SpaceX Eager To Start Operations Soon After Falcon 9 Explosion
A few weeks back SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket exploded. An investigation into the explosion has currently derailed the SpaceX program. Even so, the SpaceX program is determined to resume its flights by this November.
SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell said that the program would resume flights this November, as Business Insider reports. She said during the September 13 satellite industry conference in Paris that the company is anticipating flights back by November. However, some are skeptical if November might be a good target time to resume.
"It is hard to see how SpaceX could fly Falcon 9 by November, especially since they have [publicly] stated that they don't have a root cause established," Wayne Hall said. He is a former NASA space shuttle director and an engineer as well as a rocket accident investigator. Hall added that it took him three months just to establish a root cause for the last accident he investigated and then several more months to have corrective plans in place.
For its part, SpaceX has said that they would identify and resolve the incident well before launch time.The next launch could be done either at Pad 39A at Kennedy Space Center or else at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, as the Daily Caller says in its report.
The cause of the explosion is being speculated to either be a fuel leak a problem with the rocket staging. Its true cause would be known once the investigation on Falcon 9 explosion has ended. Finding its cause and correcting is critical as clients would want to know if it's safe to have their cargo fly with SpaceX. Clients who aren't satisfied might look to rivals to deliver their cargo.
SpaceX is said to still have nine more launches scheduled for the year and cannot afford to have further delays in its schedule. If launches are delayed the company could have financial issues, something it cannot afford right now.
