Antares Rocket for the ISS Exploded during Take-Off [News]
posted October 29 2014 15:42.27 by Giorgos Lazaridis




Its a most unfortunate event but thankfully this unmanned rocket caused no fatalities.
An Antares rocket exploded right after launch at the Orbital Sciences Corp.'s launch complex on Wallops Island. The 5,000 pounds of payload never reached the ISS. None of the equipment or supplies was critical for the ISS operation. Here is the official NASA statement for the event [link]

And here are some videos with the explosion.
