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.
@Firesphere did you see Astra's rocket go sideways?
@pearofdoom @Firesphere I was rather impressed it didn’t topple, kept going (sideways) and when the thrust to weight ratio allowed actually went up! I do hope it doesn’t put them off sharing it live too. Space is hard heh
@alex @Firesphere more than one of my kerbal rockets did exactly the same thing. It's so cool to see all the live launches
@pearofdoom Yeah, that was funny
