OOPS… SpaceX rocket EXPLODES blowing up Facebook’s £150MILLION internet satellite

The first explosion occurred shortly before 9am with a second blast following about 20 minutes later.


The test, considered routine, was in advance of a planned Saturday launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.


Buildings several miles away shook from the blast, and multiple explosions continued for several minutes. A cloud of dark smoke filled the overcast sky.


Additional details were not immediately available. But sirens could be heard in the aftermath.


The blast has taken with it Facebook’s first satellite costing the company a whopping £150 million.


SpaceX confirmed that there was an anomaly on the launch pad which resulted in the loss of the rocket and its payload.
