Another Huge Victory For SpaceX

SpaceX is getting it done and getting it done impressively. 

This is some serious space hooah, for sure.

The Falcon 9 launch vehicle and the Dragon space capsule reached orbit earlier this morning.  The launch was delayed about two hours as the launch team had to investigate a false-abort issue and then confirm the readiness of the range to proceed.

The actual orbital parameters (altitude and inclination) placed the Dragon almost spot-on with the goal parameters.

Looks like two revs and a splashdown.

Well done!
