Video of SpaceXs Crew Dragon Exploding.Failed test of Dragon's Escape Rockets. Shortly after this video leaked, NASA imposed a full media lockdown and threatening all employees that they will be fired if they post any videos/photos of this failor.

An internal memo to some workers at NASA's Kennedy Space Center is warning that employees could be fired for sharing images after a video of SpaceX's Crew Dragon explosion leaked online last week, according to a report from the Orlando Sentinel.

The memo, which was sent to NASA contractors under specific contract, also confirms that SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule did explode — something SpaceX and NASA have not publicly confirmed — during an April 20 abort system test, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

On April 20, the company tested the capsule's SuperDraco escape engines, which are designed to get astronauts out of harm's way in the event of a launch emergency, at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. A video of the failed engine test was leaked on Twitter, and suggests that the capsule exploded; other coverage showed large plumes of smoke in the skies above the Florida coast.

Apparently, Elon Musk only wants you to see the stuff that makes him look good.

Wow, fuck is right! Great leak! I was pretty impressed by the first booster stage, when it came back to earth, and landed itself in a circle on the recovery pad.

When they go corporate, with bill of dollars from investors, failure tents to be a soft spot.

Exactly right, 50 years ago it would have been because they didn't want America to suffer international ridicule if the Russians found out. Today it's probably more so the investors losing faith that is the concern.

Is he really? Well how many billions have you accumulated in your lifetime? How many spaceships have you launched lately? Oh and let me guess, you're dating Amber Heard.

LMAO!! Spot on. I would be glad to have the money he made from his failures alone. More than I'll make in my lifetime and I make good money.
