A SpaceX Falcon 9R rocket exploded mid-flight over McGregor, Texas, early evening Friday. The rocket destroyed itself after detecting an internal fault, SpaceX said.
“During the flight, an anomaly was detected in the vehicle and the flight termination system automatically terminated the mission,” the private space flight company said in a statement.
