    Space X....

    I watched the flawless launch of the Falcon for nearly 10 minutes yesterday. I walked away as they were about to unfurl the solar arrays. It was a thing of beauty.Wow, I thought, these guys are good, and hope that the ORB team comes close to that type execution. Could it be this easy? Came back to my PC to read about how they were having problems with 3 of 4 thrusters and that the Dragon was flying on its own. Two CRS missions and two problems. That didn't seem to help ORBs stock price. We have no idea how a SpaceX stock price would have reacted had this occurred and they were a public company. I am glad they seem to have fixed the problems....I am also glad that ORB has not yet chosen to enter the human space flight array.
