To me, failures like this speak of several things: A test to 'run to destruction' comes to mind where they set up a dynamic test simulating actual use to verify just what happens/happened and why. This method has been used much in the aircraft industry and with the power involved here, it seems a valid approach since the size of these is reaching beyond engineering like toys might be.
Imo. it calls for not only a material improvement but a hub design rework. The blades need to be gripped more thoroughly over their entire base/roots.
