well space x finally launched their space ship 'dragon' into space. good on them! can't do any worse than nasa!

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — A private space capsule called Dragon soared into the predawn sky Tuesday, riding a pillar of flame like its beastly namesake on a history-making trip to the International Space Station. The unmanned capsule, built by billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk's Space Exploration Technologies Corp. (SpaceX), is the first non-governmental spacecraft to launch to the space station, ushering in a new era of partnership between the public and private spaceflight programs.


my respect for this program is who the dragon carried into space!

The Falcon 9 rocket's second stage is also reportedly carrying ashes from 308 people, including actor James Doohan, who played Scotty on the 1960s television series "Star Trek," and Mercury program astronaut Gordon Cooper. The ashes were flown under a deal with the "memorial spaceflight" company Celestis, according to ABC News and Reuters. The SpaceX launch vehicle is named after the Millennium Falcon of "Star Wars," while the capsule got its moniker from the Peter, Paul and Mary song, "Puff, the Magic Dragon."


well heres hoping this mission to the space station is a success!
maybe if the dragon has photo abilities,we'll see some new 'ufo' pics!

first they need to get a man on the moon to do equal to nasa.
yeah nasa is dying down a bit now but doing worse than nasa is pretty easy based on acheivements and not current funding.

that said i'm happy to hear space x getting their work done.
