The SpaceX launch site in Florida was rocked by a massive explosion Thursday morning.
According to NASA, the blast occured when SpaceX was carrying out a routine test firing of its unmanned rocket.
Officials were conducting the test ahead of a planned launch on Saturday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, but few other details have been released.
It’s unclear whether there have been any injuries, but there’s word multiple explosions continued for several minutes and they shook buildings several miles away. A cloud of thick, black smoke has plummed in the sky over the site.
The rocket was supposed to hoist an Israeli satellite this weekend.
More information to come.
