SpaceX turned to fast-igniting fuel for its capsule escape system. That could be part of the accident probe
SpaceX wanted a launch escape system that could swiftly propel astronauts away from danger. For that, it turned to a propellant combination that instantly ignites.
The anomaly happened during an uncrewed test fire of the Crew Dragon’s SuperDraco engines at Florida’s Cape Canaveral. The engines power the capsule’s launch abort system.
