Falcon 1 makes orbit

One of the highlights of the year is Mark Anderson's excellent FiRe conference in San Diego. It's there that we first met Elon Musk, the only man I know with a leased Pacific island, his own space programme, and minions employees in jumpsuits. No fluffy cat, but give him time...

Late last night UK time his Falcon I rocket made orbit for the first time.

It's even more impressive when you realise that was only the fourth launch, and the total investment to reach orbit was only $120 million.


Internet memes are taking over my mind.

Does the result of the recent vote in Congress mean that the bailout is now an EPIC FAILout?

Enquiring minds and all that.
