Another Rocket in the Stable

The Antares maiden launch appears to have gone well: Private company succeeds in test launch of rocket that will carry cargo ship

About 10 minutes after the launch from Wallops Island on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Orbital Sciences Corp. of Dulles declared the test a success after observing a practice payload reach orbit and safely separate from the rocket…

The company from the Washington suburb of Dulles was one of two, along with California-based competitor SpaceX, chosen to supply the space station after NASA ended its three-decade-old shuttle program in 2011. The space agency turned to private companies for the job, saying it would focus on getting manned flights to asteroids and to Mars.

It’s almost like we’re watching the “giggle factor” dissolve away in real-time.
