The fantastic company SpaceX successfully launched one of its Falcon 9 rockets carrying its Dragon reusable capsule today. If all goes well, they will recover the capsule this afternoon in the Pacific, making SpaceX the first private company to launch and recover a capsule capable of carrying cargo or humans into space.

This event marks another milestone on the inevitable road toward commercial exploitation of space.
