Congrats to SpaceX

Felt a bit surreal to finally see the rocket reach orbit after three failures. What a sense to at last use a dummy payload.

SpaceX won’t change the world of space travel, all their hardware seems expendable in reality. I don’t think we’ll hear about the first stage recovery this time either.

The real reusable launch vehicles will come. As I write this, people like Paul Breed, John Carmack and many others are probably going back to their work after watching Elon Musk’s moves. The future awaits…

    in the long term, the SpaceX success starts the END of ALL space agencies, since, NO one government agency of the world will be able to compete with private space companies on LOWER COSTS and FASTER development TIME
    .
    then, NASA may survive about 15-20 years from now if it will succeed in the ESAS plan or less than 10 years if the Orion/Ares-1 won’t work (or will be delayed to 2018 or later) or LESS than 5 years if the VERY DANGEROUS and USELESS Hubble Servicing Mission 4 will FAIL, as explained here:
