Congratulations SpaceX!

What can you say but “congratulations” on the successful launch of the Space X Dragon capsule on top of the Falcon 9 booster. The payload is scheduled to arrive at the International Space Station (ISS) on Wednesday, October 10th and is carrying approximately 450 kilos of cargo and scientific instruments.

One of the rocket engines failed during the launch but the Falcon is designed to be able to complete it’s missions even if it suffers from two such failures.

Space X is working to produce a manned version of the Dragon and expects to complete this within three years. I can’t wait!
