SpaceX Makes History
SpaceX’s Falcon 1 has made history as the first privately developed launch vehicle to reach earth orbit from the ground yesterday.
The rocket carries a payload mass simulator developed by SpaceX, which is aiming for private space transportation and deliveries.
After three unsuccessful attempts, SpaceX has finally done it with this fourth attempt. Elon Musk, the company’s founder and CEO, called the launch a “great day for SpaceX.” Elon Musk is also the co-founder and former head of PayPal.
