Cygnus Mission Lost in Antares Launch Failure; First RocketCam System Loss

2014 Oct 27

Orbital attempted to launch another Cygnus cargo vehicle to ISS today with its Antares rocket, but the rocket exploded and was destroyed shortly after liftoff.

A RocketCam system was onboard Cygnus to provide video of the Cygnus solar array deployment and Cygnus' approach to ISS, but it too was destroyed.

This is the first RocketCam system lost for any reason in ~125 missions.
