Here's The Incredible Footage Of NASA's Antares Rocket Explosion

On October 28, 2014 an Antares rocket carrying more than 5,000 pounds of supplies meant for the International Space Station exploded. Just a few seconds after liftoff there was a failure in a first stage booster AJ-26 engine, causing the rocket to lose thrust and become engulfed in flames as it fell back to the ground.

This video is a compilation of 4 cameras that were on the launch pad to capture the launch.
