pigrabbitbear writes "Commercial spaceflight is inching closer to reality. SpaceX Dragon capsule is set to launch on the company’s Falcon 9 rocket from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island, Virginia on April 30, 2012. It will dock with the International Space Station a few days later on May 3; the crew will grapple the capsule with the station’s robotic arm. But even a successful mission won’t mean open access to low Earth orbit for the masses. It’s a small step. Not quite a giant leap for mankind."
