Missile launched from VAFB fails to hit target

Crews at Vandenberg Air Force Base conducted a missile defense test on Friday.

A Ground-based Interceptor missile was launched from the base with a goal of hitting a ballistic missile launched from the Marshall Islands.

The Interceptor missile did not hit its target.

The Department of Defense says program officials will review the test to try to determine what went wrong.
