Why the Dragon Spacecraft Success Opens a New Era In Space Exploration

Dragon orbited the planet gathering crucial data for future missions. Then it re-entered the Earth's atmosphere, opening its parachute and splashing gracefully in the Pacific Ocean, right on its projected target—this hasn't happened since the Apollo years! The SpaceX crew has already recovered the capsule.

[...]This launch signals a new beginning in the age of space exploration. Congratulations, SpaceX.
