    The rocket carrying an experimental army strike weapon exploded seconds after take off from the Kodiak Launch Complex at about 12:25 this (Monday) morning. Witnesses report the rocket lifted off, but soon nosed down and either self-destructed or hit the ground and exploded.
    There has been no comment from the Alaska Aerospace Corporation or the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command.
    Scott Wight, a Kodiak photographer, was watching the launch from Cape Greville in Chiniak, about a dozen miles from the launch site. He said even at that distance the explosion was quite loud and a scary sight to see.
    Another photographer at Cape Greville said the launch looked out of control and that she wouldn’t be surprised to find out it was detonated from mission control. She said the resulting fire burned brightly for a short while.
    At the nose of the rocket was the Army’s Advanced Hypersonic Weapon, which is a rocket-launched glider. According to the Army’s environmental impact statement, the small craft is designed to be lofted to near space before diving deeper into the atmosphere to glide to its target, the Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific at speeds over 3,500 mph.
    The Kodiak Launch Complex is about 25-miles from the city of Kodiak.
    This is a developing story, and we’ll have more information as it becomes available.

           Folks may have noticed a number of online videos popping up regarding the “ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.” The online awareness campaign challenges people to dump a bucket of ice water over their head and nominate other folks to do the same. The goal is to spread awareness about ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and raise money for finding a cure. A number of celebrities, sports teams and politicians have accepted the challenge, including Alaska’s Senator Lisa Murkowski.
             Murkowski posted a video online last week that shows her jumping into the fish hold of a tender in Southeast. The video includes a damp Murkowski talking about the ALS challenge after her plunge. 
             “When we take on a challenge we take it head on. So I’m going to challenge every single member of the United States Senate – do something, do it right. Demonstrate your commitment to getting rid of ALS. Go dunk your head in a bucket of ice, go jump in a fish hold in a tender in Southeast Alaska in Alaskan waters.”

           While many folks are still clinging on to summer, some people are already gearing up for the season of giving. Last week representatives from Operation Christmas Child were in town promoting the project, which sends shoe boxes full of gifts to children all around the world. It’s part of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization.
           Susan Bretz is the regional area coordinator for Operation Christmas Child in Alaska and said majority of the boxes collected in the state last year went to the Philippines following the typhoon. She said anyone can send a shoebox, and typically they ask folks to include anything a child might need or want.
           “School supplies are in high demand. Many of the children can’t go to school without school supplies. Right now is a great time to be getting deals on that. Hygiene items, pieces of clothing and of course toys and candy.”

Coming up this week, federal disaster funds are starting to come available for those affected by the king salmon collapse; a third cannery worker has been charged with pollution in Unalaska, and did you know that there’s a Siberian freshwater salmon that can reach seven-feet long? Yeah. We’re going to need a bigger boat. All that and more amazing facts coming up on the Alaska Fisheries Report. We had help from KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal in Unalaska and KCAW’s Robert Woolsey in Sitka.
