history in the making

I have plenty to blog about and no time to do it in, but I can’t turn down a request for a quick plug on such a cool topic: Aaron Rowe from Wired Science alerted me to the fact that Falcon 1 made it to space: the first privately developed liquid fueled launch vehicle to achieve earth orbit. Aaron’s followup entry has some good background for those who haven’t been following the SpaceX story.
