"The fact is, we are living in an age of jihadi terror. And the threat and likelihood of more attacks will be with us for years to come."
Nobody in America wanted to spend generations fighting terrorists, but that’s what it’s going to take.

SpaceX CRS-5 Launch: Full Video | International Space Station
After five successful missions to the International Space Station, including four official resupply missions for NASA, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft lifted off from Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida, for their fifth official Commercial Resupply (CRS) mission to the orbiting lab. If all goes as planned, Dragon will arrive at the station approximately two days after liftoff. Dragon is expected to return to Earth four-and-a-half weeks later for a parachute-assisted splashdown off the coast of southern California. Dragon is the only operational spacecraft capable of returning a significant amount of supplies back to Earth, including experiments.
