Space X's Falcon 1 Makes it to Orbit!!!


Main booster separation.

Pop them corks!

Wow! What a week for space exploration.
First the Chinese spacewalk, and now Elon Musk's company Space X has successfully launched a vehicle into orbit.

We are now entering the age of commercial space travel. No longer do our Earthly borders matter, from this point on there is only one border. The gravity well between Earth and space.

Check out the screams of amazement in the background of this incredible video:

We are just (choke!) so proud to be human today!

Great Job to the people at Space X; and of course to China, our allies in the East.

Oh my goodness gracious! It's such a great time to be alive! YES! Between the LHC and THIS! I don't own any more socks to be knocked off!
