SpaceX Launch Success!


I am sure many of you heard the good news, but if you did not, SpaceX made history with the successful launch of satellites into space followed by a successful landing in Florida. This success after the explosion earlier this summer, is a critical first step for our SpaceX10 launch timeline. The next big step will be the successful launch of SpaceX8, currently scheduled for February 2016. We will keep you posted as we learn more about our launch timeline, but at this point we are still scheduled for NET (no earlier than) June 10, 2016.
