200 Foot Tall Rocket Explodes

Boeing’s commercial satellite launching service, Sea Launch, suffered a disaster yesterday (January 30th). A Zenit-3 rocket, with a Dutch satellite as payload, exploded on the launch pad. However, because the launch platform is at sea, no personnel were physically on it and no one was injured.


They’re being mum on what happened. Here is there literally 5 line press release. I’m sure the media will hear more later.
