The US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is advising to be aware of falling debris following the failed launched of the Falcon 9 rocket that was on the seventh commercial resupply mission to the International Space Station (ISS).

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – On Sunday, the SpaceX CRS-7 Falcon 9 rocket carrying a Dragon cargo ship with supplies for the ISS exploded just three minutes after it lifted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk said there was an overpressure in the liquid oxygen tank of the Falcon 9 rocket.

US Patrick Air Force Base in Florida issued a launch anomaly debris notice for all beaches north of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station after the failed Falcon 9 liftoff.

The next attempt to deliver supplies to the ISS will be made on July 3, when the Russian Progress cargo ship is expected to launch from Kazakhstan.

In April, the US Falcon 9 rocket successfully completed the sixth operational cargo delivery mission to the ISS for the SpaceX company under the Commercial Resupply Services contract with NASA.

Dragon is currently the only spacecraft capable of returning cargo from the ISS back to Earth.
