SpaceX founder and chief Elon Musk said Friday he was unsure why one of the company's Falcon rockets burst into flames on its Florida launch pad last week, destroying both the rocket and an Israeli communications satellite it was due to lift into orbit.A massive fireball enveloped the rocket on Sept. 1 as it was being fueled for a routine test of its first stage.The rocket's nine engines had not yet ignited for a test firing when a fireball engulfed the upper stage. The rocket that was destroyed was the second of 29 Falcon 9 rockets to fail. It took SpaceX about three weeks to identify the likely cause of its previous accident, which occurred on June 28, 2015 .
