More about SpaceX:
SpaceX is developing a family of launch vehicles intended to reduce the
cost and increase the reliability of both manned and unmanned space
transportation ultimately by a factor of ten. With its Falcon line of
launch vehicles, powered by Merlin engines, SpaceX is able to offer
light, medium and heavy lift capabilities to deliver spacecraft into any
inclination and altitude, from low Earth orbit to geosynchronous orbit
to planetary missions. 

As winner of the NASA Commercial Orbital Transportation Services
competition, SpaceX will conduct three flights of its Falcon 9 launch
vehicle and Dragon spacecraft for NASA. This will culminate in Dragon
berthing with the International Space Station and returning safely to
Earth. When the Shuttle retires in 2010, Falcon 9 / Dragon will have the
opportunity to replace the Shuttle in servicing the Space Station.
