There was an explosion today of a Space X rocket on the launchpad at Cape Canaveral. No one was injured, thankfully, and Space X is investigating.
Exploring space is really hard; there are so many things that can go tremendously wrong, very quickly, with disastrous results. Crossing the 100 or so miles to space is incredibly difficult. It’s hard work, but it pushes all of us forward.
Thank you to everyone involved at Space X for all of their work.
