Our satellite is in space right now all thanks to SpaceX. While it may not be as exciting as most launches, this one in particular is done by a private company and its successful!

SpaceX launched a Malaysian satellite into orbit using the two-stage Falcon, a rocket developed and built from scratch by the company. The satellite, called RazakSAT, is designed to take high resolution pictures of Malaysia.

If all goes as planned, SpaceX will soon deliver material to the International Space Station in the future. [SpaceX]
