Steve Jurvetson has a smokin' hot report from the Valentine's Day ROC Launch. Besides the eye-candy, he reports that the Discovery Channel was shooting a special “When Rockets Go Wrong” show. The fireball came from an 18' aluminum V2 that was rigged to act like many of the original test units. (Photo by Wedge Oldham, ROC President)
