SpaceX investigating possible sabotage of Falcon 9 rocket

          SpaceX is no stranger to exploding rockets. Just last month, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket exploded on the launchpad during a pre-flight test. The cause of the explosion isn't clear yet, but there's a bizarre twist in the investigation. It sounds like something out of a movie, but SpaceX has some questions about a building near the launchpad owned by competitor United Launch Alliance. Several sources who spoke with The Post say that SpaceX investigators have images of the ULA building during the incident which show an odd shadow and white spot on the roof. SpaceX founder Elon Musk has called the launchpad explosion "the most difficult and complex failure we have ever had in 14 years."
