SpaceX First Launch to ISS (unmanned) might seem like no big deal, to some. It's something I have been waiting for since I was 15 years old (35-ish years ago) and dreamt up a story called Dusters. It's a first,of many more to come. They are getting to the ISS at a fraction of the cost for NASA to do it. I am not knocking NASA, just stating a fact. And NASA had a lot of oversight/input on this project.
Frankly I think this is fantastic, and America should be proud to have another "first" in space. I can only imagine what we might accomplish if a number of companies from different countries team up and go do something in space that is profitable. It will happen some day, hopefully soon.
