BlackRock_07

Amateur rocket launch. Deep impact. The parachute of a rocket failed to open, leading to a hard landing during the annual Black Rock X amateur rocketry event in the Black Rock desert, Nevada, USA. This huge flat expanse of land is a popular launch site for large and powerful amateur rockets as it is far from civilization and has little natural animal or plant life. .
