there's little doubt it was something to do with the engines - it usually is with rockets because that's where all the actin is.

But apart from that....what? the engines aer old? Yeah - ":so what?" remains my point - they do not get reused, so they are old and also brand new - and tested and refurbished to account for any aging.

So the report -is- in, and contrary to your remark "I'm pretty sure you have no idea what you are talking bout"

news.yahoo.com...

NASA's independent review team said the initial fire was caused by friction from rubbing parts in a liquid oxygen turbopump. The pump was in one of the old Russian-built engines of Orbital Sciences Corp.'s unmanned Antares rocket.
