Russian rocket crashes after lift-off
RUSSIA — A unmanned Russian rocket launch failed to make orbit. About $250 million worth of equipment was lost in the launch. But some say it's a small price to pay for failure.
Just seconds after launch, the rocket veered off course and then exploded into a fireball.
The proton-m rocket was carrying three satellites for Russia's global navigation satellite system.
In 2010, a Russian rocket carrying three satellites crashed in the Pacific Ocean.
