FALCON-1 MAKES HISTORY: GOES ORBITAL and MUSK CELEBRATES!

The Falcon-1 booster made orbit this evening giving SpaceX and Elon Musk a place in space history with an effort of less than six years and fewer than 500 employees! CONGRATULATIONS on a "picture perfect" launch [VIDEO].

"This is one of the greatest day of my life," SpaceX CEO Elon Musk said. "The future of SpaceX is really great! This is just the first step of many. There are so many cool things in the future."

Musk went on to say that this is " a culmination of a dream; yeah, wow!" The latest on the flight of Falcon 1 Flight 4 is here. More on the launch from the MercuryNews.
