It’s been over a week since an anomaly triggered the engine failure of a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule during testing.
Few details have been disclosed, and it’s not yet clear how the incident might delay NASA’s ability to deliver astronauts to the ISS.
Last Thursday, a NASA safety panel remained tight-lipped, saying an investigation is now underway.
We also don’t know if any toxic fumes were released into the environment (seems likely), or if the incident will affect NASA’s Commercial Crew Program (also likely).
BREAKING: SpaceX Crew Dragon suffered an anomaly during test fire today, according to 45th Space Wing.
All we can really be certain of, and as stated in a SpaceX press release issued shortly after the 20 April incident, is that an “anomaly” occurred.
