I can't believe they went that far for a launch and didn't have spare igniters. Beginner's mistake.

No...

...really?

All that bullshit news for that dud launch, when the real talent lies here.

The rocket supplier might need a new tag line.

They should have invited a rocket club along to put on a show if the main launch doesn't go ahead. :D Do you think perhaps they had a short window, and didn't have enough time to recycle?

Whatever the reason, it's not a good look for a space-launching wannabe to spit an igniter at a well publicized launch. However, I really hope they are successful with take two.
