Lessons to be learned:

1) Add multiple failsafes to prevent deployment of booms unless altitude and speed within specified limits

2) Improved ejection system

3) Black box(es)

4) Improvements to the fuel system, as this was IIRC grounds for changing the engine design in the first place

5) Backup control surfaces
