Space X Explosion At Cape Canaveral
A SpaceX rocket exploded at its Cape Canaveral launch pad Thursday morning, destroying the rocket and the satellite it was due to launch on Saturday.
SpaceX said there were no injuries as a result of the explosion, which it described as an “anomaly.” SpaceX CEO Elon Musk tweeted that the explosion happened while the rocket was being fueled, but that the cause of the blast is still unknown.
The explosion occurred at SpaceX’s main launch pad in Cape Canaveral, destroying the rocket, and a Facebook satellite that would have brought internet access to Africa.
