Oh well, roll on LauncherTwo.

How is Branson  doing now, did he get his taxpayers loan then?

Well like they said, the date form failure will be invaluable and most likely their next mission will succeed, thanks for sharing Bot.

Peace

I havent a clue why this reminded me of Evel Knievel tying to jump the snake river in a rocket in 74.

50% of all maiden launches fail. The first Ariane failed, as did the first Ariane 5. Arianespace is now one of the most successful commercial launch companies in the world and the Ariane 5 one of the most reliable launch vehicles.

The first 4 SpaceX launches ended in failure, the company was close to going bankrupt, look where they are now.

The loss of this the first LauncherOne will be a set back, but not an unexpected one. It was flying with an inert mass instead of a payload just in case of such an eventuality
