    Rocket Fail Video Shows Human And Technological Risk With Each Launch

    What you see above is 32 minutes of something going wrong during each launch. While humanity has been launching sending into space since the 1950s, you can see just how hard it is — over and over again.

    Chinese villagers captured remarkable footage just after sunrise on Friday showing a Long March 3B rocket booster falling out of the sky, crashing into a mountain and exploding into flames while releasing highly toxic propellants left in its tanks after helping send a pair of Beidou-3 navigation satellites on their way into orbit.
