Questions Arise On Implications Of SpaceX Pad Explosion

As SpaceX begins investigating the causes of the Sept. 1 accident that destroyed a Falcon 9 and its payload, questions are mounting over the near- and far-term implications of the failure for the launch company, its commercial customers, NASA and the U.S. Air Force.
