    I guess they blow them up on purpose when things start to go bad. I wonder if that's to keep it from going haywire and getting out of the test range area?

    That looks a lot like the Estes model rockets my brother and I used to launch back in the 1970s.

    SpaceX was started by Elon Musk, the guy who helped create Paypal that was later sold to Ebay, started Tesla Motors & is Chairman of Solar City.

    This rocket was purely experimental & testing technologies other countries aren't even attempting to try let alone a small private company.

    I hope my 7th grad science teacher was on that. She was a real grumpy old bitch.
