NASA's project Morpheus, a lander designed to carry heavy cargo to the moon, has crashed and exploded at Kennedy Space Center.
Designed to carry up to 1,100 pounds, the project was undergoing a free-flight test today when it caught fire and blew up.
Morpheus is fueled by liquid oxygen and methane — two fuels that
could someday be extracted from materials found on the moon and mars.
