Meanwhile, SpaceX launches humanity's first commercial payload into space. I'll say that again. The first commercial payload in history has been launched, everything running as smooth as only a very competent thing can, and it's currently en route for the International Space Station.
And while Dragon 9 isn't the equal of the European ATV in terms of automatic guidance&navigation, I am in awe of what SpaceX has achieved in the last five years.
