Sad space news.

The SpaceX International Space Station resupply mission failed as the company’s Falcon 9 rocket exploded shortly after launch.

The mission launched at 10:21 a.m. local time on Sunday, June 28 from Cape Canaveral, Florida. But the rocket disintegrated into small fragments just minutes after blastoff.

This would have been SpaceX’s seventh resupply mission to the ISS. But the rocket failure marks the private space company’s first failed mission to the space station.
