"Falcon 9 experienced a double engine failure in the first stage and that the entire stage blew up just after the first stage separated.”
Funny that I did not seen that in live feed of any F9 launch. And I watched them multiple times. Must be this SpaceX kool aid.

Like in Tunisia, Egypt and most dramatically Libya. Other examples seem to be destined to failure.
