Unconfirmed reports say there’s been an explosion on SpaceX’s Cape Canaveral launch complex. Apparently, a Falcon 9 rocket is in flames, and several images of a smoke plume rising above the complex suggest that something is very wrong.
SpaceX was due to launch an Amos 6 communications satellite for Spacecom of Israel on a Falcon 9 on Saturday. There’s no word of whether that Falcon 9 rocket was involved or will be impacted. We’re reaching out to SpaceX to confirm and will update this post when we hear back.
