Falcon 1 in Orbit

A GMU Ph.D. student and entrepreneur-extraordinary notified me of some interesting news about a project he's been working on. Watch your back, NASA.
A privately financed company launched a rocket of its own design successfully into orbit on Sunday night, ushering in what the company’s founders hope will be a new era of spaceflight.
