MSNBC.com is reporting the successful launch of the low-cost Falcon 1 orbital delivery system.
This comes just hours after an aborted launch attempt due to a "communications glitch."
Although the second stage did tumble into a half-orbit, the rocket reached an altitude of 187+ miles, officially reaching space and proving its concept was sound.
Elon Musk said it was likely the company would proceed with scheduled launches later this year.
