Rocket launch

, April 22, 2013

The Orbital Sciences Corporation Antares rocket is seen as it launches from Pad-0A of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport (Mars) at the Nasa Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, on April 21. The test launch marked the first flight of Antares and the first rocket launch from Pad-0A. The Antares rocket delivered the equivalent mass of a spacecraft, a so-called mass simulated payload, into Earth's orbit.    Reuters/Bill Ingalls/Nasa/Handout
