I try not to read news or surf the net on Sundays (that whole keeping the Sabbath Day holy thing, you know), so I missed being able to watch SpaceX’s fourth launch live.Â But, as everyone reading this already knows, they nailed it this time.
I had the chance last December to meet a lot of the people on the propulsion side of this project, including Tom Mueller, Kevin Brogan, Glen N, and several others.Â I was impressed at the time with the quality of the team, and with what they’ve accomplished.Â Most of the original design work on the Falcon I vehicle was done by only a small handful of people as I understand it.Â I hope they’re proud of what they’ve accomplished–they should be.
I’m glad that their hard work has finally paid off.
They’ve still got a long way to go from here to where they want to achieve, but this was an awesome milestone.Â Congrats guys!
