SpaceX making things happen…

As this blog has been chronicling since its inception, President Obama’s redirection of America’s manned space program has opened up a gap in the country’s ability to get into space since the end of the shuttle program this summer. Fortunately for us, PayPal founder Elon Musk‘s private company Space Explorations Technologies (SpaceX) looks like it might be the first company to make President Obama’s dream of the commercialization of space flight a reality. After SpaceX’s historic test launch of the Falcon 9 craft back at the end of 2010, that made it the first ever private company to launch into space, the company looks to be poised to make history yet again, namely becoming the first private company ever to launch a spacecraft to the International Space Station (ISS).
