Explosion

SpaceX has no launches performed since september, when a Falcon 9 rocket on a launch pad explosion came.

The rocket was to explode during the filling up on the ruimtebasis Cape Canaveral in Florida. Research has shown that a pressure in the storage tank for liquid oxygen is not properly worked.

Because the pressure vessel was broken, there was oxygen between the lining and the shell of the tank. Probably, the problem was greater because of the cold helium was tank, through which the liquid is fixed.
