Description

My son, Hammond (5-yro), and I were checking out our first rocket launch at NASA's viewing area at the visitor center near Wallops Flight Facility for the Antares rocket carrying a primary resupply payload for the ISS but also an Arkyd A3 test platform for Planetary Resources. The rocket exploded shortly after lift off. We were quickly evacuated because the debris cloud looked to be headed our way. Thankfully no one was hurt! We cannot wait to go out and cheer for the next rocket launch carrying an Arkyd to space! #‎livetoflyanotherday‬
