watched the launch

A beautiful day for a launch.

I readied to watch the SpaceX rocket blast off from the Florida space coast, headed for the International Space Station. Among other things, it was carrying the new International Docking Adapter (IDA1).

A couple of minutes into the flight, I started to get very anxious.

And suddenly it went wrong. Some sort of explosion or disintegration. A white plume.

Then it broke apart.

Oh no.
