Congratulations to SpaceX

Another Launch from SpaceX
SpaceX, a private company based in Hawthorne, California, became the first private company to receive a commercial license from the Federal Aviation Administration to re-enter a spacecraft from orbit. They received their license yesterday.

I congratulate everyone at SpaceX for being a part of this historic moment. I look forward to one day seeing many other companies receiving such a permit.

I think commercial use of outer space is definitely in our future, much like commercial airlines and other types of commercial aviation. NASA leads the way in technology, which allows private companies to come in behind them so NASA can push even farther into outer space.
