Wow.. Lightning struck and nothing happen to the rocket! I think the same thing happen in November 1969 when lightning struck a Saturn V rocket twice during the launch of NASA's Apollo 12 mission to the moon.

Lightning strikes during rocket launches are rare, but they did happen before. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it triggered by the rocket passing through the moderate electrical field in clouds.
