It looks like it is sitting on top of a rocket. If it was 4 seconds after lift-off, my guess is that it was the ROCKET that malfunctioned and was destroyed as a precaution.

Of course, the ones the US has been testing haven't had too good of a track record once they are in hypersonic mode... crashing...
