Proton-M was carrying 3 GLONASS-M satellites of the ill-fated Russian navigational system. There were no causalities, but evacuation of personnel was ordered because of toxic rocket fuel fumes. Video of the event can be found here.
Maybe this device can even help to store data after an EMP, which will make it harder for criminals (or police) to destroy important evidence. But for now researchers hope to use it in biological sensors or for medical monitoring.
