Orbital Antares Rocket Explodes Shortly After Launch Shocking Onlookers [With 5 Videos]

The launch was proceeding as expected. Across the board, the Orbital team manning their stations had green lights. The weather was almost perfect. There was a sense of anticipation after seeing the launch scrubbed the day before because a boat had wandered into the range. No one could have foreseen what would happen next.
