‘Kairos’ rocket exploded One shortly after taking off in Japan

Just seconds after his launch “Kairos” exploded, a small of Space One’s. Space One company that built the rocket wanted to become the first company in Japan to set a satellite orbit. It was an 18-meter long rocket, which literally disbanded after taking off at 11:01 a.m. (02:01 GMT) in the Wakayama area, leaving behind a large cloud of smoke, a fire and fragments of the rocket in live transmission from local media. The rocket carried a small government test satellite, which could temporarily replace spy satellites in case they went offline. Flaming debris fell on the surrounding hillsides activating the automatic firefighting system. Subsequently, Space One announced that she “finished the flight” after the failed launch.
