SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket launched late Friday afternoon, bearing much of the hopes of the fledgling commercial space industry with it.
The launch was picture perfect, with a dummy payload delivered in orbit, as planned.
The Falcon 9 will propel both cargo loads and human crews aboard SpaceX's Dragon capsule to the International Space Station.
Beleagured by Republican critics who want to keep the space industry nationalized and a messy divorce, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk wearily commented, "There’s more weight on our shoulders... I wish there weren’t."

Privatization of space will happen no matter what NASA does and everyone supports this, but we still need NASA to conduct research no one else will do because it isn't immediately profitable.
