Watch SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket explode during ascent (video)

Falcon 9 rocket exploded around two and a half minutes after launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Sunday, destroying over 5,200 pounds of cargo bound for the International Space Station. The rocket was traveling at around 2,900 mph some 27 miles up when it encountered what SpaceX referred to as an “anomaly on ascent,” ceased providing data to ground control, and was engulfed by a growing cloud of smoke before exploding and sending shards of the craft flying into the Atlantic Ocean.
