It was confirmed that the approaching ship came out of the maritime monitoring area. We are gearing up for the scheduled launch time of 5:30. The liquid oxygen filling to the aircraft has been completed.

Looked like a good start, but then it fell back on the pad.

Heard several "pops" after they switched to the distant pad view. Maybe some of the gas cylinders at the pad blew.

Chat in Japanese indicated the ground fuel tank and GSE exploded after the failure.

Better luck next time.

It took SpaceX four tries before a successful Falcon 1 flight and look at them now.

The poor thing. I appreciate a little kaboomy goodness from spaceflight history, but it's another thing when you're watching a startup and a team that's giving everything they've got so far.

Do try again, gents. SpaceX started the same way you did, and look where they ended up.

I detected a leak on the side of the engine just one second after ignition. I captured two pictures to illustrate the moment. Probably, the engine shutdown was a remotely commanded or it happened because the loss of pressure reducing substantially the pressure drop from the chamber to the line.

Go to 1:28:30 in the video to watch the launch. I feel for the Momo team at this launch failure. Hopefully they'll find out what went wrong, fix the problem and try again. I'm sure the team will learn a lot from this.
