I know it’s the companies fairly large, but do you happen to know Jeff Taylor?
He is an electrical engineer for Space X.
He also owns a drone company and based the name of his company based off Space X’s first space capsule launch, which is Event 38, as in the 38th thing to go wrong.
The private spaceflight company hoped to launch the advanced GPS III SV01 satellite on a Falcon 9 rocket at 9:03 a.m. EST (1403 GMT) after two days of delays due to a sensor issue on the booster. But foul weather, including thunderstorms, rain and potentially even hail, made a launch attempt untenable. It came as no surprise to SpaceX: Weather forecasts put the chances of good launch conditions today at a meager 20 percent. SpaceX is now aiming to launch the GPS III satellite on Saturday (Dec. 22), with liftoff scheduled for 8:55 a.m. EST (1355 GMT).
