………….it exploded!

An Indian satellite rocket exploded less than a minute after it launched from the Sriharikota space centre in Andhra Pradesh state yesterday.

The Indian Space Reserach Organisation said it believed the explosion was caused by an electronic failure seconds after take-off that led to the flight taking a higher angle. It is the second launch failure for India’s space agency this year after a similar rocket on a developmental flight plunged into the Bay of Bengal in April.

India is planning its first manned space flight in 2016. Any volunteers for that trip?
