Two days before SpaceX was to launch a communications satellite that would widen Internet access in Africa, an unmanned rocket and its payload were destroyed in an explosion on a launch pad in Cape Canaveral, Fla. Smoke billowed from the pad where the AMOS-6 satellite was to be launched Saturday morning.

The payload included a communications satellite meant to provide direct Internet access to large and remote swaths of sub-Saharan Africa, in a program led by Facebook that also includes Eutelsat and Spacecom, the Israeli company that made the AMOS-6 satellite.

After the loss of the rocket and its payload, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg posted an update from Africa to say he is "deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX's launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent."

Zuckerberg added that his company has other technologies in the works, "and we will keep working until everyone has the opportunities this satellite would have provided."

@CoprophagousCop but... you see... I'm more afraid of human beings than aliens... that's why I am interested in The Holy One's @BRiT , video :p

Since I respect all beliefs, and the fact that one of my friends is a certified Pastafarian (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=pastafarian&bext=lfa&atb=v25&ia=web), I do not agree with posting videos that show their extraterrestrial deities in action. I think it's rude.

also... wtf?

p.s. I think the first video you posted is a image in any case? the second one started with an eye going through the dilation of an acid trip... so I stopped watching

My first post in this thread was a screen capture from the video BRiT posted, that I jokingly edited to make it look like a UFO was shooting the rocket. As it turned out, I was not the only one who was thinking this. In my second post, the first video postulates this. The second video is in the spoiler and takes a more scientific approach.
