An unmanned rocket that was heading toward the International Space Station exploded on Thursday just six minutes after takeoff.

The rocket was carrying more than 2 1/2 tons of supplies — including food, fuel and clothes. 

Most of that likely burned up as the unmanned spacecraft fell back toward Earth.

NASA says the current crew on board the International Space station as well stoked for now.

The Russian rocket took off as planned from Baikonur, Kazahkstan.

Russia says that the spacecraft failed above a remote part of Siberia.
