Photos and Video from Today’s SpaceX Rocket Launch

This morning, private space flight company SpaceX successfully launched one of its Falcon 9 rockets into orbit from Cape Canaveral. You may remember that back in June, SpaceX launched a Falcon 9; this launch is a bigger deal because today’s rocket contained one of SpaceX’s Dragon capsules, which the company plans to load with cargo and ultimately people in future missions. (Today’s Dragon was unmanned.) Following the launch, the Dragon is planned to circle the planet twice, then drop off in the Pacific 90 minutes later. Below, photos grabbed from SpaceX’s livecam feed during the launch:
