Some kind of system or structural failure occurred Sunday morning during lift off as the Space X rocket explodes off the coast of Florida.
From my observation looking at the video loop before and after the explosion you can see what could appear to be shiny hot spots where the second stage rocket is but it could also be sun glare and then Boom at 2:33! It reminds me of the Challenger explosion when the O rings failed.
Thank goodness no one was killed but this is another set back for a lingering space program that as of late hasn’t had many spectacular triumphs in comparison to it’s 50 year past.
About 2:30 into this video the explosion occurs…
