SpaceX and Nasa called it an anomaly - the PR flacks were working overtime that day.

A leaked video shows the Crew Dragon exploding like a Ford Pinto in the cargo hold of a Boeing 737 Max

Video - [www.youtube.com]

That appeared to be outdoors rather than in a cargo hold.

This was a couple weeks ago...

They already have given a press release discussing the parts of the system they are confident it WASN'T... The COPV's, and the SuperDraco thruster instrumentation showed no problems THERE. Well, until everything else was coming unglued.

Needless to say, the first manned flight of Dragon 2 has been "delayed".

Come on, how hard can it be? It’s not rocket science, after all...




Oh.

This is from several weeks ago, rather old news by now. Part of the reason SpaceX had to land the booster from their next launch off shore was because the COPVs survived the explosion intact. They were still pressurized with hypergolic fuels and the area was contaminated with hypergolics as well from the explosion. How do you safe a COPV full of toxic fuel that has been compromised by exposure to massive explosion and heat?

At any rate, it exploded during testing and is precisely the reason why they were testing. Better to blow up on the ground connected to sensors and cameras with no one on board and learn about a problem now instead of months from now while astronauts are trying to land.

Triple points for cultural references.

Though you could have added an e-cig in the glove compartment and a hover board in the backseat.
