According to Florida Today, large plumes of smoke were seen emanating from the area, indicating something had gone wrong. There were no injuries caused by the anomaly, which is now under control, according to officials with the 45th Space Wing based at the Air Force station.
"Earlier today, SpaceX conducted a series of engine tests on a Crew Dragon test vehicle on our test stand at Landing Zone 1 in Cape Canaveral, Florida," a company spokesperson told Space.com in a statement. "The initial tests completed successfully but the final test resulted in an anomaly on the test stand."
So here's the question, Can an anomaly be truly under control if we don't even know what it is or what caused it?
Heck for all we know, it could have been a hooker smoking a cigarette on the crew gantry waiting to find out if they could give her a lift to the International Space Station.
