Turn on the computer and they're going for a launch this morning and you can't even see the darn thing in the fog.

Great big kaboom during the engine restart.  Bits and pieces raining down over the launch site.

Several live streamers cameras took hits. Know of at least one that was taken out.

Dang. 

NASA would have been frozen in a 5 year study to find out what went wrong.  Hope they  have no problem continuing.

One casualty confirmed.  A yucca plant in front of a camera was clobbered by flying debris.

Chamber pressure issues on Engine 2 during ascent. May or may not have a connection with the RUD during landing

Looks like engine 2 had issues on ascent & didn’t reach operating chamber pressure during landing burn, but, in theory, it wasn’t needed.

Something significant happened shortly after landing burn start. Should know what it was once we can examine the bits later today.

SN15 rolls to launch pad in a few days. It has hundreds of design improvements across structures, avionics/software & engine.

Hopefully, one of those improvements covers this problem. If not, then retrofit will add a few more days.

If anyone on South Padre Island, or in the Boca Chica area, Port Isabel, Laguna Vista, etc received an abrupt and startling wakeup this morning, this was probably it. Our radar was able to see #SN11 unfortunately explode in mid-air. #RGVwx #txwx
