Falcon 9 rocket

SpaceX close to figuring out rocket failure during launch

The unmanned Falcon 9 rocket carrying cargo for the International Space Station had just lifted off on June 28 when the accident occurred.

Speaking Tuesday at a conference in Boston, SpaceX founder Elon Musk said the trouble appeared to be in the upper stage, with an over-pressurization of the liquid oxygen tank. Nevertheless, the California-based company is putting ttogether what he calls a "super-detailed" timeline, millisecond by millisecond.
