This has nothing to do with UAVs, but it's cool all the same. SpaceX, the Elon Musk company that aims to be the first private effort to make it to orbit, is scheduled to launch their fourth attempt this afternoon, sometime after 4:00 PST. All details and live webcast as soon as they start the countdown here.

[UPDATE: it's on. Webcast here.]

[UPDATE 2: THEY DID IT! Huge congrats to the SpaceX team!]

Truly awe-inspiring! This, not NASA (god love'm), is what we've been dreaming about since we were children: spaceflight tempered only by ingenuity. Go Team SpaceX! Congrats Elon.

A true Hallmark of Spaceflight.

Instead of investing billions in dot coms, creating billionaire CEO's who then invest in aerospace, investors should bypass the dot coms and invest directly in aerospace.
