A NASA rocket that was launched from Virginia today exploded just seconds after launch. Witnesses and science lovers gathered all around the East coast to see the much-anticipated lift off and were shaken and in awe of the sight. It is reported that all personnel involved in the launch are accounted for, and that no one was injured. The rocket was set to be launched with thousands of pounds of supplies headed to the space station.
No problems were reported by the launch team during the count down, however, the explosion occurred just six seconds after it was launched. The rocket was un-manned and the damage was limited to surrounding vehicles and property. A thorough investigation is expected to take place in order to find out the exact cause of the NASA rocket explosion.
