SpaceX Succeeds - Sort of..
It looks like SpaceX's second attempt to launch it's Falcon 1 rocket was a success today - almost. While the rocket did successfully launch, they lost contact with it during the second stage, prior to reaching LEO. This is still good news for the company, as their first launch failed on the launch pad a year ago. The price tag of $7 million per launch makes them a very affordable alternative to other launching services, and potentially allows them to work with NASA to service the ISS.
