Looks like the 2nd stage went out of control

At least I'm hoping that was the camera view from the 1st and not the 2nd.
But silence so far

On the left camera view (1st stage?) there was an jerk (MECO I suppose), a pause, then a really big jerk right before everything went haywire on the right camera view (2nd stage)

I feel bad for Astra.  They are struggling financially from what I heard a while back.  I really hope they can get their act together and not have to fold up shop.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

How many Democrats does it take to fix a problem?  No one knows because it's never happened.

Okay think I have a better grasp of what I'm seeing.
You can see the fairing flex but fail to detach followed by the 2nd stage slamming into it at 2nd stage deployment. Then the 2nd stage fired while still within the fairing crashing through it. https://youtu.be/8jlQmW7mnYM?t=3740

This is what it should have looked like https://youtu.be/8jlQmW7mnYM?t=292

I should add it appears that unlike on a Falcon 9 where the fairings are attached to the 2nd stage the fairings on Astra's rocket are attached to the 1st stage with the 2nd stage fully contained within.

Raptor 2 (left) vs Raptor 1
Note the simplification. Produces ~25% more thrust as well
