A NASA Antares rocket explodes on launch at the Wallops Flight Facility, which is located on the eastern coast of Virginia. The rocket was originally scheduled to take off yesterday but was delayed. The unmanned rocket was taking 5,000 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station.
There is no indicated loss of life but significant vehicle and property damage. Mission control is trying to access what went wrong. Orbital Sciences had the contract with NASA to launch the rocket to take the supplies to the ISS.
