SpaceX rocket explodes during failed test

A SpaceX F9R rocket exploded during a test over Texas today after an anomaly was detected. The rocket’s software automatically blew up the ship, preventing it from leaving the test area. “Today’s test was particularly complex, pushing the limits of the vehicle further than any previous test,” a SpaceX statement read. “As is our practice, the company will be reviewing the flight record details to learn more about the performance of the vehicle prior to our next test.”
