    Apologies or typos….typing on the fly.

    It is going over  South Africa  Indonesia, Philippines….expected to crash to earth over Pacific

    Most powerful rocket in human history got past the karman line.

    huge moment in space exploration history, even though it seems it has malfunctioned and exploded and other half of craft is now in process of crashing earthwards

    I was watching the launch on the angry astronaut live feed on you tube

    Currently watching it and new news constantly coming in.

    It seems a plume was witnessed coming from the sides of space craft prior to explosion….and man, was that some explosion I witnessed on AA’s feed.

    Footage will be being shown shortly on the main stream media I am sure.

    Link to the live feed I was watching.

    If you fast forward to the 1 hour 3 minute mark you will see the first stage detaching and then exploding.

    It was quite a moment watching it live.

    I told Mme B it had blown up, she looked it up and it was saying a successful launch.

    Some sort of electronic failure meant they lost contact with the rocket assembly so safety rules mean it has to be destroyed.

    Question – How could they destroy it if they had lost contact with it?  :scratch:

    If they can destroy it must be fitted with a bomb, perhaps with another name. the bomb could be rigged to detonate if the signal is lost.

    When they have people onboard, will they continue to blow them up if a defect occurs?
