Russian Space Rocket Explodes After Launch - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

A Russian Proton-M rocket blasts off from a Kazakhstan base on Tuesday. All seems to be going well, until the rocket suddenly takes a nose dive. Shortly after, it begins to break apart and then explodes in a fiery blaze before crashing to the ground near the launch pad. The Interfax news agency reported that personnel inside bunkers nearby survived. The rocket was carrying three satellites worth about $200 million dollars, for Russia's troubled Glonass satellite navigation system.
