They must have paid that man a king's ransom.

What does a self-piloting space boner need a pilot for?

The flying cock missile does not need a pilot. It knows it's way home.

Yeah, there's gonna be an IP theft lawsuit  against this guy.  While he needed a job, taking one with a direct competitor was just asking for trouble.  Surprised VG didn't have a non-compete contract with their chief test pilot!

I'll bet you a beer that their non-compete didn't cover termination as thoroughly as voluntary resignation.

I'd be favor of a law restricting NDAs. In particular, if you are involuntary removed it should be null and void with very few exceptions of extreme misconduct that will have to be documented. No NDAs without a guarantee of employment, salary, and benefits.  Also they should not be allowed at all for lower-level employees.
