Keith's note: This slow motion video from Astronomy Now shows that the Falcon 9 engines seem to be burning well after the explosion - and also that something shaped like a Dragon is seen exiting the cloud. Note: this is Internet rocket analysis and has nothing to do with what actually happened.
Falcon 9 experienced a problem shortly before first stage shutdown. Will provide more info as soon as we review the data.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk)
There was an overpressure event in the upper stage liquid oxygen tank. Data suggests counterintuitive cause.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk)
Keith's update: SpaceX is working toward a launch of the CRS-7 ISS Resupply mission aboard a Falcon 9 rocket this morning at 10:21 am EDT this morning. If all goes according to plan they will make another attempt to land the first stage on one of their autonomous drone barges.
