Antares Rocket explodes!

The unmanned Antares rocket carrying the unmanned Cygnus spacecraft exploded during launch at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia, Tuesday evening.

The launch was scheduled for 6:22 p.m. ET. The spacecraft was carrying 5,000 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station.

The launch was originally scheduled for Monday, but was scrapped when a boat wandered into the hazard area.

Will update as more info becomes available....
