Not all space launches go well. Some often result in rockets crashing down, while others result in camera meltdown.

During a SpaceX rocket launch on May 22, a high-end Canon camera suffered disastrously and now Bill Ingalls, the NASA photographer on duty that day has revealed what caused the camera to disfigure, Mashable reported.

 

Ingalls explained that despite his Canon DSLR being set up furthest from the launch pad, it melted because of the grass around it caught fire from the launch blast. Interestingly, the memory card was found intact inside of the camera carcass.
