Russian Proton rocket spins out of control short after launch and crashes

At Baikonur Cosmodrome a Russian Proton-M heavy lift rocket carrying three GLONASS navigation/positioning satellites dis spin out of control shortly after launch and exploded  at Baikonur Cosmodrome.

The launch and crash was captured by rocket spotters.  The sound and shockwave hit them 10 seconds after seining the rocket crash. Which sets them on about 3.4 Kilometer from the launch pad. This video illustrates the shear power of the event, much better than the videos broadcasted by Russian state Television.

Mind your ears and speakers!
