SpaceX Falcon 9 Fails to Launch

提交時間:
 
I'm a massive nerd, and I watched the last half hour of this failed launch on spaceflight.com or some nerdy website, and I think there was a glitch around the T-10 checklist. Some guy said something like "I have no engines," but they just rolled on. And they failed. I hope somebody captured the video because I think this launch was screwed from the gitgo.

I should add that they counted down from ten, and the guy they had doing commentary said, "Three, two, one...Liftoff!" ...But It didn't lift off. This is a facial omelette, if you ask me.

Better abort and figure out what was wrong than launch a rocket with errors you know of. Would you get on a plane you knew had an issue and nobody knew why? I'm glad the rocket knew what to do when the error happened and shutdown.

Update on SpaceX COTS 2 Test Launch
May 19, 2012

Today’s COTS 2 Demonstration launch was aborted half a second before liftoff when the flight computer detected slightly high pressure in the engine 5 combustion chamber. We have discovered root cause and repairs are underway.

During rigorous inspections of the engine, SpaceX engineers discovered a faulty check valve on the Merlin engine. We are now in the process of replacing the failed valve. Those repairs should be complete tonight. We will continue to review data on Sunday. If things look good, we will be ready to attempt to launch on Tuesday, May 22nd at 3:44 AM Eastern.

The next launch attempt will be webcast live at www.spacex.com.
