Second Falcon 9/Dragon Launch

Successful launch of the Falcon 9/Dragon to the International Space Station for COTS demo flight 2.

Lots of coverage on Parabolic Arc and Nuite Blanche.


  1. Dragon captured successfully by the crew on ISS: video on youtube

  2. In recognition of SpaceX's successful test flight there is a neat 1959 article from the archives of Fortune up at CNN.

  3. I always think of the Gemini and Apollo capsules I've seen in museums, but Dragon's a big spacecraft; the scale is hardly even close to the same.
