  Original Published: 7/2/2013  An unmanned Russian rocket veered off course and exploded in a fireball Tuesday, seconds after lift-off from a launch pad in Kazakhstan.   There were no immediate reports of casualties.    A Russian news agency reports the Proton-M rocket was carrying three satellites for Russia's global navigation satellite system, similar to our G-P-S system.   The rocket had just taken off, in a launch broadcast live on television.   Seconds later, it changed course, burst into flames, and dove nose-first into the ground.
