Submission + - SpaceX's Dragon module successfully re-enters. (

Zitchas writes: Following the news of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket with a Dragon module on-board, and its arrival on orbit, we now have the news that is has successfully re-entered the atmosphere and splashed down in the Pacific. As their website proudly claims, this is the first time a private corporation has recovered a spacecraft they orbited, joining the ranks of a few space nations and the EU space agency.

A great step forward for space travel. Hopefully everything continues to go well for them.
