SpaceX Launches Private Capsule on Historic Trip to Space Station

I love Space X. I got on the computer and this morning to see this wonderful article about the Falcon 5 rocket and Dragon capsule. The rocket's second stage is carrying ashes from 308 people, including James Doohan, "Scotty," and Gordon Cooper, the Mercury program astronaut. Wow! Go Team Space Flight!

When I see progress like this being made I get all tearie-eyed. Partly, I think, because Fire in the Sky by Kristoph Klover is so ingrained in my heart - I get chills every time I hear it and I remember all that has gone before, including the dreamers. None of this could have happened without someone dreaming about it first.

Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me

What a great morning!
