Rocket explodes during test flight; no injuries

MCGREGOR, Texas (AP) — An unmanned SpaceX rocket self-destructed shortly after launching on a test flight at a Central Texas development site, the company said Friday.

Nobody was injured in the afternoon explosion at the test site in McGregor, Texas, 23 miles southeast of Waco.

The test flight involved a three-engine version of the company’s reusable Falcon 9 rocket, spokesman John Taylor said in a statement. “During the flight, an anomaly was detected in the vehicle and the flight termination system automatically terminated the mission,” he said.

Fundraiser Screening of INFRA-MAN for Stephen Romano TONIGHT at the Village Alamo Drafthouse Cinema

This is a fundraiser screening of a 35mm print of INFRA-MAN for Stephen Romano.

Stephen is a fixture on the Austin scene. A published novelist and screenwriter, he’s more passionate about his work than any artist I know. He’s also a dear friend and family member to many people around the world. On April 18th, he was walking on North Lamar Blvd. and a truck jumped the curb, hitting him at full force.

His injuries were profound; he has no insurance. He needs our help, friends.

To donate directly to Stephen now go here. This money will provide Stephen with as much help with incidentals as humanly possible.

Of course you can give a donation at the screening as well. Please come out and continue to spread the word about Stephen’s fund.

The Stephen Romano Recovery Fund

Stephen Romano

One of my best friends was recently struck by a Ford F150 truck that jumped the curb, hitting him hard, sending him up and over the vehicle. Every bone but one was broken in his right leg and he is covered with bruises, abrasions, cuts, and road-rash. He’s lucky to be alive. My friend is Stephen P. Romano, a noted science-fiction / horror author who is one of the most creative people I know and one of the biggest inspirations in my life. And now I have even more to be inspired by in his amazing strength moving forward with his recovery from this terrible incident.

But he needs our help and so I hope you will consider donating to his Recovery Fund at
