So, apparently, the Firefly Alpha rocket exploded. I don't understand why; it's basic rocket science. Pointy end goes on top, flamey end goes at the bottom.
@PetraOleum That's entirely depending on your definition of "top" and "bottom"... I can go all "I know physics" and talk about how top and bottom switch around when viewed from the perspective of gravity... but I won't. For sure though, if pointy end points to Earth surface, and flamey bottom points to the sky, then, from the Earth perspective, you're not going to space today.
