Sci-fi Becomes Sci-fact: Private Commercial Spaceflight

October 13th, 2012

SpaceOn Wednesday, a SpaceX cargo rocket successfully delivered its cargo to the International Space Station (ISS). While it wasn’t without problems, all I can say is, “It’s about time—now do it again!” Note that this isn’t actually the first SpaceX launch to the ISS, but the previous one was a test to verify that the rocket would actually work as designed.

    Kinda weird if you remember ever watching shows like U.F.O. when we were kids. In so many ways we’re not as advanced as they thought in the 60’s we’d be by 1980. And yet we’ve got a lot more toys like iPhones.
