Sea Launch has a bad day

Sea Launch Experiences Anomaly During NSS-8 Launch

"A Sea Launch Zenit-3SL vehicle, carrying the NSS-8 satellite, experienced an anomaly today during launch operations. All personnel at the launch site are safe and accounted for."

Editor's note: Yea, it certainly had an "anomaly" - the rocket blew up into a whole bunch of little pieces on its floating launch pad.
