SpaceX Investigating Cause of Falcon 9 Rocket Explosion

SpaceX is investigating why the company's Falcon 9 rocket exploded during a prelaunch test yesterday (Sept. 1), but it's unclear when there will be any definitive answers.

The powerful explosion destroyed both the two-stage Falcon 9 and the Amos-6 communications satellite, which the rocket was scheduled to launch from Florida's Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Saturday (Sept. 3). Nobody was injured, SpaceX representatives said.
