Falcon soars

If you missed my previous post today, SpaceX launched an unmanned rocket earlier for a demo flight.  The Falcon 9 v1.1.

Check out some awesome photos at the SpaceX site.

From NASASpaceFlight.com:

SpaceX have enjoyed a huge success via the launch the first flight of its new Falcon 9 v1.1 rocket on Sunday, carrying an array of payloads including Canada’s CASSIOPE technology demonstration satellite. Liftoff took place from Vandenberg Air Force Base at the start of a three-hour window that opened at 09:00 local time (16:00 UTC).

The whole thing was streamed live and looked something like this…
