Cygnus spacecraft blew up during the launch.
09:56
On October 28, 2014, at 22:22 UTC the “Cygnus” unmanned spacecraft blew up during the launch from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island off the U.S. east coast, Va., USA. The "Cygnus” unmanned supply spacecraft, built by U.S. space firm Orbital Sciences Corp., was supposed to deliver more than 2 tons of cargo to the International Space Station (ISS). The “Cygnus” (CRS Orb-3,also known as Orbital Sciences CRS Flight 3 or Orbital 3), was supposed to be orbited by the Antares-130 rocket-carrier also built by Orbital Sciences Corp. This flight, which would have been its fourth to the International Space Station and the fifth of an Antares launch vehicle, resulted in the Antares rocket exploding seconds after liftoff.
