    First Private Rocket Launch Into Orbit is Success

    SpaceX rocket launch is a success - BostonHerald.com

    Seems kinda sad that there's really no national sense of pride or anything attached to these launches.........

    I think it's kind of cool that space travel has moved on to the next step of private industry, even though it's in partnership with NASA. That said, I still feel NASA needs funding along with all of the other government science agencies.

    If we are to ever do anything real out there, this is the way it has to be. Just wait till Weyland Industries gets rolling.

    NASA does have funding, it's just not in rocket or space shuttle launches anymore. Did it get drastically cut, absolutely. Is it still being funded with a different mission in mind, yes.

    Meh, I believe we are years away from being considered dangerous from an alien race. Unless we have some abundant resource that is needed I will take my chances the first aliens to arrive will be friendly.

    I don't know what they would do with our vines. But, I would hope they wouldn't intervene on the vines or CF.
