"Major Milestone In U.S. History": Falcon 9 Crew Launch Marks Huge Win for Musk, SpaceX

Regardless of how Elon Musk's other ventures are currently doing, the country is undoubtedly one step closer to space tourism thanks to a successful SpaceX launch that took place this weekend. At the same time, NASA is reaping the rewards of its gamble to partner with private industry.

On March 1 at 2:49 AM, SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket launched, carrying a crew capsule with a life-sized test dummy named Ripley. The rocket carried Crew Dragon on its way to the space station, where it will spend five days docked to an orbiting outpost before making a splashdown back into the Atlantic ocean next Friday. The launch represents crucial training for the next space demo, which may take place this summer – only this time with two astronauts.
