SpaceX gears up for ISS supply launch

SpaceX encore: 2nd private space station shipment
     On Sunday night, SpaceX will attempt to launch another Dragon capsule full of food, clothes and science experiments for the astronauts at the space station. The company hopes to repeat the success of its test flight in May.

     It is long overdue that private enterprise take the lead in the exploration of space and SpaceX is well ahead of the pack when it comes to getting the job done, better, cheaper, and safer than a tangled  bureaucracy that answers to the whims of politicians and public opinion.
