SpaceX determined the probable cause of the recent rocket explosion before the launch


The company also revealed in a statement that “substantial areas of the pad” were damaged. The good news ? The control systems for the pad are in good condition and the nearby Falcon Support Building which houses the Falcon 9s prior to launch  wasn’t affected. The tanks that store the super-chilled oxygen for the rockets and the tanks that hold the kerosene fuel are also intact. SpaceX expects lo launch a new rocket in November but from another launch pad. They have one at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California  and another at Launch Complex 39A in Cape Canaveral. In the next couple of years the company is supposed to start transporting astronauts to and from the International Space Station.
