The missile was boasting Launch Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral yesterday. All nine engines of the first stage were lit for a short while.
IN joyful and emotionalizedSpaceX CEO Elon Musk has promised that the first astronauts will be able to go to the International Space Station right after that summer – if the test flight in February goes ahead.
This is an important first step, and if the 21 successful Falcon 9 only started in 2018 is something that can happen, chances are pretty good that SpaceX can handle this.
