Conspiracies Abound on Falcon 9 Fireplosion
By now, you’ve probably heard the conspiracy theories about the fire and explosion (fireplosion?) that destroyed a Falcon 9 rocket and destroyed the Amos-6 spacecraft.
Was the rocket taken out by a drone? An alien UFO? An U.S. government determined to keep Spacecom out of the hands of a Chinese conglomerate? A bird pooping on the equipment? Or all of the above?
While the investigation continues and the speculation rages over the cause, there’s been one possibility that has been ignored completely….
Here’s the rocket being fueled….
Looks pretty normal, huh? But, take a look at this zoomed in closeup of the fueling process….
And a short time later…
I think this pretty much wraps up the investigation, don’t you think?

If Gary Seven is still hanging around trying to get his ST spinoff show, will someone tell him to go home?
I would like to meet his ‘cat’ before he leaves, however… 🙂
I don’t want to say that it was aliens…but IT WAS ALIENS!
No–that isn’t Gary Seven. It’s ULA’s fixer, Ray Donovan. He’s in trouble with the Russians–and they’ll leave him alone if he can splash the Falcon so as to sell more RD-180s
The first reference to Gary Seven wrt to this anomaly I’ve found so far was on 9/4 over at NSF: http://forum.nasaspacefligh…
I don’t know if Doug was inspired from that or came up with the idea independently.
IIRC he actually fixed the rocket and prevented the “fireplosion” from happening.
At this point, the Chinese are likely to get Spacecom for a discount.
Poor cat. Hair ball, er fire ball.
As a camera operator, that fast, fuzzy speck some are attributing to a drone that darts across the frames looks more like a bug close to the camera. Close to the camera being out of focus. Also, being close to the camera, does not have to fly fast to look fast.
The Cape has LOTS of bugs. Pure coincidence on the timing.
Nah. Gary Seven & cat are fine. Fuzzy speck was mobile transporter device. Beamed both of them back to the office moments before the fire started.
Miss Lincoln hardly noticed that were gone.
But thats not nearly as much fun or generates as much click bait.
It was a NASA developed supersonic pigeon that shot a laser from its beak.
Wake up sheeple! etcetera, etcetera…….
At one point the wasps that always fly in front of the launch cameras had a Facebook page 🙂 not sure if they still do
Dood! I looked at the headline and thought … Gary 7, and ISIS the pussy … cat ! NICE!
I think it was that damned Philae lander. Just where was it when it was “missing”? And now suddenly it shows up! Hmmm.
Yes I’ve always been dubious of his innocent little boy explorer shtick..it all makes perfect sense now!.
It was clearly Mossad trying to thwart the sale of a prized Israeli aerospace company to the Chinese.
I’m standing by the “Bird pooping on equipment” myself.
I noticed the “drone” flying by right away, but I quit worrying about it when it flapped its wings…
