Great Falcon-9 Launch!
SpaceX, one of our greatest hopes for a commercial manned space program, has achieved a huge milestone with the successful maiden launch of Falcon-9 with a Dragon capsule today. This is the craft that may one day soon be used for ISS resupply, and perhaps even crew transport.
Even as Obama shuts down the US governments manned space program, the commercial sector is picking it up. This is a momentous day.
Congratulations to Elon Musk and the rest of the team at SpaceX!
