An unmanned Nasa rocket carrying supplies and secret equipment to the International Space Station exploded seconds after lift-off from a commercial launch pad in Virginia.

The Orbital Sciences Corp Antares rocket exploded mid-air just seven seconds after launch at 6.35pm local time on Tuesday. The cause of the accident was not immediately known, however no injuries were reported.

The rocket blasted into the air before combusting in a massive orange fireball and smashing back into the ground.

“We have lost the Orb-3 vehicle,” said the commentator on Nasa television, after the lift-off at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, Wallops Island, Virginia.
