Entrepreneur Musk Re-Fuels SpaceX w/$100 Million

Entrepreneur Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX, has pledged an additional $100-million of his personal fortune to his fledgling small-rocket company. Determined to see his Falcon series of boosters to successful Earth orbit despite the March 24 loss of the first Falcon 1 spacecraft to a fuel line leak, and amid seemingly eroding Air Force support, Musk is pumping in more hard cash.

Immediately following the loss of Falcon 1 at the Kwajalein Atoll on the central Pacific Ocean launch site, Musk said "come hell or high water, we are going to make this work."

I maintain the Space Blogroll, a list of as many space-related blogs as I can find. I added your blog to the blogroll today, the 131st blog I've added so far. If you would like to display the Space Blogroll on your blog (and it's ok if you don't, you're in there regardless), you can find the necessary code here.
