A large grass fire triggered by a Russian rocket launch on Wednesday has killed one Kazakh man and hospitalised another. According to the AFP, pieces of the rocket fell to Earth after it launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome -- the site where Sputnik 1 took off in 1957. Incredibly, the debris set off a fire that spread about 15km across.
