Reading Twitter comments about the recent Falcon 9 pad explosion, some postulated the problem was that a static discharge ignited the fuel as it was being loaded.
Since TEA-TEB is required to ignite the Falcon's fuel (something you'd assume would be easy, but it's not!), I am skeptical that static discharge is even a plausible cause of the explosion. However, since I am not a rocket scientist, I thought I'd get some experts' opinions.
Is it even possible to ignite the Falcon's fuel with a static discharge?
