Congratulations to Elon Musk for a successful and historic lift off carrying 1,000 pounds of needed supplies for the International Space Station. The Space X Falcon 5 Dragon Rocket lit up the eastern skyline with it’s rocket engines rapidly burning bright I observed tonight from Orlando some 60 miles away.

Another demonstration of cutting edge technology making itself known to the world along with Telsa Motors S Model (mine being built now) both pioneered by Elon.
