I've seen a lot of rocket launches live on NASA TV and SpaceFlightNow.com, including todays launch of the Antares rocket carrying the Sygnus spacecraft to resupply the ISS, as seen here, 4 minutes and 28 seconds before launch:

But the launch didn't really go as planned:

It exploded six seconds after lift-off.

Live NASA webcast footage of the failed launch
Video of the failure from the press site
Video of the failure from 3000ft

This is the first time I've seen a launch failure live. Holy crap.

Anyone play the new Simcity? I only recently acquired an Origin account and I have 0 friends, I need friends to built with as I'm not going to play with strangers.
