CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — SpaceX said a chemical leak was behind the anomaly that destroyed a Crew Dragon spacecraft in April, according to a news release.
The anomaly happened at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on April 20, sending large plumes of smoke into the sky.
No one was hurt.
Since then, SpaceX and NASA have been working with the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board and the Air Force to figure out what went wrong.
In a news release, the company said it was due to a leaking part.
