NASA cannot even do what it did in the 1960s.
Anomaly ... Sounds of Star Trek.
Any Muslims working for them?

As long as no one is hurt, 'sfun when stuff goes kaboom.
SpaceX's Crew Dragon Capsule Destroyed In Engine Test | Scott Manley
Rumors say there is nothing left of the capsule except for the nosecone. This is the same capsule that went to the space station a bit more than a month ago. The engines on the capsule were being tested before a launch in June that would have tested an abort.
What about Ripley?
The Klingons were the Muslims.
Nominal ... Nominal ... Not nominal
NASA had its share of failures in the 60s. One fatally.
NASAs anomaly, was Apollo 1, that fire killed three men. Sending objects into space is technically demanding and technologically complex. The wonder is not that there are accidents, but that there are so few accidents.
Been rough week for SPACE X - first the recovered booster on the barge toppled over when heavy sea caused one of the landing legs collapsed
Now this - doing a abort test when fire in one of the thrusters
drivel...... the anomaly is the result of ongoing progress.
