SpaceX Dragon Launch Friday Morning

The SpaceX Dragon spacecraft is set to launch at 10:10am on the second of 12 missions to resupply the International Space Station. If successful, this trip will mark another step toward private industry proving that they can handle trips into space.  Eventually, manned space travel will return to the US for the first time since the shuttle program was disbanded.

I wasn't able to make the trip down to Kennedy Space Center to witness the launch in person, but I'll be following the #NASASocial hashtag. You should too! I've embedded some of my favorite tweets below.
