A Blue Origin launch ended with disappointment Monday when the rocket failed during liftoff.
It was the first launch failure reported by Jeff Bezos’ rocket company.
Flames shot out of the rocket shortly after it blasted off in West Texas at an altitude of about 28,000 feet, engaging the emergency launch abort system. The rocket separated from the capsule, which was carrying a number of science experiments concocted by NASA and groups of students, and the capsule parachuted back to the ground.
