A rocket has crashed back down to earth just six seconds after removing in Japan.

There was an enormous, fiery explosion as the bottom of the 10-metre rocket struck the ground following an engine failure.

TELEVISION footage showed it being introduced into the air and concerning an abrupt stop before crashing back down with a bump.

The rocket was established by Japanese start-up business Interstellar Technologies, which is aiming to supply economical business area flights.

It had actually apparently been filled with ethanol and liquid oxygen.

The company’s president Takahiro Inagawa apologised for the failure as an examination was released.

No one was injured in the occurrence in Taiki, Hokkaido prefecture.

Interstellar Technologies’s very first rocket launch was in July 2017, when it reached about six miles into the sky prior to breaking apart.
