SpaceX Successfully Orbits with Falcon 1

First privately developed liquid fuel rocket to orbit the Earth

Wow, this is a great day for SpaceX and the culmination of an enormous amount of work by a great team. The data shows we achieved a super precise orbit insertion — middle of the bullseye — and then went on to coast and restart the second stage, which was icing on the cake.I will have a more complete post launch statement tomorrow, as right now I'm in a bit of a daze and need to go celebrate :)—Elon—
