nasa-rocket-explode[Click here for video.] A rocket holding 5,000 pounds of supplies going to the International Space Station exploded in a mass of flames shortly after being launched from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia. The Antares rocket was unmanned, and no injures have been reported, but there is likely to be infrastructure damage in the area.

This was the third of eight resupply flights run by Orbital Sciences going to the ISS. A video of the fiery explosion has been posted here. Read more at NBC News.

  1. We’re there any yidden on board? All shuttles that blew up… From Columbia to the Israel one had Jews on it. Hashemite put us here on earth. When people think they are great and try to conquer other worlds where other species live then the person is removed by Hashemite from the world. Bottom line: stay in this world earth where Hashem put us

  2. “We’re there any yidden on board?”

    Did bother to read the article?
    “The Antares rocket was *unmanned*, and no injures have been reported…”

  3. There were yidden on board of both space shuttles that were destroyed: Judith Resnik was on Challenger and Ilan Ramon on Columbia. This rocket was not manned.

  4. Baruch Hashem the rocket was unmanned. Perhaps this is a cappara. We know that everything happens bishviel yisrael. So, clearly we need to think about this one.
