I’ll admit, I have a somewhat personal reason to be interested; I know someone who holds an important enough position at SpaceX they were contacted and interviewed – personally – by Elon Musk. So of course I watched Dragon fly. That is the very first time a reusable rocket carried human beings into space. We’re seeing a lot of history made lately, but it’s hard to get excited about a lot of it. This is different.
I’m waiting to see what percolates through my mind, but I suspect a story – or more than one – may come out of this. I already wrote one story based on SpaceX, when they launched the Tesla roadster into space. For the first time in a long time, I have watched the news, and I am feeling happy and excited, even thrilled. The rest of you presumably don’t know my friend, but I’m just wondering if any of you are excited by this?
