Rocket Explosion (7 pics + 1 video)

Posted by djkirsh in Pictures   28 Dec 2010   / 11366 views

This unmanned Indian Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) rocket explosion took place in India just minutes after takeoff. There seems to be a difference of opinion as to the cause. One Indian official thinks the first stage worked fine and another thinks it didn't. The rocket was carrying a GSAT-5P communications and weather satellite. The rocket was launched from the Sriharikota Space Center. It soared into the sky with a thick orange flame making a deep roar and then exploded and disintegrated.

They thought it wouldn't take a rocket scientist to built a rocket har har. Honestly, they worship cows, use wheeled cardborad boxes as cars and throw their loved ones to rot in the same river they bathe in. Shocking news the rocket was a pos :)

Christmas hangover?


Christmas hangover?

SRIHARIKOTA: The launch of the Geo-Synchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV-F06) from here on Saturday ended in a failure, with the vehicle losing control 47 seconds after its flight, breaking up into pieces and erupting into a ball of flame.

As the vehicle veered off the safety corridor and the flaming debris could have fallen on the residential areas around Sriharikota, Range Safety Officer (RSO) V.K. Srivastava pressed the “destruct” button and the explosives around the vehicle ignited and destroyed it.

scar2496,
They are doing exactly that in 2016. Actually the US had similar issues before the first manned space flight, the would-be pilots watching the test vechicle explode to million pieses and waiting to be on the next one in a few months... sucks.
