(Redmond, WA)  --  A Redmond, Washington-based company that built a satellite that was aboard the Antares rocket that exploded during lift-off says there will be many more spacecraft to come.  The unmanned rocket blew up last night, six seconds after leaving the launch pad on the Virginia coast.  Eric Anderson, co-founder of Planetary Resources, told KOMO-TV that there's always risk involved with space travel, but his company will be building "tens of thousands of spacecraft" in the years to come.  The Planetary Resources satellite was going up for a test mission as the company looks to enter the field of mining asteroids.
