First real private flight to the space station takes off tonight

UPDATE: The launch went fine; docking set for Wednesday.

SpaceX sends its Dragon rocket to the Interneational Space Station tonight (Sunday, 8:35 pm. launch time). The flight this summer was a test; this one is carrying real supplies. If all goes well, it will dock with the ISS on Wednesday. Here's the official press kid, in PDF.

It goes without saying that this is Very Cool Indeed. (But I said it anyway.)

The Bad Astronomy guy is psyched, too.
