Here’s why SpaceX’s SN8 Produced that Green Flame & Crashed
Turns out they are related
I was honestly just trying to figure out why SN8 produced that bright green flame.
Turns out it’s the same reason it crashed.
In a tweet, Elon Musk explained:
“…Fuel header tank pressure was low during landing burn, causing touchdown velocity to be high & RUD, but we got all the data we needed!! Congrats SpaceX team hell yeah!!”
