I Am An Eyewitness From The Press Site Of The Orbital Sciences Antares Rocket Critical Failure, AMA
I was attending the launch as an official guest of NASA through their NASA Social program. I was filming at the press site 2.2 miles away and I can describe the event and the aftermath. I'll do my best to answer any questions you have about the rocket launch, the evacuation, the press conference afterward, and anything else related to the event. I'm going to be sleeping before driving home from Wallops Island, VA, so I may not get to answer all questions right away, but I will answer everything within 24 hours.
Edit: an update from the road. I'm about 2.5 hours from getting home from Wallops. I'll be sure to answer all your questions then. Thanks for participating!
Edit 2: I'm finally home! I've cracked open a beer and I'll get to answering questions. I can't promise I'll get them all, but I'll do my best :D
Edit 3: I'm heading to bed. Thanks everyone for the discussion! If there's any more questions, I'll try and get to them tomorrow! Reply to the main thread so they hit my inbox please :)
