An unexpected explosion occurred during the test firing of one of NASA's rockets at the Space X launch site at Cape Canaveral, Florida, on Thursday.
According to witnesses the shock of the initial blast could be felt miles from the test site and several smaller explosions continued to occur for a few minutes afterwards. A fuelling operation was being carried out when the blast rocked the launch site, but details of the cause have not been established yet. The blast reportedly destroyed Facebook's Internet.org satellite.
The Brevard County Emergency Management Office, however, assured the public on Twitter that despite a huge black cloud of smoke rising, the public was in no danger after the incident.
