Who stands to gain from SpaceX failures? Who stands to gain from this specific failure? With the amount of money involved to assume corruption is not involved is very naive, this is a fact of who we are, there IS forces involved both ways i am sure. For those about to gain it is either on Musks own hands or someone tipped the scale. Now given the cat, the isotope and all that.. Put in on top of what we know about humans and loads of money what does that equal? It equals that EVERY time one of these things blow up you better investigate through and through that no faulplay was involved. And have countermeasures in place as well.
