Re: When can we see the apologies?

And perhaps we should ban all speculation until the NTSB publish their report - but that's against human nature. I think you're using hindsight. I've no experience of air accident investigation, but if one of my computers goes TU, the first question that occurs to me is "what have we just changed?" In this case, no-one has disputed that this was the first flight using a new propellant in a rocket motor that has had a number of issues (as have most such systems). I'm glad this now appears not to have been the cause, since fixing a mechanical failure ought to be possible more quickly than replacing the propulsion system.
