Hawaii´s First Rocket Launch Fails


Hawaii´s first space rocket was supposed to launch Tuesday - after numerous delays. The launch of 55-foot "Super Strypi", however, failed shortly after takeoff.

"The ORS-4 mission on an experimental Super Strypi launch vehicle failed in mid-flight after liftoff at 5:45 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time today from the Pacific Missile Range Facility off Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawaii," the Air Force said.

"Super Strypi" was developed in coordination with Sandia National Laboratories, UH’s Space Flight Laboratory, the Pacific Missile Range Facility and Aerojet Rocketdyne. The flight was originally scheduled for October 2013 but postponed several times.
