The Sept. 1 blast, which happened in the event of pre-launch trial of a Falcon 9, demolished the rocket and the $200 million Amos-6 network satellites. SpaceX representatives followed the reason for the catastrophe to the breakdown of a high-weight helium tank inside the Falcon 9’s upper stage.

SpaceX reported not long ago that they have immersed it’s accident examination.
