Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook

Watch as a SpaceX rocket explodes on the launch pad with Facebook’s new revolutionary satellite inside.

The explosion took place just after 9am on Thursday as the rocket was fueling up to deliver the Facebook satellite to orbit.

Watch as the rocket explodes just a few moments into the video and then wait to hear the sound.

Due to the distance the camera’s microphone was away from the explosion, there is a delay between the explosion and the sound.

Elon Musk, the CEO of SpaceX commented on Twitter and said that the cause of the blast is unknown.

Mark Zuckerberg posted on Facebook that he was very disappointed because the revolutionary satellite that was inside the rocket was to deliver the Internet to Africa and parts of the Middle East.

This is a set back for a company that has really aimed for the stars. Elon Musk has said that SpaceX would be able to take people to Mars as soon as 2025.

Yesterday he couldn’t get off the ground, but don’t expect this to stop SpaceX.

There were a lot of investments that will never pay off because of the explosion, but nobody was hurt in the explosion of the unmanned rocket.

Don’t expect this to stop Musk or SpaceX, they will be launching again soon. Facebook on the other hand is going to go a different route to try and bring the Internet to Africa.

Glenn Beck

Facebook has been under fire from the right since it was released last week that several former employees claimed that the social media giant was restricting the visibility of conservative news to its users.

Facebook has denied the claim of discrimination and the company came up with a plan to ease the tensions. To make peace with the right, the Californian company invited 16 conservatives to meet Mark Zuckerberg and talk about what the two groups can do better.

Glenn Beck was one of the conservatives that Facebook invited, and in a response to Time Magazine, it shows that the tech/media company really made an impression.

Glenn said this when asked by Time:

“I thought it was great. I thought they were sincere. And as I was leaving, I thought: ‘What company has done that with conservatives?’ Especially a media company.

Right now Target is telling me that my wife or my daughter has to go into a bathroom where there might be a strange man, and I can either like it or shop someplace else. Here’s Facebook, a much larger global corporation, sitting down with conservatives and saying: ‘I think there’s a problem, and one of the problems is you don’t trust us, and we want to work with you to build that trust.’

I haven’t gotten a call from the Washington Post or Google or Twitter or The New York Times ever saying: ‘Let’s sit down with a group of you so we can understand what your thoughts and feelings are and where you’re headed and how we can help.’ I thought it was amazing.”

Glenn Beck was obviously impressed, as were the other conservative guests.

Is this going to mark a change in how the “liberal” media works with and communicates with conservatives and Republicans? Probably not, but it was good to see Facebook make an effort.

What do you think? Is Facebook biased against conservatives? Have you had any personal experiences where Facebook has censored you? Let us know in the comments.
