Space Captains Of Industry In The World Of Today.

Good news from Elon Musk. SpaceX, his space launch company, has finally succeeded in launching a rocket to orbit. Here is Musk's email announcement.
"Wow, this is a great day for SpaceX and the culmination of an enormous amount of work by a great team. The data shows we achieved a super precise orbit insertion — middle of the bullseye — and then went on to coast and restart the second stage, which was icing on the cake.

"I will have a more complete post launch statement tomorrow, as right now I'm in a bit of a daze and need to go celebrate :)

—Elon— "
Visit the SpaceX website for cool pictures and more information. (Here.) Press release is here.

UPDATE: Edited highlight video of launch and flight is here. Longer video is at Hobbyspace.com here.
