SpaceX rocket explosion caught on camera

McGREGOR, Texas (CNN/Becky Maks) — A bystander caught the explosion of an unmanned SpaceX rocket at its facility in McGregor, Texas, on video. The company said the rocket blew itself up Friday evening after a malfunction was detected during a test.

SpaceX said it was testing a three-engine version of its Falcon 9 rocket, the successor to its Grasshopper rocket. The company said the rocket never went off course, and no one was injured. It said a rep from the FAA was on site during the test.
