Now conspiracy theorists are claiming the space rocket was “attacked”.
The “reusable” rocket was destroyed after suffering a catastrophic explosion on launch at Cape Canaveral in Florida, US on Thursday.
The huge blast, which caused no injuries, ripped through the rocket during a pre-launch check – sending plumes of thick black smoke into the air.
Billionaire SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said the cause of the explosion, which was caught on camera, is still unknown.
Skeptics have cast doubt on the theory, pointing out that the flying object was simply a bird or a bug.
But truth seekers hit back, suggesting that the object was travelling too fast – and therefore must be a machine.
The video triggered a flurry of speculation on social media, where many have been left puzzled by the object.
Commenting on the YouTube video, Scott Keller wrote: “One person said it was a bug. Someone else a bird.
“Hard to accept those two as explanations. Too fast and not close to the camera.”
