Yeah, that thing pretty much exploded. Sucks as this will cause a significent delay in manned space flight from US soil.

Leaked video out. Huge explosion from the capsule. Maybe not a great idea to carry so much propellant on re-entry and invest in a few more parachutes.

and yes I know it's an abort system, the SuperDracos are supposed to provide that protection and a booster style rocket assisted landing.
