The Verge: How the Falcon 9 explosion may change SpaceX’s launch schedule
While it’s still too early to know all the consequences of this morning’s SpaceX explosion, one thing is almost certain: the company’s future launches are likely to be delayed.
We don’t know what the root cause of the accident was, however, or how badly the rocket’s launch pad was damaged. Those are what will determine how long SpaceX is grounded from spaceflight — and whether the company’s business will suffer.

We believe public officials should establish an even playing field for all businesses to compete in the marketplace, not just those special interests who line their pockets.
