Crew Dragon capsules explosion

As reported before, Crew Dragon was experiencing an anomaly a few weeks ago. Today, SpaceX finally acknowledges the explosion occurred during static wire testing that destroying Crew Dragon’s capsules.

SpaceX Vice President, Hans Koeningsmann, assure that the explosion was probably related to the ignition of Crew Dragon’s SuperDraco engine, a part of The Crew Dragon capsule, which is a part of the spacecraft’s emergency escape system.

Crew Dragon was scheduled to be SpaceX’s first spacecraft to transport human passengers. Earlier, SpaceX managed to send Crew Dragon for tests to the International Space Station (ISS) without any significant problem.

The private space agency Musk has a second stage demo that has included humans in it. Because of the explosion, they decide to postpone the demo.

The explosion occurred on April 20th during a series of engine tests in Cape Canaveral, Florida. The incident was said to have occurred during the final stages of testing.

During the explosion, people could really see thick clumps of smoke rising into the Florida sky. This event sparked concern among witnesses because the explosion was so large that many thought it was a security problem.

SpaceX itself does not provide any initial statements and insist that there was an anomaly in the test. Musk himself, who is known for his vocal statement, did not give any comments after the explosion.
