    Brazilian Disaster Seen From Space

    SUMMARY: Space Imaging's IKONOS satellite took a picture of the Brazilian rocket disaster aftermath on August 24, 2003. Two days before this picture was taken, a mistake with a prototype rocket's engines caused it to fire unexpectedly and explode on the launch pad - 21 people were killed and more injured. IKONOS took a picture of the Alcantara launch facility two years ago which shows the area before the disaster.
