Congratulations SpaceX!

After 3 failed attempts, SpaceX (Space Exploration Technologies Corporation) has launched their Falcon 1 launch vehicle into earth orbit. This is a big step for commercial space launches, and SpaceX isn’t finished. They plan to have Falcon 9 ready to launch next year, which will be able to provide manned spaceflight for NASA to the ISS with the Dragon module until the Orion project is up and running. This is very exciting news!
