An unmanned commercial rocket exploded during a test flight over Central Texas Friday

A SpaceX spokesman said the company was testing a three-engine reusable rocket. On-board computers detected a problem, and the rocket automatically self-destructed.

SpaceX said the rocket stayed within its flight area, and there were no injuries on the ground.

They're analyzing flight data to find the cause of the problem.
