During the test, SpaceX blew up a Merlin engine of a new generation
Sunday testing the new engine company SpaceX have been unsuccessful. The Merlin engine of the new generation, which should become the basis for rockets, the Falcon 9 exploded.
Fortunately, no one was hurt, but now SpaceX has a difficult task to ascertain the causes of the explosion. Among other things, this automatically means that the new engines will go into operation later than scheduled.
The company has already launched an investigation. It also became known that the launch vehicle, the Falcon Heavy will first be launched in the current year. However, Elon Musk honestly warned that this is a much more complex structure than the Falcon 9, so the risk of failure when you first start available.
