Private spaceflight stories

There are spaceports all over the world, but they're built by governments and militaries and meant for launching super secret spacecraft, not your luxury liner to the moon. The idea of regular spaceflight is still something we leave to astronauts and sci-fi authors, but the U.K. is taking its first step toward that goal, and the U.S. its second.
NASA and SpaceX have decided on a time for the latter's Dragon commercial space capsule to return to our planet. Once again you'll be able to watch it live, but this time you may actually be able to sleep in. UPDATE: Dragon successfully splashed down at 11:42 A.M. PDT. See more here.
