Description

Antares Orb 3 Launch Failure and Descent into Hellish Inferno on 28 Oct 2014 This up close launch pad camera view is a time lapse sequence of my images showing the sudden catastrophic explosion of Orbital Sciences Antares Orb 3 rocket seconds after blastoff and descent into a hellish inferno at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, VA, on Oct. 28, 2014, at 6:22 p.m. The video then transitions to my a wider video/audio iPhone view as witnessed from press site at NASA Wallops, VA, showing raging firevball and hurtling debris all around the launch pad area. The commercial Antares/Cygnus cargo rocket was built by Orbital Sciences Corp and bound for the International Space Station (ISS) on the Orb 3 mission.
