The explosion of the Falcon 9 rocket occurred at Cape Canaveral, Florida ahead of its planned launch on September 3. The private space firm founded by Tesla founder Elon Musk has been on the forefront of making space travel available for private citizens.
According to Express, the theory has been further fuelled after SpaceX tweeted that there was an “anomaly” on the launch pad before the explosion. The term has been synonymous with UFOs and has also been the preferred term used by governments to address such matters.
Many of those who have seen the video pointed out that the so called “anomaly” could have been a bird or insect. While this is the most logical explanation, conspiracy theorists believe this is also the most convenient way to hide truth. They also think that the timing is too good for it to be just a coincidence.
Most of them took to social media suggesting that an alien strike was the reason behind the explosion. Many asking the Tesla CEO about what really happened on the launch pad.
Space X Sabotage By Aliens?
According to Gizmodo, Musk revealed that it was not an explosion that took out the rocket but a very fast fire. The Falcon 9 rocket was currently undergoing tests and was set to carry an artificial satellite into orbit.
The satellite to be utilized by Facebook to spot-beam broadband for its Internet.org free internet program. This would have enabled the social media giant to provide access to its website for those in faraway places.
This is not the first time a private space firm suffered setbacks. Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic also lost one of its space craft along with the test pilot.
Aliens foiling the efforts of multinational space firms seem to be a farfetched idea, and it probably is. For now, SpaceX must pick though the debris of its rocket to find out what really happened.
