SpaceX Successful...

Recommended Posts

Many of you have already seen this, I'm sure, but for those who haven't, here is a video (40 + minutes) covering the launch today of the SpaceX Dragon (spaceship) headed for the ISS and the first (fifth try) successful landing of the first stage on a drone ship (sure was pretty).


This is a really exciting first, since it will help advance space travel and it will help reduce costs for that travel. I've been reading about this stuff since I first read Robert A. Heinlein's Rolling Stones and Rocket Ship Galileo when I was in my early teens, and now the commercial part of that is starting to happen.


Between this and SpaceShip Two (Rutan's design followup), there's a lot of exciting stuff starting to happen.

Remember: Aviation is NOT an exact Science!
