An Alliant Techsystems (ATK) suborbital rocket carrying two NASA hypersonic experiments was destroyed shortly after liftoff from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia Friday, August 22. No injuries or property damage were immediately reported.

The launch marked the first flight of ATK's ALV-X1 suborbital rocket. On-board the 53-foot tall rocket were NASA's Hypersonic Boundary Layer Transition (HYBOLT) and the Sub-Orbital Aerodynamic Re-entry Experiment (SOAREX) payloads as well as a U.S. Naval Research Laboratory receiver and transmitter intended to help with ocean recovery.
