Rear ramp failed to open. It has safeguards against opening at really high altitude I think, and they couldn’t override them (they guy on livestream said something like that)

Its a reciprocal thing, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. One rocket was supposed to go up but fell down, the other was supposed to fall down but did not go up.
