Set to launch two NASA astronauts to space station.

All eyes are on the Kennedy Space Center in Florida as SpaceX prepares to a historic launch. A SpaceX Falcon 9 Rocket is set to send two NASA astronauts into eorbit -- a first for a private company.

Funny that this is considered 'historic' simply because our country has walked backwards for so long. Wasn't the first moon landing in 1969? Wasn't the first mannned space mission WAY before that? WTF is so historic or groundbreaking here? Flatscreens???

First private company (piggybacking off of years of publicly-funded research) to send a manned mission into space (supported by government funding!)

I mean I think the argument that NASA was *always* a slush-fund for the aerospace industry is a little too strong and totalizing but in the current public-private partnership iteration that's absolutely the case.

They showed the test launch and how the capsule they are in can immediately break away in the event of an emergency. Seems at least way safer than the shuttle setup.
