  SpaceX rocket explodes in pre-launch testingSep 01, 2016 10:49 PM PDT | url
 
Added 1 new A* page:SpaceX's ambitious commercial space endeavor hit another hitch today when their latest rocket exploded during pre-launch testing at Cape Canaveral. The pad had been cleared for the test fire so nobody was hurt, but the rocket's satellite cargo was destroyed. SpaceX said "The anomaly originated around the upper stage oxygen tanks and occurred during propellant loading of the vehicle." Hopefully they'll figure out what went wrong so it won't happen again! More details, with photos and videos, are in the BBC article.
