What we know:
- Elon Musk's SpaceX was fueling its unmanned rocket when the blast occurred Thursday morning.
- The company was preparing for a test firing, considered routine, in advance of a planned Saturday launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
- The explosion destroyed the rocket and its payload: an Israeli satellite meant to be used in Facebook's effort to provide Internet service to poorly connected areas.
Above link is YouTube of the fire. Holy Cow!!! Hey Zuker you just lost your $150 million satellite. LOL. The explosions are partly from oxygen and partly from controlled demolition. Controlled demolition is so that there are NO PIECES left for someone to try and steal secrets.
Editor's note: Elon Musk, fairly libertarian, explodes very liberal left Mark Zuckerberg's satellite.
