SpaceX Explosion a Blow to Aerospace Industry

6 September 2016
A New York Times report focused on the anticipated consequences of last week’s SpaceX Falcon 9 explosion.  The article notes that the mishap extends “far beyond the losses on the launchpad,” as satellite-based Internet services will be “delayed and put in doubt,” Israel’s ability to market its satellite operator is now “imperiled,” and NASA now anticipates disruptions to future ISS delivery schedules.  The article explains that what will be crucial for SpaceX moving forward is “how quickly it can satisfy federal investigators, rebuild the damaged launchpad at Cape Canaveral and resume sending satellites into space.”(Image Credit: Associated Press–©)
