars, with the SpaceX and Tesla Motors founder having some interesting words to say during a recent event at the SpaceX HQ.


Musk was joined by NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine at the SpaceX HQ in Hawthrone today, with Musk updating the world on the commercial crew launch program that SpaceX is collaborating with NASA on. During the chat, Musk talked about the state of the program, and what is coming next.

There was a Q&A session after the event, where Musk said that what the SpaceX team learned from the Crew Dragon parachute development program is open to the world -- making it available to anyone who wants it. Musk said that literally any of SpaceX's own IP is open to NASA and can feed it out as they want.

Musk said: "I've been very very clear with Jim that any SpaceX data should not be considered proprietary. It can be used by any of our competitors (...) No charge. I want to be clear: NASA can share all of our IP with anyone that NASA wants. There is IP that it is in the inters of the nation that we cannot be sharing with people, or with countries that would not have our interest at heart".
