Falcon 9's first launch successful!

Just a brief note to congratulate Elon Musk and SpaceX on the successful launch of their Falcon 9 rocket on its first attempt, today, June 4, 2010 at 14:45 EDT! The Dragon capsule is now in Earth orbit. More information and pictures will follow. The view from the rocket-mounted cameras was awesome!

WOOOHOOOOOO!!!
