Congratulations To SpaceX!

WOW! What an incredible accomplishment. Congratulations to everyone at SpaceX for advancing the technologies for space travel and exploration.

My last post let Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy do all the talking. This one isn’t much different – he nails all the technical details far better than I can.

This news excites me because it brings the USA closer to getting itself back into space instead of relying on Russia. By re-using the first stage booster rocket, SpaceX has made space launches less expensive. I cannot wait to see what they do in the future and I cannot wait to see SpaceX handle crewed launches.

Just amazing stuff!
