The cause of the accident of the Falcon 9 rocket on 1 September on the launch pad at the spaceport at Cape Canaveral on 1 September was a crack in the flow system gels the tank with liquid oxygen for the second stage of the rocket, the company said SpaceX.
It is noted that the substance serves to maintain the pressure in the tank. According to the head of SpaceX Elon musk, the accident was the most serious setback for the entire 14-year history of the company.
Booster Falcon 9 exploded on 1 September at the launch complex at Cape Canaveral during pre-launch processing. The launch was scheduled for September 3.
