    SpaceX, NASA tight-lipped on cause of crew capsule incident



    Washington (AFP) April 25, 2019
    NASA and SpaceX remained tight-lipped Thursday about what caused a mysterious but apparently serious incident last weekend during engine tests on the Crew Dragon capsule designed to carry US astronauts to the International Space Station (ISS) later this year. SpaceX said that an "anomaly" had occurred during Saturday's ground tests at Cape Canaveral in Florida. A photo on the Florida Today website showed large amounts of smoke pouring out of the test site, prompting speculation about a possible ... read more
