LOTS of reports that the CHP has stated there is one fatality, one serious injury.

CNN is reporting one pilot confirmed dead and another with major injuries...

Sad.

Confirmed by local news in the area: one dead, one major injury.

This is a very sad day for Private Spaceflight, for these pilot's families, and for all others involved.

I'll be praying for this entire situation.

I have to head to class now, it looks like there won't be many more developments for the time being.

I really hope the injured pilot pulls through.

So, what are the odds of two space programs having launch issues. Versus sabotage either foreign or domestic rogue elements? Does any one has a chronology of recent launches, and simular issues or not.

Maybe some corporate black ops are working in shadows.
Then it can always be coincidence and faulty hardware.

Would you fly on a ship made of 20,000 (guess) parts all built by the lowest bidder?

That's what I was just thinking too...

Not a good week for the space community.

Um...yeah did when I was Active Duty Army. Everything was lowest bidder.

This craft was private built though, not entirely different but some factors are varied.

Hopefully more will be reported as recovery crew investigate accident.

Oh for crying out loud. The odds? They're pretty good. As it turns out, in case you never looked into space travel at all, riding on what is essentially a giant controlled explosion is not by any sense of the word "routine" or "safe." There are a MILLION things that can and will go wrong if ANYTHING is even a fraction off. Launching rockets is dangerous and deadly. You don't need a conspiracy for either of those things...

THis is terrible news, Must of been at a very high altitude, so to parachute would be last resort, prior to loss of aircraft. Getting to space is a dangerous endevour, and these pilots and everyone involved know this. My heart goes out to the pilots and I pray the one pilot in critical condition pulls through.

I know about the Murphy factor.
Was just saying, compared to other controlled explosions these recent events seems untimely.

But again, it could all be explained as overlooked hardware failure.

I want to wait for investigation reports, before speculating too much.
It just seems too odd for back to back failures...

Ha. Lowest bidder. Maybe so but the government is paying high dollar. Companies working for the government are not hurting for profit.

In this case though it is private investment, isn't it.

they just changed the fuel mixture from plastic to rubber or something to that effect, this new fuel mixture and explosion straight after ignition is a big red flag for me on correlation

They had engine issues related to the fuel on the last test flight. They switched to a new fuel that they had never used before in flight. In all honesty I'm not surprised they had a problem. I am surprised it didn't show up on the ground tests.
