Additional info on the anomaly: - Spacecraft was the DM-1 capsule planned for the inflight abort test - Anomaly likely occurred during a planned SuperDraco static fire, not during Draco testing which occurred earlier in the day

Friendly reminder about 's pad anomaly. Expect SpaceX / Elon to be pretty tight lipped on this for a while. This is a vehicle that's to carry humans for NASA and is a very serious thing. So let's have some sensitivity and patience as they investigate 🖤

"This accident should offer a clarifying moment for SpaceX and Musk that it really must get commercial crew right—and putting humans on a Falcon 9 rocket inside a Dragon spacecraft, raises the stakes. This is not easy. It is very hard."

Theory: SpaceX, and Elon in particular, has often stated that you can get a ton of data from a destructive test that you can't get when everything goes right. My belief is that Crew Dragon was tested to the point of destruction in order to get that data. (more)

Was There a catastrophic loss of Crew Dragon during 4/20 tests? No credible news agencies are reporting.

While today's SpaceX news is disappointing, their testing process caught some sort of design flaw before flying crew. That is what is most important. Crew Dragon will now be safer while flying crew than it would have been before today's event.
