Falcon 1 on Target for December 19th Launch

SpaceX is back on track for their historic first launch with Falcon 1, "the worlds lowest cost rocket to orbit." Falcon 1 looks like a go for December 19th, carrying a payload for DARPA and the US Air Force.
Private companies such as this carrying payloads into space for the heavy hitters in the space technology arena is become more of a reality. SpaceX alone has numerous launches already contracted in the coming few years, and others are joining the mix as we speak.
This ground-breaking venture is a harbinger of things to come in the changing face of space exploration, and we are excited to be witnessing this event.
We are anticipating this launch with bated breath indeed, thus will be bringing you continuing coverage here at SpaceBlog Alpha, so check back often.
