After three previous launches that ended prematurely, it looks as if SpaceX has finally launched their Falcon 1 rocket, setting a stage for NewSpace (aka the private space sector) and more importantly humanity.

Here is a link (windows media player) to the video for those of you who might have missed the launch. an image of the Falcon rocket at liftoff.

Here is a video of the launch (hat tip: Space Transport News).

Note: Space Transport News has more!

Update: Some are saying that the video is linking to the second launch. I will see if I can hunt down a video towards the fourth launch (as SpaceX has yet to post an official video of the launch an official video of the launch in their gallery section).

Update 2: Clark via Space Transport News has found a video of the launch via YouTube! 🙂
