I find it amazing that a borderline madman and a tired old government agency could accomplish this. Brilliant !

Have you also seen the "space train" go over that Musk is doing? Launching more tonight.

"Elon Musk’s rocket company, SpaceX, made history on Saturday when its Crew Dragon capsule safely reached space carrying two NASA astronauts. It was the first time a private company had put a human into orbit.

On Sunday, Crew Dragon went on to successfully dock with the International Space Station (ISS), which the astronauts are now safely aboard.

The historic launch marks the first time NASA astronauts have blasted off from American soil since the Space Shuttle Program ended in 2011. "
