Crash launch of US rocket.
19:42

On November 4, 2015 at 03:45 UTC the “Super Strypi” rocket blasted off from a rail launch platform at the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Missile Range Facility, Kauai Island, Hawaii, United States. The first flight of an experimental U.S. military rocket designed for low-cost, quick-reaction satellite launches ended in failure, destroying 13 small spacecraft clustered on the mission for NASA researchers and university students. Government and industry officials hope the “Super Strypi” — also known as the Low Earth Orbiting Nanosatellite Integrated Defense Autonomous System, or LEONIDAS — has applications in the commercial industry as a dedicated light-class satellite launcher.
