Investigation Board Formed For SpaceX Engine Failure
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — NASA and SpaceX announce that they have jointly formed a CRS-1 Post-Flight Investigation Board.
SpaceX says that this board will methodically analyze all data in an effort to understand what occurred to engine 1 during liftoff of the CRS-1 mission on Sunday, October 7, 2012.
While Falcon 9 was designed for engine out capability and the Dragon spacecraft has successfully arrived at the space station, SpaceX says it is committed to a comprehensive examination and analysis of all launch data, with the goal of understanding what happened and how to correct it prior to future flights.
