No news here at all, just innuendo and ignorance. Pretty much par for the Atlantic.....

Should be noted that the super dracos hadn't visibly fired at the time of the explosion. Also, it's reported the capsule was going through an intense shaking at the time to simulate vibrations more extreme than the highest projected for a Falcon 9 launch. Could be another support strut not up to standard? Would be nice to know a bit more.

I like the NASAlingo. Anomaly equals explosion.

Where to they find these children to write such stupid articles?

Another possibility comes to mind. Chinese or Russian sabotage, or hell even European or a competitor. The world may like our status quo of not being able to have space missions. Time will tell, if they ever tell us the truth on anything anyway.

It's 50+ years of going to the moon and more than that of rocket design. Are we really considering this a "failed test" of a rocket in 2019?!!! REALLY!!!!!!?????

For all those asserting "testing, this is normal", the question is, are we becoming dumber a rocket building? HELLLO!!!! We did multiple stage, combination rockets over 50 years ago, yet today, we can't build a reliable rocket that doesn't blow up during a test?!

Any attempt by the private sector to get access to space will be SABOTAGED. There is a secret space program that has been going on for decades that uses advanced antigravitic technologies (like Electrogravitics for one) and if us mere mortals were allowed to get access to space the elite's "breakaway civilization" would be exposed. That is why they force us to use antiquated rocket technology to get into space and whenever we are close there is sabotage to set the whole project back again. The Serfs will not be given the keys to the kingdom.

next they will be saying that men can land on the moon!
