Can SpaceX Finally Do What NASA Failed To Do?

SpaceX made history in May when it successfully docked with the International Space Station. This was a feat that only Governments were able to accomplish. Can SpaceX finally do what NASA has failed to do? Can the space program finally take a giant leap forward with commercial enterprises? Are we finally getting back to good engineering in this country? Can we finally make those big leaps that we were promised so long ago? (I was suppose to have a flying car in 2000 according to IBM and Avery Brooks – I was promised flying cars!). Will the commercial sector say it’s time to move forward?
This is a very inspirational video of SpaceX and their recent successful docking of their Dragon Capsule with the Space Station.
This company seems to be making the right steps and demonstrating what is possible without Govt. bureaucracy (there is some when you’re partnering with the Govt), excessive overhead, and a drive to “Get it Done!”
