SpaceX is the private rocket company of billionaire high-tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, who is also the chief executive officer of Tesla Inc. is. “During a planned parachute test today, the test item that hung under the helicopter became unstable,” said a statement quoted by the CNBC reporter.

The Crew Dragon space taxi is being developed alongside the Boeing Co’s Starliner capsule, both of which have recently experienced cost overruns and delays in the space program. NASA and SpaceX are working to determine the test plan leading up to the Crew Dragon’s second “demonstration mission,” the statement said.

SpaceX did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment.
