The SpaceX Falcon9 rocket successfully delivered the Dragon capsule to orbit.
In two or three orbits (3 to 4 1/2 hours), they will attempt to bring Dragon back home. If successful, it will be the first time a private company has brought a payload back to earth from orbit.
I will have an update then, I am sure.
SPLASHDOWN at 1:04 pm central today!
I can’t wait to see full video feeds of all of this. This is a historical day, if you haven’t noticed.
Woo hoo! That launch was super smooth.
