 NASA Rocket Failed To Take-Off And Explodes On October 28 2014

Moments after lifting off at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the unmanned Antares rocket meant to bring cargo to the International Space Station exploded. This was to be the third commercial resupply mission by Orbital Sciences. The explosion occurred at 6:22 pm EDT on October 28, six seconds after launching.

No injuries or deaths are believed to have occurred because of this failed launch, with all personnel at Wallops safe and accounted for.

I feel sorry for the people who have worked for years to develop experiments that were lost in this explosion of the cargo-carrying spacecraft.
