(CNN) — An unmanned NASA rocket exploded early Tuesday evening.

According to NASA, the Orbital Sciences Corp.’s Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo spacecraft were set to launch at 6:22 p.m. ET. It was set to carry some 5,000 pounds of supplies and experiments to the International Space Station.

“There was failure on launch,” NASA spokesman Jay Bolden said. “There was no indicated loss of life.
