UP Aerospace’s SpaceLoft XL failed yesterday during the inagural launch at New Mexico’s Spaceport America. The rocket was suppose to reach about 350,000 feet but only made it to about 40,000 before plummeting back to earth. The rocket payloads are purchased by average citizen’s wanting to fly things into space. Among the contents of this flight were 4 Cheerios from a family that wanted to be the first to eat cereal flown into space :)
