If it goes wrong, it’s my fault: Musk hours before NASA-SpaceX’s space mission

Elon Musk is feeling nervous hours before SpaceX’s historic mission to launch its first astronauts into space.

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has opened up about his nerves ahead of SpaceX’s first planned launch of people into orbit – and said the blame lay with him should anything go wrong.

Speaking with “CBS This Morning” hours ahead of Wednesday’s scheduled launch, Musk said: “I’m the chief engineer of this thing, so I’d just like to say that if it goes right, it’s a credit to the SpaceX-NASA team. If it goes wrong, it’s my fault.”

He added: “This is the culmination of a dream. This is a dream come true. In fact, it feels surreal. If you’d asked me when starting SpaceX if this would happen, I’d be like ‘1% chance, 0.1% chance.”
