Supply rocket explodes after liftoff


A commercial supply ship bound for the International Space Station has exploded moments after liftoff. Orbital Sciences Corp.'s unmanned rocket blew up over the launch complex at Wallops Island, Virginia, just six seconds after liftoff. The company says no one was believed to be hurt and the damage appeared to be limited to the facilities. Flames could be seen shooting into the sky as the sun set.
