One crew member survived. Must have been a brown trouser moment but the odds of surviving a test flight are slim.
 
Apologies. Missed it top right, wrong search term. ARRSE ain't google you know

Beardie will be all over this PR opportunity
 
Been a bad week for commercial space companies in the U.S. in general with the Antares explosion the other day...just shows how complex and dangerous these missions can be.
 
Sounds like they were using a suspect engine design no one was convinced was safe.

From latest reports the engines were ok and it looks like the "braking system" may have deployed just after the launch.
 
Hopefully the guy who survived will provide some answers.
Oh yeah, right:

"So we dropped away from mother and I said "Let's cane it". And we started to accelerate and then........it all just fell apart and I dont remember anything else......".

Plod: Had you or your colleague been drinking sir?

etc, etc.....
 
If I had made a £125,000 deposit to be on the first flight.... I might be tempted a little to ask for my deposit back.

Christ. If I could get a tenner for one of my deposits, I'd be happy.
