The firm is targeting a 6:10 p.m. ET launch on Sunday of the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR) mission from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

This company impresses me with their vision and go, none of the big players in the field have come close to doing this with far far bigger budgets and staff

a failure in its hydraulic control fins brought the rocket down at the wrong angle on the first attempt but it did get dam close to achieving it's goal on the first try , could this company be the new Apple of space

The company, headquartered in Hawthorne, California, also has been contracted by Nasa to develop beefed-up Dragons for astronaut rides to the space station, beginning as early as 2017 and at $ 58.000.000 per astronaut that America pays to the Russian space agency will be money well spent at Space x

We will have to wait a day launch was scrubbed due to problems with a U.S. Air Force ground radar tracking system.A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket was less than 3 minutes from launching the Deep Space Climate Observatory into the sunset sky above Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida when the radar issue forced the delay. The next chance to launch the satellite, and attempt an ambitious Falcon 9 rocket landing test, will be on Monday (Feb. 9)
