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...

Link to NASA press conference, opening with SpaceX founder Elon Musk saying the flight of its Dragon spacecraft to the International Space is so far "spot on": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9MaFqZUQkE&NR=1&feature=endscreen

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.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
