Mark Zuckerberg’s trip to Kenya on Thursday unfortunately coincided with SpaceX’s launch failure that destroyed Facebook’s satellite that was key to his plan to beam free Internet to remote parts of Kenya.
A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket exploded at 6:00 am Kenyan time on the launch pad at Cape Canaveral in Florida during a test, destroying it and its payload, the private space firm said.
“As I’m here in Africa, I’m deeply disappointed to hear that SpaceX’s launch failure destroyed our satellite that would have provided connectivity to so many entrepreneurs and everyone else across the continent,” wrote the Facebook founder on his page.
However, Mr Zuckerberg remained optimistic that his ambitious plans were not ruined, pegging his hope on new technology, Aquila.
