This is a high stakes venture at a time when the United States does not have an available "ferry" to the Space Station. Good luck!

uh... spent some time to read Elon Musk on wiki, what a poor man, he is not a genius, undergradute phys degree won't change 2 much of this world. so far he is doing low level engineering works, spaceX basically copy/paste NASA's IPs, he is better supported than North Korea which helped in his success, but nothing worth boasting. Tesla... tech level should not be 2 far above a undergraduate/high school project... a boy fulled with hollywood fantasies and wish to change the world in a cheap way, that just won't work... I bet Yi Cui's battery firm if succeed will have far deeper impact...

So far, so good, Frank. NASA reports that solar arrays and nav sensors on Dragon "trunk" deployed properly, and the spacecraft's GPS was nominal. An interesting side note: SpaceX reportedly confirmed during a post-launch press conference that the Falcon 9 second stage carried to orbit the remains of 300 human beings, including Gordon Cooper, one of the original Mercury astronauts. Technically, therefore, they WERE carrying an astronaut!

This is already a fantastic and historic achievement. I really hope they are able to complete the entire mission.
