SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket explodes with Facebook satellite on board [video of event]

Thursday morning at 9:07am two tech giants took a hit when a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket exploded on the launchpad while carrying a satellite for Facebook.

Tesla’s Elon Musk owns SpaceX and was set to launch on Saturday carrying a Facebook satellite intended to give internet access to Africa.

This kind of changed things:

The exact cause is not yet know and the launch pad has incurred substantial damage which will likely impact SpaceX’s aggressive launch schedule.
