NASA unmanned Antares rocket was to go to the International Space Station this evening, but it didn’t even make it out off planet Earth. A powerful explosion rocked the ship just seconds after takeoff, chronicled in numerous cell phone videos of people gathered to watch the launch. At this time, there is not a whole lot of information about why this happened or how many people may be injured. There already are reports of property damage from debris, so the incident was not contained just to the launch site.
There will be a lot of speculation about this event throughout the evening and tomorrow, but at this time there is no reason to suspect this is anything more than an accident. Common Sense Conspiracy will continue to monitor this event as more information becomes available.
