A survey on leading satirical website, Cutting News has shown that most people are secretly hoping that rockets blow up into a million pieces as they take off.
The survey showed that 98% of people are quietly thinking this, but are generally ashamed, and slightly frightened that these terrible thoughts are in their head.
Local rocket fan, Peter Thape saw the SpaceX launch on the News and immediately felt the desire to see it blow up shortly after take-off.
‘I was doing ok until the woman doing the countdown suddenly said ‘God’s speed.’ Then, I wanted it to blow,’ admitted Thape.
‘Plus, there’s an Elon Musk thing going on too,’ he added.
