Haven't even read the article yet myself, but the title is "Deadly fire at India space center". :cry:

Solid propellants again...They donīt forgive handling errors. Thatīs the price of a place among the stars.

My condolences for the dead. Long live the Indian Space Program.

Pretty sketchy story. This was at a production facility for solid fuels, right?
