” …All of this. All of this was for nothing – unless we go to the stars.” – Infection, Babylon 5, J. Michael Straczynski

The proof is in the sky

SpaceX puts up its second successful Falcon I rocket this time with a real payload for the Malaysian government the RazakSAT.

Concedering the common hardware heritage between the F1 and future F1e, F9 and F9H this is a good technology and operations demonstration.  Another article of proof that they’re on thier way to thier described goals of improving access to space with respect to reliability and cost.

Next up for SpaceX?  The Falcon 9 Maiden Flight  from Cape Canaveral.
