Last week something remarkable happened. I'm not talking about the UFO sighted over Brisbane (…or am I?) Last week Spacex successfully orbited the first successful commercial attempt to launch such a device. Wind River is proud to be a part of this historic endeavor.
It's hard to convey how exciting this is. This represents a HUGE step for mankind, a transition of the technology necessary for space exploration now being handled by commercial entities. Something like this may be our fledgling answer for "what to do about Manned exploration now that ARES is cut".
