NASA camera melts during SpaceX launch

You may have seen it trending on social media – a NASA photographer captured the moments his camera melted during a SpaceX launch.

NASA says the photographer, who has been with the agency for 30 years, had four cameras set up to continuously photograph the launch.

Vegetation near the camera caught fire and quickly engulfed his camera.

The camera was about a quarter of a mile from the launch site.

The photographer was able to salvage the memory card and created a time-lapse of events as his camera melted.
