The space company of Elon Musk SpaceX will reduce its workforce by about 10% of the more than 6,000 employees of the company.
The company said it will "separate" with some of its employees, citing "extraordinarily difficult challenges".
"To continue to provide our customers with success in the development of interplanetary spacecraft and a global space network, SpaceX must become a leaner company." One of these developments, even if attempted separately, has sent other organizations in bankruptcy, "a spokesman said in an e-mail.
In June, Elon Musk fired at least seven people in the senior management team running a SpaceX satellite launch project, reported in November. The redundancies were related to disagreements about the pace at which the team was developing and testing its Starlink satellites.
SpaceX's Starlink program is competing with OneWeb and Canada's Telesat to be the first to introduce a new satellite-based Internet service to the market.
The change of management involved Musk who brought new managers from the SpaceX headquarters in California to replace some of the managers who fired in Seattle.
Last month, SpaceX launched its first space mission for national security in the United States, when a SpaceX space missile carrying a US military navigation satellite exploded from Cape Canaveral in Florida.
In December, the Wall Street Journal reported that SpaceX raised $ 500 million, bringing its valuation to $ 30.5 billion (£ 23.7 billion).
The California-based company had already outlined plans for a trip to Mars in 2022, followed by a manned mission to the Red Planet by 2024.
Another company of Elon Musk , the automaker Tesla Inc., said in A June cut 9% of its workforce by removing several thousand jobs across the company in cost reduction measures.
