WATCH: Eyewitness Video of Friday's Failed Astra Rocket Launch
A guy in Alaska posted eyewitness video of the failed Astra rocket launch on Friday. It starts off looking good, but once it reaches the clouds you hear an explosion and then it starts plummeting back to earth. After about 30 seconds it crash lands into a fireball.
This is an incredible video of @Astra's failed launch attempt from their Kodiak launch site in Alaska Friday.— Paul Byrne (@ThePlanetaryGuy) September 12, 2020
You'll want the sound on for this one.
(The company expects to take three flights to get to orbit; this is their first attempt. Video by Eric Van Dongen via Facebook.) pic.twitter.com/tENRyYGfuZ
