Falcon 1 is going to try for orbit this evening. The launch will be broadcast live. This is groundbreaking first. If it succeeds, the Falcon 1 would be the first rocket from the new space industry to make orbit.
SpaceX also just successfully test-fired the Falcon 9, a much heavier and more capable rocket.
