Submission + - SpaceX Falcon 1 Flight 3 Ends in Failure (spaceref.com)

Nano2Sol writes: About 2 minutes and 13 second into what looked like a good flight an anomaly occurred which resulted in the loss of the the 3rd flight of Falcon 1. The video of the launch shows what looks like an oscillation just before it cutoff. According to Elon Musk it appears there was a problem when the second stage tried to separate from the 1st stage. Musk said in statement afterwards that he, the company and its employees were 100% ready to go forward from this day and that Flight 4 will go ahead as planned.
