Rocket launches ain't horseshoes or hand grenades

Yesterday, I mentioned that UP Aerospace's launch from Spaceport America was a partial success. I basically regurgitated what the source report said without thinking. Reader John points me to a follow-on report that says the rocket appeared to oscillate and come apart shortly after motor burn out. Unfortunately,
Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Here's a video from KOAT Albuquerque.
