SpaceX seeks help in finding cause of rocket explosion

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk is seeking help in finding out what caused a rocket to ignite last week at Cape Canaveral.

The Falcon 9 exploded on a launch pad Thursday during testing.

The sound from the explosion was heard miles away, and video showed the rocket becoming a massive fireball.

Musk made a series of tweets Friday morning, asking for support from NASA and soliciting video, audio or photos from anyone who captured the incident on camera.
