SpaceX Rocket Reaches Orbit After Engine Explodes
SpaceX has the contract for sending supplies up to the ISS, provided that it's first launch is successful. Well, it went up yesterday and is orbiting successfully. However, upon examination of telemetry and slow motion video, it was discovered that one of the 9 engines on the booster actually exploded in flight (video at link). It's designed to survive the loss of one engine, and apparently, that's exactly what it did.
