Dragon is in Orbit!

The Dragon spacecraft is safely in orbit and has deployed its solar panels. The launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket took place on time at 3:44 a.m. EDT.  The flight to orbit appeared to go nominally throughout. This begins a 3-day voyage to try to berth with the International Space Station.

Congratulations to SpaceX! And good luck with the rest of the mission to the International Space Station.
