The article:

It may not be as exciting as the Apollo 11, but I do find exciting that SpaceX has put a commercial satellite in orbit for the first time, launching a Falcon I rocket from the Marshall Islands.

SpaceX launched a Malaysian satellite into orbit using the two-stage Falcon, a rocket developed and built from scratch by the company. The satellite, called RazakSAT, is designed to take high resolution pictures of Malaysia.

If all goes as planned, SpaceX will soon deliver material to the International Space Station in the future.

This is really good for the future of space travel, they are taking the power of leaving the surface of Earth from governments to the space companies and that will lead to an explosion in space technologies.

Also everyone knows that I trust mega corps as much as I would trust Hitler but in this case I have to make an exception, since this is vital to the survival of the human race to get off this planet and start to colonize space.
