I'm a big fan of humankind's drive to master space travel. So it's a big blow when rockets crash, especially as Russia's latest launch failure is the second in only a month.
A trusty Proton-M rocket crashed on Saturday shortly after launch. Further launches have been cancelled until the rockets can be declared safe.
The failed launch carried a Mexican communication satellite, but Proton-M rockets are also used by UK-based Global Xpress satellites - the UK's largest ever space project. I hope the problems can be solved, as this hampers my dream of getting into space!
