The SpaceX/NASA launch taking place in tomorrow is exciting stuff! I feel like this geeky space news needs to be as widely spread and talked about and blogged about as much as is humanly possible.

Hopefully this is just a launch pad (pun fully intended) to greater things.

Here’s (another) piece about this news. Enjoy!
