Great to witness the first major commercial success in space and that too on the very first mission! ...@Nic, thanks for the link!

I second that Rick. Just as then Man landing on the Moon was amazing, to me it was equally amazing that it was transmitted back to Earth to our TV receivers; with the current feat we are equally amazed to witness updates of this newest Space adventure streamed to our portable devices: http://www.spacex.com/updates.php. Here's to ingenuity and innovation!

I watched the moon landing on a B&W TV and can now watch Space 2.0 arrive on the Internet. Geez, engineers just don't get enough credit for the amazing stuff they do.

I feel like a kid watching John Glenn on my parent's Dumont TV. This is the long delayed future. The TOTAL cost of SpaceX developing the engine, the booster AND the Dragon is less than 1/2 what NASA pays Boeing per YEAR to develop the Orion Crew vehicle. Both started the SAME year, Boeing has yet to fly. Bravo SpaceX folks, you are making geeks proud.

Thanks for the updates, George. This is great news, IMO, and the logical next step in space ventures. And its not JUST that we're dealing with a private company operating without the direct involvement of NASA program management. It is also that a reusable space craft has been sent up unmanned. Let's hope for continued success.

NASA and SpaceX spent most of last week dampening expectations for what was after all a "test flight." Few could've guessed Dragon would make it all the way to the International Space Station on the first try. The sensor, comms and other navigation systems used for the first time on this flight worked as well as could be expected. When faced with a last-minute radar glitch just meters from the ISS, the SpaceX team fixed the problem. SpaceX did what it said it would do. Now NASA has what looks like a viable way of getting back to low Earth orbit. Now the space agency must do what it says it will do and come up with a system that will take us somewhere beyond Earth orbit.

At the start of the mission, I wonder what they thought the chances would be of success on first try....

Don Pettit joked after the capture that it was a pretty easy "sim" and he was ready to do it again for real....

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.
