The safety officers purposely blew up the antares rocket [two days ago] on lift off since it was immediately acting up, and was determined it wouldn't make it into orbit. So blow it up before it crashes into a populated area.
That was an Antares 130, while the two previous successes were antares 120.
The unmanned Antares rocket that exploded two days ago off the coast of Virginia was deliberately destroyed after it became apparent there was a problem, a spokesman for Orbital Sciences Corporation said Thursday.
