Antares Rocket Shot Down by UFO

qtIcon for a much higher quality Quicktime version (about 25mb).

Overview:
October 28th, 2014... The original launch date for this thing was the 27th. It got scrubbed because some guy in a sailboat was within the flight trajectory of the rocket. Jerk. So millions of people were standing outside looking toward Virginia, waiting for the launch, which, by all accounts, was "all systems go". And it was. Until they launched it.

From the moment I saw this footage, it seemed to me that it wasn't a simple accident. So I cleared this up with my own version.

I'll be the first to admit that this was obviously done pretty quick and dirty. I wanted to get the funny out before everyone forgot about it...
