Earlier today a SpaceX rocket test resulted in the explosion of the test vehicle, a three-engine version of the company’s Falcon 9 rocket. This particular rocket already had a successful test (the Falcon 9 is a reusable design). No injuries were reported, and the rocket did not carry a commercial payload.
As others have explained, a perfect test program suggests a program that is not pushing the boundaries of technology far enough. But SpaceX has other programs running, several launches scheduled, and is pursuing action against the government to gain entree into the competition for important launch contracts. It would not surprise me to see those in competition with SpaceX to use this test failure as ammunition against the company.
