But remember that Mars thing last week? That's still pretty cool.
It's all part of the process.
Morpheus, a prototype planetary lander meant for missions beyond the moon, exploded during a trial run at Kennedy Space Center yesterday, reports CNN.
"During today's free-flight test of the Project Morpheus vehicle, it lifted off the ground and then experienced a hardware component failure, which prevented it from maintaining stable flight," NASA officials said, according to CBS News.
Everyone is fine, but $500,000 did go up in smoke.
Well, back to the drawing board.
