The Dragon has landed

Following up on yesterday’s successful launch by SpaceX, they also successfully recovered the Dragon capsule put into orbit by the Falcon 9 rocket.

I know a lot of people shrug their shoulders at this kind of news, especially because the government has been doing space launches just like this for decades. Yet, if a private company or companies gain the ability to reach space without governments, it opens the door for private space ventures for which there is no limit, and it is the potential of those ventures that could fuel the future of innovation.
