SpaceX launch which suffered a devastating explosion on Thursday was supposed to launch on saturday Amos-6, almost a $200 million satellite to geostationary orbit that will provide internet to various part of africa as part of the facebook’s internet.org initiatives.
I’m 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.
– Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg who is in Africa shared his disappointment for the failure on his facebook page.
We hope the failure to be a temporary one, get a fix real quick and Amos 6 fired up in space.
