SpaceX customer scrambling for answers in explosion aftermath

The explosion of a rocket that rocked Florida’s Space Coast and destroyed a satellite has the Israeli company that owned the satellite trying to figure out what happened and considering ways to recover the money it lost.

The satellite had been scheduled to launch into space early Saturday morning.

The satellite was to help Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg provide Internet to poorly connected areas of sub-Saharan Africa.

A statement from Spacecom said that it has been working on its next steps since the SpaceX rocket exploded on a Florida launch pad at 9:07 a.m. Thursday morning.
