It was just a matter of time before this was posted publicly - this is why I was sure of things when I made my video.

What I see is an instantaneous event, it looks like a pressurized tank rupturing. A failure in a Draco thruster casing would be a lot smaller. So, I’m leaning towards another COPV failure.

Also, note that the origin of the blast is not centered on the thruster pods.

They need a new test article. And if hardware problems are identified they'll need to fix the Dragon 2's they've already built.

Not exactly something that should have been publicly posted. More like something that people will loose their job for. Love your work but can you plaese credit source material in your videos?

“They say” this was the final test of the day....is it possible that they were checking the limits beyond what would normally be expected when the failure / anomaly occurred?

Entirely possible, but they were not intending to destroy the capsule.

It’s the test stand. Or was, anyway.
